Longer Lasting Eye Shadow

Q: How can I make my eye shadow stay on longer?
 
A: Todayís cosmetics are designed for long wear and smooth coverage, but sometimes you want to do something to help maximize these effects. Eye shadow is an especially important area to pay attention to. Because the eye has many folds and creases as it opens and closes, eye shadow can often clump and crease as it gets worn for longer periods of time.
 
To combat these problems, try using a cream eye shadow for smooth, blendable color. If cream eye shadow isnít your thing, make sure to use a good moisturizer on the face and especially around the eyes. Once the skin is well moisturized, you can apply powder eye shadow and get a longer lasting effect. Applying the eye shadow with a brush will also help to give smoother, more even application and blending.
