Here’s another reason why everyone should have their dose of mineral makeup eyeshadows – they blend in better!
I’ve been conducting lessons lately on how to apply traditional makeup and mineral makeup on girls who want to look more polished and beautiful in the office, and I’ve made them try two kinds of makeup – starting with traditional makeup, and removing it, and going home with their face made up using mineral makeup.
When it came to using pressed eyeshadows, my students had a hard time blending, or their efforts were really seen on trying to blend the shadows to form a gradient. When it came to using mineral eyeshadows, the eyeshadow just blended in a snap. Seriously. Maybe it’s the “loose mineral” form that makes it scatter on the eyelids instantly, that made blending a breeze.
Even with crease colors and colors on the outer v, mineral eyeshadows were just a dream. Now, if mineral makeup companies *ahem, request!* would make more less shimmery shadows and get us more satin finish eyeshadows, perhaps we can make the total switch to mineral eyeshadows for all kinds of eye looks!
And of course, not to forget, always apply a primer ( Artdeco eye primer, MAC Prep n Prime, or Urban Decay Primer Poton ) before applying mineral eyeshadows. It makes the color of the mineral eyeshadow really pop and vibrant!
