anyone can apply eye shadow…
The dilemma is; making your shadows seamlessly blend and intertwine for a mesmerizing jaw dropping look, is a little more tricky and time consuming then you initially thought.
My biggest downfall is my perfectionism. I was going to say obsessive compulsive, and that’s true to a certain extent, however it only applies to makeup! When applying my makeup, if my shadow isn’t perfectly blended, or both eyes don’t match up, and my brow shadow is a quarter mm higher then the other eye… I CAN’T. (Grabs makeup removing wipes, removes makeup, starts all over) and winged eyeliner. OMG. seriously, I’m sure every girl obsessed with makeup has had one of those days where one wing is perfect and the other side won’t come out. I will sit in front of my mirror until I perfect it. Obsessive Compulsive, I swear!
They say home is where the heart is, so my home is located in the premises of my bathroom.. and the MAC store. Mac Cosmetics is my ultimate favorite brand, because of their consistency. You never have to question if a new product is going to be of good quality. I know when I purchase anything from Mac, I’m guaranteed to love it, and that’s a fact. This post isn’t about Mac, so I will carry on.
Aside from Mac, my other favorite cosmetic company, specifically referring to eye shadow is,
one word to describe makeup forever’s artist shadows
having no parallel or equal; exceptional
Makeup Forever’s Artist Shadows consists of a long lasting, breakthrough gel-powder, with highly saturated, vibrant pigments. Blending your shadow with Makeup Forever’s products is effortless. The rich color, glides on, with optimal color, and the best thing is, it stays.In fact, it’s the only eye shadow that I don’t use a primer with, and if you have watched my Youtube Video’s, you are already aware that I am fanatical about primers!
This is a swatch of my three artist colors, with no primer.
As you can see, the eye shadow is true to color, very bright, and shimmery! They have a variety of colors you can purchase, that range from vibrant neon colors to matte colors.
I am new to the eye shadows by makeup forever, I’m stepping out of my MAC bubble. I LOVE MAKEUP FOREVER!
