I had started some posts on my favourite products from each category but stopped doing them when I got really busy. Now I feel like I have got to the point where I am comfortable with my blog and I have the time to write at my own pace which makes it a lot more fun too.
A few years back, I never used to wear eyeshadow bases. Honestly, I didn't even know what they were for- or that they even existed! Now, I am really glad to have discovered them because I have managed to develop my eye looks into something I only ever thought I could see in magazines. I really feel like a good eye shadow base can give a great boost to what would otherwise be considered a dull and boring looking eye shadow.
1. Lime Crime Candy Eyed Eyeshadow Helper
My eye lids, which I may have mentioned before, are oily. I have always found it difficult to keep my eye shadow from creasing. This base is waterproof and it holds on to eyeshadow really well. It prevents it from creasing for an incredibly long time. I use this base when I want a simple or matte eye look because this has no shimmer or colour to it once it is on the lid.
2. Michael Todd Long Wear Creme Shadow in Michael Todd
3. MAC Paintpot in Rubenesque
This product was in a favourite's post a couple of months ago and since then I have been using it on a regular basis. Since it was summer, I wore the bronze and turquoise look often and this base went perfectly with it. It also lasts pretty long, for me maybe not as long as the Limecrime and Michael Todd bases but still long enough. I love this shade and enjoy wearing it.
I have tried the ELF eye primer but although I thought it was good when I first used it, after trying these ones out I realised how much better they are.
Are there any cheaper bases that you can recommend?
