During the glam process, one thing that I hate the most is called “fallout”. For those that are not familiar, “fallout” happens when the eye shadow falls under the eyes and gives your look a raccoon eye… Lol! yuck!
Anyhow, many of my clients tell me that when trying to create a Smokey Eye, the eye shadow happens to go all over their face from the brush. With that in mind, I have a great little tool that will give you a flawless Smokey Eye, every single time!
You ready? Okay, so let me put you on to my little secret… It’s called Shadow Shields! With Shadow Shields, you can now have amazing Smokey Eyes and a Winged out Liner without any fallout of the eye shadow. So, with Shadow Shields, these little pads go right under your eye and they have an adhesive to hold it down.
Before you use them, first apply a little oil on the adhesive so that it doesn’t hurt while pulling it off, and then you can apply eye shadow anyway and with any color preference that you like. The way the Shadow Shields are shaped; it also helps with making a perfect Winged Tip. Another cool trick is; you can also apply it under the lip to make the perfect bow lip… How amazing is that?!!!!
These eye shadow shields are great for beginners, and also when you need a precise & perfect Smokey Eye. Whenever I am on set I never leave home without them! Shadow Shields is one of the best-kept secrets in the makeup world and are one of the most amazing multitasking tools you could use when applying Eye Shadow.
Listed below are a few suggestions on where to purchase your Shadow Shields. When you have a moment, drop me a note (or send me a video) of you perfecting your Smokey Eye using Shadow Shields.
Till next time.
