Technical Tuesday Tip

Avoid raccoon eyes! How often do you notice that your perfect makeup job is ruined by eye shadow fallout under your eyes? This is a really common issue especially when using dark colors or doing smoky eye makeup. There are a couple of technical tricks you can use to keep your shadow from falling under your eyes.

  • Do your eye makeup first. Apply your eye shadow before adding foundation and concealer. This way you can clean up any fallout in advance. 
  • Option number 2, is to apply your foundation and concealer first. Then, use a triangle sponge to place loose powder directly under your eye. Once you’re done with your shadow use a powder brush to whisk away the extra powder and any fallout.
Bonus Tip: When using loose powder be sure to wipe away all the excess powder to avoid having the reverse raccoon eye like the starlets below.
