Hello people! I wanted to do a blog about my favorite eye shadow and eye shadow primers that work great for me. First of my absolute favorite eye shadow palette is the smashbox full exposure palette it has matte colors on the bottom and shimmer colors on top. I don’t tend to wear very vibrant colors as far as eye shadow goes so the neutral color this palette provides me is absolutely perfect for the look I try to achieve. Eye shadow is by far  my favorite part of makeup because it’s so versatile and easy to have fun with. I know most people rave about this eye shadow primer and that eye shadow  primer but honestly if you have normal/oily skin you understand the problems that occur when eye shadow creases that’s why I use nyx waterproof concealer for my eye shadow primer not only does it make my colors more vibrant and bold it is substantially less expensive than most other products out there so it is perfect for anyone who’s on a tight budget. Now even though I hardly use vibrant colors on myself  on certain occasions or when a guest comes in and wants a vibrant look I use white eyeliner on the eyelid and bled it thoroughly to really enhance any colors I plan on using on the eye. A trick to eyeshadow is if you are doing dark colors such as black or a dark brown make sure that you do your eye makeup before you do your foundation that way you wont have to worry about removing any pesky dark specks from the lower part of your  face. If you blend eyeshadow too close to the brow the easiest way to remove it without affecting the rest of the eye is take a dry sponge and move outward on the eye. At the end of the day when you need to remove your makeup dermalogica offers a soothing eye makeup remover that is gentle on the eyes and gives water proof makeup a run for their money. The skin on your eyes in very thin so it is very essential that you moisturize your lids like you would the rest of your face. Mana Yoga and health offers all Dermalogica products to really treat your skin how it deserves to be treated! Again thank you so much for reading enjoy!
