Eye makeup is my thing! I love it! Winged liner, smokey eyes or just neutral – i think they’re all fab! So I go through a lot of different shadow, liner and base brands! I may do a lil eye series… yenno, including looks, how-tos and best and worsts. But, for now we’ll just talk about bases!
I love bases! I think they are genius! Much prefer to them to primers! I also tend to get better results with bases also.
-Seventeen eye crayon – ‘ICED’
This is a really great milky/icy white colour! really beautiful!
Application – 10/10 Just swipe it on, rub it in with your finger and set it with powder!
Staying Power – 9/10 Stays on for about 12 hours but it does start to crease towards the end of the night.
-17 Wild Metallics eyes – Wild nude
Gorgeous soft brown colour to it!
Application – 8/10 I was a lil sketchy about how you use it at first. If you want it for the colour aspect you may be disappointed, as it just gives you a wash of colour, much lighter to how it is in the tub. But, use it as a primer and your shadow won’t budge all day! Dupe for mac paintpots.
Staying Power – 9.5/10 I would say that it stays on most days with out creasing!
Max prolongwear paintpot – Chrome Angel
I LOVE this stuff!
Application – 10/10 As long as you apply a thin thin thin coat and rub it in, you will be fine.
Staying power – Colour pay-off is fab! Stays on all day too.
Soap & Glory eye base – It’s about prime
Cute lil name 🙂
Staying Power – 10/10 Doesn’t budge.
Application – 10/10 Rub in until it’s dry and apply shadow as normal
