  • i have a problem with eyeshadow getting stuck in the creases of my eyelids, no matter how good the brand is. my best friend started selling mary kay, and i asked the rep lady about it. she recommended an eyelid primer. so i bought it, and it really does work! i can't even get the eyeshadow off sometimes! the shadow i use the most is Rimmel, and i never wear any eyeshadow without that primer!

  • Try Revlon Colorstay, that is all that I use. They usually come in a palette that has four colors, from dark to light that compliments and contrasts. I buy them at Target or check Walgreen's, you can often get them 2 for 1. Usually about $6.

  • I also use MK eye primer and I love their eye shadows. The color is what you see is what you get.

  • Honestly, I buy the cheap eyeshadow, but first I put moisturizer on my eyes, then I layer some white or cream eyeshadow, then I put on whatever color I'm going to use. I don't usually have problems with it fading or coming off.

  • I really like the Mark and Mineral eyeshadows by Avon. They stay put really well. An added trick is to get the Magix Face perfecter primer and put a little on your eyelid too! Your eyeshadow, even the cream kind, will stay put all day! You can try them at www.youravon.com/dhullum use coupon code fsany for free shipping!

  • ok so I know I previously posted that I always use maybelline, but today I bought some eyeshadow from Sephora and its awesome. A little on the expensive side though. But check it out in the mall, they have alot of colors to choose from. I am going to a military ball so I was shopping around too. They had a little billboard of different women wearing their eye shadow and one was called california dreams, and so I asked the lady which color it was and it was actually three diff shadows, but they are all three really great colors. But again, a little pricey.
