I just went to a wedding last weekend, and we had a girly ‘ol time doing each other’s makeup. I had a epiphanic moment when I realized there’s a product that I kept using on everyone (and myself) that I can’t do without: Laura Mercier’s Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Platinum, $22.
It’s a perfect shimmery base for parties that comes on bright and not holds onto any shadow you use on top of it, it never creases. I love that it’s a neutral beige color that i can layer on. You would think since it’s a cream that it would be greasy, but it sets in beautifully and won’t budge. I’ve used drugstore brands that just don’t compare, and this lasts a while since I don’t use it every day. Add just a touch to your tear ducts to really open up your eyes.
For something a little more inexpensive that I’ve heard works phenomenally well, there’s also MAC Paints for $16.50 that won’t crease even if you tried. Try it in Base Light if you like a gold shimmer, or Bare Canvas for something more neutral and matte.
