Every Sunday I shall share here a beauty tip that I’ve read or heard about, and leave my comments or thoughts on it. Please feel free to leave your views, too! :)
This week’s tip is courtesy of Lisa Eldridge, which was mentioned in this video of hers (Again, no thanks to Sukie of A Little Bit Of Everything). It’s a good tip to use for when you’ve been crying, or have swollen eyes/eyelids due to allergies for example and need to look presentable for whatever reason :P But that’s apparently not exactly the only thing it’ll do, apparently as I’ve found out, though this is based on my experimentations!
I’ve only recently begun to seriously experiment and play with and use eyeshadows, mainly because I’ve just gotten my hands on the Urban Decay Naked2 palette on Tuesday (I am seriously loving it, by the way), and I find that using a matte shade, in this case the shade Tease from the palette, actually makes your eyes look a little “sunken in” and as a result, for me, my eyes looked bigger with deeper-looking eye sockets! According to Lisa Eldridge in the video, matte eyeshadows recesses the eye area while shimmery eyeshadows would bring it forward, and I do find it’s quite true so I thought I should share this :D
Hmm… maybe I should add a few more matte eyeshadows to my collection to experiment and play around with… and for that I am currently eyeing TheBalm Meet Matt(e) palette! :P
