It goes without saying that new skin care products are awesome, but there’s just something to be said about trying on a new eyeshadow for size. Maybe the instant gratification factor? Anyway, I recently got my hands on two great finds from one of my favorite new brands on blush: Gorgeous Cosmetics. When you paint your nails, you use a base and a topcoat, right? Well, that’s sort of the way I look at iPrime Eyeshadow Base and Shimmer Dust. Sandwich your regular shadow in between these two, and you’ll get more out of your look.
After you’re done with your foundation, use a concealer brush to dab the iPrime on your lids, and give it a minute to set. Whether you’re applying your usual everyday eyeshadow or going for a dramatic look, you’ll notice the primer magnifies the color a little, which is awesome! It also enables eyeshadow to last throughout the day without creasing.
When you’re done with your eyeshadow (or even if you opt for none at all and just want some shimmer … a great look with a swoop of black liquid liner, I say!) use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to dust on the Shimmer Dust. I tried it in “Sand Shimmer” and found it gives a gorgeous sheen to just about any color there is! You can also use it as a highlighter, right at the tops of your cheekbones, to draw attention to your bone structure.
