Want your eyeshadow to last all day?

If you've spent time and effort to make your eyes look good, don't you want them to stay that way throughout the day? Well, don't we all. This is one of the many things clients ask me....."How can I keep my eyeshadow on all day. It seems to wear off by the end of the day?" Alright ladies, I haven't found the miracle, but it's pretty darn close. The first thing you need to invest in is an eye primer. There are many eye primers made by many different brands for everyone to choose from (I've tried most of them). For the past 5 months, I have been using one in particular on myself and my clients. It's Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance primer. This product is AMAZING. When I tell you that your eyeshadow is not going to come off, it's not! Your eyeshadow colors will be more vibrant, cream shadow will not run or crease and you can cry all you want (brides) but this is going to stay on. I've even tried washing this product (with eyeshadow on) with only water and it still doesn't come off. You will need to take off your eye makeup with either eye makeup remover or your face wash.
It comes in a small tube. When you squeeze the product out, you will notice the cream color. It actually goes on clear onto your eyelid. Before applying eyeshadow, allow the cream to dry for a few seconds. Make sure the color you are about to apply is the color you want, because it's not coming off.
I personally wear this everyday I wear eyeshadow.

According to the Too Faced website, here are some of the benefits of Eyeshadow Insurance:

Vitamin E conditions and smoothes eye area

Has anti-aging, antioxidant moisturizers

Can use with powder or cream eye shadows

Anti creasing formula holds shadow in place

Concentrated a rain drop size goes a long way!

You can purchase eye shadow insurance at your local Sephora, Sephora online, your local Ulta, Ulta online or Too Faced cosmetics online
