Quick Makeup Tip: Control That Cream Shadow

So serious, LOL!

Instead of swiping cream shadow directly on your lids with the applicator, use a dome-shaped eyeshadow brush. The brush will lay down a sheer layer of product, and it will allow you to place it exactly where you want, so you have more control!

First, I load my eyeshadow brush by running it directly along the applicator, then I remove any excess on the back of my hand before applying the shadow on my lids and lower lash lines.

Today I did this with Ilia Liquid Eye Tint in Fresco!

Smile! It’s going to be a great day.

Makeup worn in this look

This look took me about 15 minutes, and I did it all right before a 9 a.m. meeting. The bulk of my time was spent on my brows and lashes because they’ve both been stressing me out!

  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Instant Fix Concealer in Medium Deep Warm – Under my eyes, on my cheeks and around my mouth.
  2. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Golden – To set the concealer.
  3. MAC Omega and Concrete Eyeshadows – I mixed both and applied to my brows.
  4. Laura Mercier Eyeliner in Stormy Grey – Waterlines and lashlines, smudged.
  5. Ilia Fresco Eye Tint – Applied with a Laura Mercier domed shadow brush.
  6. Ilia Fullest Volumizing Mascara – Seriously, not the greatest, but I keep using it. Shrugs.
  7. Lilah B Lip Oil in B. Elegant – A lovely lip oil if you like nude lips.
  8. Laura Mercier Blush in Chai – Applied with a duo fiber brush.
