Without a doubt, wearing eyeshadows is one the best ways to emphasise the beauty of your eyes.
You can easily add a captivating factor on your gaze by applying and blending satin, frosted, shimmery, matte or velvet eyeshadow colours around the eye area.
It’s truly amazing how a simple wash of colour across the lids can make you younger-looking and radiant in an instant.
For this reason, it is important that you are using the right eyeshadow product and application methods to preserve your eye makeup look from the moment you created it until such time you’re going to remove it.
Most makeup brands nowadays are offering eyeshadow primers that promise to make your eyeshadows stay longer on the skin or lids.
The right eyeshadow primers will definitely provide you with the eyeshadow longevity you wish to have.
Not only does it lock pigments in place, it also creates a smooth canvas for effortless eyeshadow application.
Did you know that concealers make a perfect alternative for traditional eye shadow primers?
Most concealers have a thick consistency that eyeshadow products can easily adhere to.
Simply apply a thin layer of concealers on your lids and apply your desired eyeshadows on them before the concealer sets.
You will notice that your eyeshadow will also show off a nicer colour with this technique.
You can also incorporate two different eyeshadow formulas to enhance the longevity of your eye makeup.
Use a cream eyeshadow as a base and then follow it up with a powder eyeshadow for both colours to have iron grip on the lids.
Cream eyeshadows can crease if it won’t be set with a powder.
On the other hand, powder eyeshadow will fade from the natural oils of the lid area.
Choosing a long-wearing eye shadow formula will definitely provide a valuable contribution to your eye makeup.
The lid area produces oils and this is one of the biggest reasons why eyeshadows sometimes appear like they evaporate in thin air in just a couple of hours.
If you have super-duper oily lids, try dabbing a translucent oil control powder around the eye area to minimise oil production before applying your eyeshadow.
