Put the Base On


When I first started getting into makeup I didn't even know what an eyeshadow base was, and now I can't live without it. The NYX ones are the first ones I ever got, I think it was Lauren Curtis from lurenbeautyy who was using it all the time that kinda convinced me I needed it. It was quite a while ago though and since then I managed to collect a few good eyeshadow bases, but I decided to post about NYX today as they are my firsts. One of the bases is in the colour White and the other in Skin Tone, you can choose which one you prefer depending on the look you're going for. Skin Tone is much easier to work with as it's pretty invisible once applied but White is better if you're going for a 'brighten up my face/eyes' kinda look. Both bases have great staying power, they keep my shadows in place for ages and ages (10h wear I would say). Thanks to them the shadow doesn't crease or fade throughout the day/night, it also looks more pigmented than on its own. I normally use my fingers to apply it, however that can be tricky when my nails are long but then again, that's not such a big issue is it. NYX Eye Shadow Bases are also one of those products where a little goes a long way, I've had mine for way over a year now (fair enough I don't use them every day) and there is still loads of product left in both. I would recommend them especially if you're looking for good quality at the drugstore.


What's your go to eyeshadow base? Have you tried the NYX ones?

  22. I don't usually wear eyeshadow, but when I do, I definitely need to use eyeshadow base! I've heard so much about it, and how no one knows how important it is until you actually start using it. Thanks for the recommendation!! :)
