Eyeshadow seems to be something a lot of us struggle with perfecting. That, and contouring, but you can learn more about that here. It might surprise you to learn that eyeshadow isn't as tricky as it seems, especially if you're equipped with the right products to make the job easier.
In my opinion, the age of cut creases and carefully placed shadow are over, and we're moving into a trend of washes of colour over the lids, soft blending and hints of shimmer. An essential I like to keep on hand is Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick, which happens to be excellent for beauty beginners.
What Is It?
Much like the name suggests, it's a creamy shadow stick that can be used as an eyeshadow, smokey liner, eye topper or lid base. In fact, if you've got multiple colours, you can use it for all of the above at the same time. Does that sound easier than navigating a palette of 12 different shades?
The formula is easily blendable & applies straight onto the lid so it's easy to control
The creamy texture glides on & doesn't tug on the lids
These shadow sticks are long-wearing & don't crease, flake or fade (they'll last for up to 8 hours)
There are nine shades available including matte neutrals & metallic shimmers
