Q&A: How can I make my eyeshadow last all day til night?

Thursday, April 17, 2008

If you would like to make your eye makeup adhere to your skin more, I would use cream shadows. They are of a slightly thicker blend; not thick though. I think they are "sturdier" and will last longer than the powder kinds that tend to fade easily.

Also try metallic shades of eyeliner in a pencil form. Again they are "thicker" and last longer. They also blends incredibly well and doesn't smudge like black. Darker shades of course will always show smudges more plainly. A quick fix up for smudges is take a little water or baby oil on a q-tip and lightly dab under eye. Don't pull at the skin under your eye, however, just dab in an inward stroking motion.

If you are not into the whole metallic thing, do the trick I do so that makeup stays on til you remove it! :)

Firstly, when I apply foundtion, I do not include the lids. What I do is that I apply a thin layer of Lancôme's Effacernes Longue Tenue on the lids. This is a concealer that has a smooth matte finish, and is waterproof. Then I dust it with loose powder until my finger glides. If your finger stops when you run your finger through it, you haven't used enough powder.

Next, I apply a base cream shadow all over the lid until my brow bones. I am loving MAC's Bare Canvas Paint. This product comes in a tube just like oil paints! But this one is a high tech, high performance eye shadow product which goes on creamy; dries to a powdery finish. I let it set for a few minutes then I start applying the eye makeup :)
