My Tips

  1. For a wash of color, a flat, firm brush is great to get the product to the lid, but then using your finger tip or a fluffier eyeshadow brush works well for dispersing the color more evenly as a wash of color.
  2. For more intense color, a firm, flat brush works well for applying, patting, and packing on the color without blending it out too much.  Use a fingertip or a fluffy brush to soften the edges as you work.
  3. If you are more prone to creasing/fading or have oilier eyelids, while some eyeshadows may last, you may still want to apply primer underneath for extra hold.
