From my makeup rut, that is. It’s not so much a rut as it is the fact that I have no time for makeup these mornings. So what to do when times like these strike? My answer is my HG cream shadow, Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Shadowcreme in Antique Gold. I love this stuff so much. I’ve had it for about a year, and it’s never dried out on me. I do a sheer wash on each lid over the lid up to the crease, and then curl lashes+mascara.
Speaking of which, tell me your favorite mascaras! I’m looking for a new one that holds a curl well. Preferably something that doesn’t smudge, as mascaras smudge easily on me. It’d also be nice if it didn’t clump, as I have little patience for combing my lashes.
Ehem. Back on track. Product shot!
This holds up well without primer underneath. Of course, it helps that I only apply a thin layer, and even if it creases, it’s not too noticeable because of the color. It opens up my eyes, and is perfect for lazy days. Plus it’s just so easy. I don’t need a brush, in fact, I think that would only make things harder. I just swirl my ring finger in it, swipe, and go.
My swatch doesn’t even capture the gorgeousness of this color. In direct sunlight, it becomes sparkly and even prettier. Alas, the sun always hides when I bring out my camera.
Do you guys have any favorite cream shadows?
