My Beauty Tip of the Day: Eye Shadow That Lasts

To keep your eye shadow from creasing, eliminate as much oil as possible from your lids. To do it, use an eye shadow base or pressed powder before applying color. I use a bit of concealer on my eyes, followed by my pressed powder and then my eye shadow. It sounds complicated, but itโ€™s worth it if you want your eye shadow to stay all day.

The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord areย radiant, giving light to the eyes (Psalm 19:8).

    Hey Nicole! I love this article! ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I was wondering, in the Chat room, when I enter it says my full name! I’ve tried in my profile to take it off but I can’t and my parents don’t want me to have my full name out there. Please help!

    The foundation and powder thing didn’t really work for me.
    Primer is awesome. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion is really good. It’s about $25 for one teeny bottle, but since you use so little of it (Like, a speck every day) it lasts a LONG time. It also makes ALL your eyeshadow (Even the cheap crap! Except the NYC stuff. That stuff’s too cheap, and is beyond hope, lol) look great and last a long time.

    I sound like some kinda Urban Decay infomercial. XD

      Pressed powder is like regular face powder only it’s in a cake kind of form. It’s all smashed together pretty much and goes on more cakey! ๐Ÿ™‚
