My problem is with shadow. I feel like I’ve tried EVERYTHING imaginable to try and get my shadow to stay on all day, but haven’t had any luck yet. Help!
Hey there Cover_Grrrl,
I have a few go-to’s in my bag of tricks that are sure to get shadow to stay on for hours (literally, my girls can keep their same makeup for days after a good application).
But first let’s talk basics.
When is the last time you washed your brushes? Get a bottle of baby shampoo (just the cheap stuff) and shampoo all of your brushes until the water runs clear when you rinse them out. Gently squeeze the brushes and lay them flat to dry overnight. When you can see the brushes are coated, wash a few of them in the morning right after you use them just to keep them in good shape.
Don’t use eye cream or moisturizer on your lids in the morning.
Use a primer first. Give the powder shadows something to stick to with a cream primer.
I like, (from left to right), Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow, M.A.C Paint.
Only Shadow Insurance is a true primer, but the other two are great to grab on to shadows and hold on to them for a full creseless day.
