I try not to get too complicated when it comes to my makeup routine, but I do make a few changes when the the weather starts to heat up. First to go are usually powder shadows that can look heavy or chalky in the sunshine. I’ve been using THIS Lid Last Shadow Pen ($18) from Pixi in place of my usual powder shadows and really loving it. It’s easy to swipe on and blend using only fingers and it stays on without creasing (I still use a primer and matte powder shadow first so it has something to grab onto.) The shade is perfect too, a shimmering champagne that’s just a step beyond having bare lids, but not a full on heavy shadow look – something else I avoid in the hotter months when flushy cheeks and pink and coral lips take over for winter’s defined eyes.
I think this particular shade is part of a limited collection so find it soon, HERE are the other colors available in the crayon.
