The secret to getting your eye shadow to last all day is simple. Use eye primer. Mizzie and I swear by them and thought we'd share our two favorites with you this week. Once I discovered Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion, there was no turning back. And Mizzie loves her MAC eye paints.
I luv, luv, luv MAC eye paints. They come in a pot and in a tube. They are both wonderful and I never, literally, never put on my make-up without them. They are the best primer for your eyes to help shadow go on smoothly and stay crease free and fresh looking all day long. I like to play with layering shadow colors over different colored paints. For a natural look, I use Bare Canvas or Bare Study. It is my number one product, I recommend it for everyone!
Mizzie is right. MAC eye paint has some real staying power. And a little bit goes a long way, so don't let the size of the product fool you. You need hardly any to get complete coverage that will last you all day.
Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion is my genie in a bottle. This is the first primer product I've used, since the MAC eye paint, that no matter what my day holds my eyeshadow never creases. Even during the 100 degree Nashville summer, when all my other makeup felt like it was sliding off my face, my eye makeup stayed put. I also love the way it evens out the color on your eyelid to give you the perfect base. It actually enhances the color of your eyeshadow and you end of using less of it too. And like all Urban Decay products, it's cruelty free.
If you're new to eye primer, give one of these a try. You can find them online, at your nearest MAC or Sephora store or locally in Nashville, you can find the Urban Decay primer at the Cosmetic Market.
