As we set out for parties this holiday season, how do we ensure our stunning eye makeup makes it through the first round of dancing? The quickest and easiest way to keep your eye makeup put, and not wind up a smeary mess by night’s end, takes the perfect product. Lovely lids begin with a great base.
After your skin care regime begin with a dual product like Skindinavia’ Face and Eye Primer. This skin care line has been my go-to for many occasions due to their long-wear makeup formula. Skindinavia’s face and eye primer is a gel that extends wear for both liquid and mineral based makeups. It blends color, prevents clumping, creasing and sliding for over 16 hours!
About those peepers…for those of us who wear a minimum of three shadows and are prone to crying at weddings, Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion is a dream in a tube. This miracle eyeshadow primer is like no other. The formula is full of silicone, which aids in a smooth silky application, that dares to crease. Feel free dab on with the wand and blend with your finger. A little goes a long way!
If you prefer a flesh tone base that works on all all skin tones try Paula Dorf’s Eye Primer. This light cream smooths and neutralizes the eyelid so eye color looks true and does not budge. Best applied with an eye brush, "pat" on entire lid from lash line to brown then blend out using smooth even strokes. Makes for a perfect blend for a crease less eye makeup application.
Keep those peepers dazzling, and sparkling all night!
