I have a few new eye makeup products that I really like and I thought I would share them with you! I really love my new base shadow, Satin Taupe. It goes on evenly and can be layered for a deeper color, or worn “lighter” for daytime!
Here is a list of the products I used:
In order of appearance. . .
Mac eyeshadow primer in Painterly
Mac eyeshadow in Satin Taupe
Mac eyeshadow in Espresso
Mac eyeshadow in Phloof!
Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in Black/Brown
CoverGirl Lash Blast in Blackest Black
Ulta Amped Lashes in Jet Black–a few layers of this=great thickness.
Bare Escentuals double ended brush, Contour & Definte
Bare Escentuals, (white brush) Soft Focus Eyeshadow
Costco Kirkland brand small angled brush (for eyeshadow under bottom lashes)
1. Why do you use 2 mascaras?
Well for one thing, I have the most pathetic eyelashes of all time. I think I have about 10 lashes per eye. It’s really sad. So I’ve spent most of my life searching for amazing mascara. What I have found is CoverGirl Lash Blast is great as a “base”. It adds length and a bit of thickness, but will not weigh my sad little lashes down. Then finishing with a clumpier, thicker mascara adds the fullness I like too! I know, so involved.
2. Is eyeshadow primer necessary?
I think yes. It helps the shadow go on evenly and not budge at ALL during the day. I have also used Bare Escentuals Prime Time eye primer, which is serious business. It’s literally like super glue for shadow, but feels like nothing is on your eyes. Perfect for wedding days! I use Mac primer because it’s great and doesn’t require too much rubbing to take it off at night.
