Vanesa Guallar, Make-up Artist for 17 has suggested two really easy ways to wear these shadows, so I’ve tried them out below…

The eye on the left hand side of the pic has matte grey 17 Solo Eyeshadow in Midnight Pearl in the crease of my eye bone, then blended outwards with 17 Solo Eyeshadow in Gold Emerald on the top of my eyelid.

The eye on the left has 17 Solo Eyeshadow in Violet Rock over my whole lid with Rose Quartz in the very corner of my eye.  I’m no make up artist or blending expert, but both of these took all of 2 seconds and look quite pretty I think!

The 17 Solo Eyeshadows from the Autumn Make up Collection 2010 are all lovely and could definitely all be worn alone as well as mixed together, they are perfect colours to get a really nice smokey eye going on!

You can buy 17 Solo Eyeshadows online at boots.com and they cost £3.49 each. (Bargain!)

17 have also released a new set of nail polish colours in their Autumn Make up collection.

There are 7 nail polishes in the Autumn collection:

Gemstone – a deep raspberry red nail polish (in pic above)

Ruby Gem – a bright pinky-red nail polish

Garnet – a sparkling scarlet nail polish

Smoky Marble – metallic grey nail polish

Purple Jewel – bold fuchsia nail polish

Tigers Eye - rich beige nail polish

I had the Gemstone nail polish from the 17 Autumn Make up collection to test and you can see in the pic above it is a lovely deep shimmering raspberry colour. The texture was a little bit thick though, so I had to apply it very carefully.

You can buy 17 Fast Finish nail polish online at boots.com and it costs £2.99 (again complete bargain!)
