Stay put.

decrease.jpgI used to have a problem where my eyeliner would smudge onto my eyelids and it drove me absolutely nuts! Then I discovered using a eye shadow base to prep my lids before applying my eye makeup and I’ve never had the problem since.  Before this discovery, I would apply concealer or foundation prior to finshing my eye routine but it just didn’t seem to do the trick.  There are an array of shadow bases to choose from, but I use Loreal’s De-Crease base, it is priced under $10 and works wonderfully for my eyes. It is extra creamy and has an easy to use wand for application. I simply apply some to my lids, blend the product from lids to the brow bone, wait a few seconds and then start applying the rest of my eye makeup. It is an amazing solution for lasting everyday wear! And if you are looking for something super strength for special occasions, I highly recommend Benefit She Laq , it is clear sealant that can be applied over eyeliner, lipstick or brows for extra staying power. I hope these suggestions help your liner stay put like they did mine!

    I love the Loreal De_Crease Eye shadow base. I use it in the morning. The base color is great alone. It keeps me crease free for an entire work day. Seldom do I use other eye shadow. I just put on eyeliner, mascara and Bare Minerals loose powder and out the door I go. I have used other eye shadow base before which was an expensive mistake. The Loreal is the best for me.

    […] I’ve blogged before about eyeshadow primers and thought I’d found my favorite…until I tried Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. I joined the new Sephora Beauty Insider program (which I really recommend if you shop a lot there) and when you accumulate points you get sent exclusive product samples. On my last order, I picked a sample of the Primer Potion since my normal eyeshadow base, Loreal’s DeCrease, had run out. I gave it a try and instantly liked it more than my old staple. The consistency is very thin, smooth and blends perfectly into my lids. I wait a few minutes for it to completely dry, (I put on my foundation while I wait) and then apply my shadows, eyeliner and mascara. This product literally keeps my eye makeup exactly how I applied it the entire day! I have had zero creasing, smudging or fading. With the DeCrease product, it worked very well but there was some minimal damage done by the end of the day, especially if I was outside a lot. I think the Urban Decay formula works better for me because it is less creamy and more oil absorbing on my skin. I am ordering a full size as soon as my sample gets low. I am so glad I gave a new product a try even though I was pretty happy with my old one! […]
