When I was younger I was never a huge fan of makeup, but as I aged I noticed things like foundation, face creams, and mascara really make a difference. In high school the eye shadow of choice among my fellow females was a metallic type silver. I remember ALWAYS wearing this eye shadow and so did all of my friends. It was just the thing to do back then. It looked something like this.
Probably not as fancy looking though. The trend didn’t last long after high school. As I got older I was more into natural shades or colors that would make my eyes pop. After I started watching What Not to Wear on TLC is when I started using shimmery eye shadow again. Only this time I used it to highlight underneath my brow and in the tear duct of my eye. They always recommend this on the show and I figured hey why not. After all, anything that may make this tired momma look more awake I am all for.
Recently, I tried out BA STAR‘s Stardust Mineral Eye shadow in the diamond shade. My first thought was “Yes, another highlighter shadow!”. This mineral eye shadow is a loose powder so a little goes along way. I was a little weary of putting it on my tear duct area in fear of it irritating my contacts. Afterall, I feel like ripping my eyeball out if something even comes close to my eyes because I can anticipate the pain (glasses are so much easier!). No such problem though. The eye shadow stayed in place thanks to the included shadow base. That stuff glues everything down nicely.
What is your favorite eye shadow color? What colors make your eyes pop? Do you have a favorite brand of eye shadow?
