I was planning on doing a little eye makeup tutorial here sometime soon (I've never done a video blog before, but I'm considering trying for you guys... you'd have to just ignore my awkwardness), but I've got to share something now that just can't wait.
I recently bought this Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Set:
And can I just tell you guys... I'm totally obsessed. I used to have trouble with my eyeshadow wearing off by the end of the workday. But this stuff is like magic. Like super-duper, makeup fairy-esque magic. You put it on under your eyeshadow, and it keeps it looking fresh all darned day. Here's a picture of my eyeshadow at 7:45 PM...
(Please ignore my "I'm taking a self-portrait and can't decide whether I want to smile or not, so I'll do this mysterious thing with my mouth so that no one will be able to figure me out" look. It's not my best. Also, you should know that I did not touch up any of my makeup, so I'm looking pretty Edward Cullen-ish.)
... which I applied at 7:00 AM.
Magic, I tell you.
I got the sample pack because I couldn't figure out which color to try (and because it's on sale - win!), and I love them all. But my favorite is the gold-ish Greed, which I use as my base eyeshadow, so I only have to apply whatever color I want to use in the crease.
Anyway, this is definitely not a paid endorsement - just wanted to pass on this glorious knowledge to any other eyeshadow enthusiasts out there. :)
(Also, I feel like it's important that I tell someone that I've been using the Instagram app for a few months now and just now realized that I've been sharing all the pictures I edited with my "followers." Good thing I kept it clean! ;))
