Eyeshadow – Beauty or Beastly?

I am faithful to my black eyeliner and black kohl pencil and as my friends will testify, I never leave home without it. The trouble is, I always have the same look. I’ve tried different coloured kohl pencils and dabbled with eyeshadow – nothing major- just pink and gold! I hope for a look of radiance and beauty but in truth, the look is closer in resemblance to Barbie; colourful and sparkly. What’s more, neither eyeshadow or coloured kohl pencil lasts until the end of my evening. By the time I return home, I look more like Cinderella and just like my makeup, all hope of being the fairest of them all has faded too!

Here’s a blog that explains where I’ve been going wrong. I need to use a primer first, something I thought was only meant for walls. That way, I create a base for my eyeshadow that will help it to stay in place.

So have I been converted? I don’t think so. I love the finished look of the peacock eye (post 3) featured in the attached blog.  But somehow I’m not convinced that it’s a look that compliments every eye colour. But if unlike me you are brave enough to wear bold colours, I think the tips on how to apply your eyeshadow correctly are fantastic and the final look is flawless!

The one tip I have taken up is applying kohl pencil or eyeliner on my waterline rather than on the inner rim of my eye. The waterline is apparently just where your lower lash meets your eye rim. My kohl now has the ability to stay put the entire day and doesn’t need reapplying. However, I have to avoid any situation that has the potential for tears otherwise Panda eyes big time it is.

About Sneha

I am a pharmacist and homeopath and have advised people for many years on issues to do with health, weight and well being. My role has involved navigating my way through the burdensome and sometimes conflicting volume of information and advice from health experts about with what constitutes a healthy diet, what foods to avoid if you want to lose weight and the importance of exercise in weight control and maintaining health. Despite all this information being available, obesity in the UK continues to rise. Knowledge is one thing, but putting it into practice is another! Having lost 3 stones since the birth of my second child, people have been asking me how I did it. That's what has inspired me to write this blog and share my experiences in the hope that it inspires others to find their own path to achieving their health and beauty goals!
