Whether you are preparing for a long day of work or getting ready to attend a black-tie event, making sure your eye makeup lasts can be of the utmost importance. However, with the seemingly endless amount of products on the market, how can you easily select the best ones that will help your eyeshadow stay-put?
Sometimes, it really may pay to look toward the stars for such answers - Hollywood stars, that is. To help Katie Holmes get ready for a show during New York Fashion Week, her makeup artist wanted to ensure that her face remained flawless throughout the entire event.
"I prepped her lids with an eye primer in a light/medium shade before applying a blend of shimmery taupe and deep gray shadow," Mai Quynh told InStyle.com, adding that she finished the look with two coats of black mascara.
Eye primer is a great product for women who want to make their makeup last, as it helps to keep pigments from running, fading and creasing on the lid.
Ladies may also want to don an acrylic-based tubing mascara, which coats each lash individually, and will not flake, smudge or smear.
