Ask Ashley: Long Lasting Eyeshadow | Bellingham Makeup Artist

“How do I keep my eye makeup in place? My lids get so oily that it either ends up in my creases or sliding off my eye!

– Amanda”

One of the best pieces of insurance you can buy when it comes to eye makeup is eye shadow primer.bellingham makeup artist Eye shadow primer is fabulous for many reasons.

1) It will balance out the skin-tone and coloration in your eyelid.
2) It will keep your eye shadow from creasing.
3) It will keep your eye shadow in place and looking freshly applied all day long.

Use your finger to gently dab a little across your lid and then apply your eye shadow immediately following. The pigment and color of your eye shadow will really stick to the color, which is great, but I like to put down a layer of skin-colored matte eye shadow first to create a blending base on top of the primer. Otherwise, it may be difficult to blend bolder colors. But do this and I promise your eyes will look fresh all day long! The only time you wouldn’t want to use an eye shadow primer is if you’re using a cream eye shadow as they will not stick to each other and will melt off.

I love Urban Decay’s Primer Potion and Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance Primer. Make sure to only use the minimal amount needed to cover your eyelid. A little goes a long way so one tube will last you quite a while!
