How To Do Glossy Lids

File this makeup trend under something that shouldn’t work, but it does. Meet the glossy lid. Here’s what I find confusing: I’ve only known since eye makeup 101 that you always apply eyeshadow primer to prevent… exactly what I’m wearing now… glossy lids.

5 Best Eyeshadow Palettes Worth The Splurge

What’s in a good eyeshadow palette? For me, it’s about three things: pigment, application and staying power. I have fair skin and hazel eyes so I’m drawn to purple, brown and green hues. I’m also no expert when it comes to application so I heavily rely on quick tutorials or beauty guides—otherwise that palette collects dust in the cabinet under my sink. I’m usually getting dolled up for work when I know I’m going from desk to drinks so staying power is a must too.
