When I reached the advent of my womanhood, I realized that eyeshadows weren’t for the extreme vain only. Eyeshadows further enhance someone’s eyes – make them more dramatic, fun-looking, and pretty. A wide palette of colors are around in the market for the ladies to choose what they think is best for them. But one day, wearing my favorite eyeshadow, I notice, my eyeshadow’s gone by lunch time. What might the reason be?
Well, there exists the term “oily lids”. At first I was..wha? Oily lids? Even my lids were oily! *Sob* Yes, there is such a term. So to prevent that, we need some “base” that would hold the eyeshadows. A primer, of some sort. My favorite product? Definitely the Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Packaged in a precious, genie-like bottle, Eyeshadow Primer Potion is an ultra-sheer, totally nude eye base that glides on with the wave of a wand and then disappears instantly. It’s the ultimate eye prep for smoother, longer-lasting, crease-proof eyeshadow.To use: Apply and let dry before putting on your favorite eyeshadow shades, for dazzling eye looks that stay put.
Many have claimed to have the Urbay Decay Primer Potion as their Holy Grail eyeshadow base. For me, it really is. It keeps your eyeshadow intact, very much beautiful until the end of the day, no matter how oily your lids are.
But for those who don’t have budget for it ( totally understandable, this is an accessory item in the makeup kit ), and who choose not to allot some amount for an eyeshadow base, that’s okay, we have an alternative! ….Well?
Tadah….get the creamy concealer in your makeup kit, and apply it as an eyeshadow base. That’s all you need, and you’ll have long-lasting great lid color.
The Paladio Herbal Treatment Concealer is a great alternative for long-lasting lid color! Dual purpose – helps you conceal and treat your red areas, and keep your oily lids at bay!
Well, to apply, just swipe a small amount to your entire lid, and make it as neutral or transluscent as possible, then wait for like 10 seconds to dry. Then apply your eyeshadow as you normally would
So, that’s achieving ultimate satisfaction, without hurting your budget. Wow!
Just a P.S., I actually thought it was only my own problem since, but I realized that alot of women also had this problem, thus this entry.
