Got the Smoky Eye Clumsies?

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I love smoky eye makeup, but even us professionals have allowed misdirected dark eyeshadow to cascade down to the cheek and under-eye area. This can be a real bummer if you’ve already applied foundation and concealer. We are faced with all bad options to remove the specks of dark pigment and mascara globs ruining our makeup design. Well good news! Along comes a nifty solution by creator/owner Michelle Villanueva, called Shadow Shields. Hailed as The Best New Find of 2009, these light-weight disposable little half-moon pads attach under the eye with a peel off adhesive edge, and form a “tray” to catch falling makeup residue. I love being hands free to apply the shadow while, the adhesive backing stays put under the eye. Yet the adhesive backing is gentle enough to be good for sensitive skin around the eyes.  Shadow Shields are perfect for all makeup applications for the real woman struggling to hold a makeup brush and mirror in her hands, professional bridal makeup, airbrush, special event and prom makeup, plus lash tinting and extensions! Even quick touch ups are hassle free! Like I’ve always said, your makeup sponge is your friend and now so is Shadow Shields! Shadow Shields come in a box of 30 for $9.95 and can be purchased at several makeup sites and stores, including their own site where you can follow a video on its application at shadowshields.com

Wow, that sounds awesome. That always happens to me, little specks of makeup roll down my face and I have to apply more foundation. I'll be sure to invest in those.
