If you follow my instagram account (and if not, why not? You can find it here) you’ll notice that I’ve been posting a daily picture of my eye makeup, with a description of the shadows, liners and mascaras that I’ve used. What I never mention are these two products, without which my eyemakeup is incomplete.
First off, if I’ve learned anything from beauty blogging over the years, it’s that an eye-shadow primer is absolutely essential, and, after years of testing practically all of the ones on the market, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is the one I return to again and again and again. If you suffer from wandering shadow, or greasy eyelids, or shadow that just disappears after an” hour or two, then primer will help. UDPP is a rather “grabby” primer that can sometimes be difficult to blend over, but I deal with that by adding a layer of flesh coloured shadow over the top of it first, then using any darker colours over the top, you still get a good, bright, longlasting look, but it’s much easier to blend shades over the top. I’m looking forward to trying their new “anti-ageing” primer when that is released.
And to finish off any look, it’s imperative to have groomed eyebrows, and an eyebrow gel can help hugely. My own eyebrows (even though tattooed underneath), would take over my entire face if I didn’t keep them under control, so I brush through a little of this lightly-coloured gel through to tame them a little, and keep them in place for the day.
The Eyeko brow-gel has a nice little brush (which could, in all honesty, be a bit longer), and has a lightly coloured gel, which would be suitable for most shades of brows, except maybe for very red ones. It’s nice, and keeps brows in place all day. I’m a little o_0 about the price, to be honest, as I think £18 for a brow gel is a bit on the high side (frankly, you could use hair gel just as well), but it’s a good product if you want your brows to provide the perfect frame for your eyes.
