Want an easy solution to carrying around eyeshadows that can break in your purse or suitcase?
Try shading with some soft and blendable eyeliners. And better still, they set into a
crease proof,  waterproof finish.   The look created on this drawing uses four eyeliners; start with Cleopatra Ultimate Eyeliner (gold) on entire lid, and blend in a bit of Lilac Whisper pencil.  Line under entire eye from where lashes begin on inner corner to outside with Cleopatra Ultimate Eyeliner and blend slightly with finger. Use Lilac Whisper pencil on inner V area of eye and on watermark across entire lower lid. Use Libido Ultimate Eyeliner (Purple) on upper lash line as close to lashes as possible and on outer half of lower lash line as close into lashes as possible. Use Mythology Ultimate Eyeliner in bronze in the crease of eye and blend thoroughly with finger.
It’s as simple as that to get this beautiful and dramatic look in a few minutes!

Choosing the Right Concealer for your Skin Type and Problems

Whether con2your dark circles and under eye bags are from heredity or lack of sleep and exposure to the elements, there is a concealer that is right for you! New formulas have the added benefit of treating dark circles and wrinkles while greatly improving the appearance of these culprits at the same time.
Which formula to choose depends on your specific problem, skin texture and tone.
For more mature, aging skin that has lines and darkness, choose a formula that has a
thinner consistency, blends easily, and will not set in the creases. I have found that
the two best concealers for this purpose are the Mineral Illuminating Concealer and
the Dual Action Concealer. Both of these formulas have light reflecting properties to
immediately improve appearance as well as treatments for dark circles and wrinkles. Both
formulas come in three shades. Pick a shade very close but just a tad lighter than your
skin tone. Choosing a concealer that is too light can give the person a “reverse raccoon”
effect, leaving them with rings that are too light.
If you are younger with fine lines and a lot of darkness, opt for the Mineral Concealer Stick,
which has light reflecting minerals and line filling corrective microspheres for fine lines.
Our under eye concealer and lid primer is for those that wish an easy fix for darkness on the
top and lower lid. Simply apply a think coat all over eyelid before shadow application and
extend the application alongside nose and in tear drop area to blot our under eye darkness.
If skin is dry, tap a bit of Firming Eye Serum or DMAE Firming Fluid over concealer in daytime
and on clean, dry skin at night before bed.
