A lot of people have asked me what an eyeshadow base was since I started heavily into make up. For me, at first, it was a way to stop my eyeshadow from creasing. It did a very good job of that. It keeps eyeshadow in place for hours after application. Some people need it, some people do not. If you don’t need it, it’s good to note that not only does it keep eyeshadow from creasing, but it also minimizes fallout and brightens the colour on your skin.
Today, I purchased the Electric Palette from Urban Decay. I figured it’d be a great time to show how awesome eyeshadow bases are.
I also threw in pictures of what the shadows look like over an eyeshadow base + NYX milk pencil. It’s a white cream shadow that doesn’t work too well on its own but under powder shadows it works wonders in brightening them up. It’s such a cheap investment and they are absolutely incredible.
It’s pretty obvious from the picture how well it works. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance for my base because its my favourite, but there are loads out there. All eyeshadows were applied the same way with the same brush. The difference is merely what’s underneath the pigment.
