Hello Shanus....

 

It seems blue eyeshadow is making a comeback? What I have seen the shades lean toward grey /blue or navy. What color eyes would look good in this shade? I have mostly blue /grey eyes with a touch of green. Grey hair and a light /medium neutral skin.

 

Thankyou ♥️


@Gorgf   Only my opinion but I don't think colored shadow...especially when it's a trend is a great look. If you really need to try it, use a navy eye liner and stay away from the baby blue, bright blue shadows.

@Shanus Yesss, too long! I have one more question for you. I do use Tarte Maracuja eye cream, which I love. I do let it dry for a while before I apply concealer lightly with a brush. Can you tell me why after an hour I always get concealer crease? Tiny little creases. No matter what concealer I use, it always creases. 


@Effie54   Sorry I didn't have a chance to check back and see your question. I'm not familiar w/ that eye cream, but it may be too hydrating/greasy and your concealer doesn't lay down well on top of it. Your eye cream should not take an hour to sink in and dry. Use that one up at night and try a lighter weight eye cream for day. Hate me, but I love Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Eye Base ($$$)...it's a daytime eye cream with primer built in. It smoothes the undereye and preps for concealer. You may also want to try a lighter weight concealer.


@Shanus I think you're right...my eye cream should not be The only eye cream I use. I do have a lightweight one for the day that I occasionally use. And, believe it or not, I have the exact product that you were talking about by Bobbi Brown: the eye base. I bought it at Nordstrom's not long ago. My best friend also purchased it. It has helped her a lot. So yes, I know exactly what you mean. I'll try putting it on with a soft brush as well. Thank you Shanus. 💖

@Effie54   Me again. I don't use a brush w/ eye cream. I take a tiny amount and warm it up between my 2 ring fingers and then tap it on. It helps it blend and not be too much for under most concealers.

Re: BEEN QUITE AWHILE SINCE......

Hi Shanus,
Thank you for taking our questions.
What is your opinion of Chanel eye shadow?
I just ordered 3 from Nordstrom.
I started using Chanel's Stylo Ombre Et Contour as an eyeliner and really like the ease of use and staying power.



I so wish Bobbi Brown would offer the shade Malted as a single eye shadow!  It's one of my all-time favorites.
