Saturday Wearable Dramatic EOTD / FOTD

I really am not loving the Revlon Whipped Creme Foundation! It goes on cakey no matter what primer or application method I use. Maybe I should try it without a primer?...

I used the technique my MAC MUA Malika showed me when she did my makeup a few months ago, using a darker shadow on the outer AND inner corner with a lighter shade in the centre of the lid. Darkening the eyes inner corner really adds drama to the eye and I really enjoy it for a change, whether it's using shadow or lining all the way in and down around with liner.

What's your look when you go out of your comfort zone?

  1. I really love your eyeshadow! Great idea using the darker colour on the inner and outer corner!!

  2. Here's how I make the colour stay work for me. First I use Mac oil control lotion as my moisterizer, then prime with Revlon photoready primer, then I dab my real techniques buffing brush into the product so there's a small amount on the brush, dot around my face and buff in. I like you were having issues with caking, it seems that my moisturizers were the issue, I find using one that 'dried matte" so to speak works wonders. And the oil control lotion is actually a great one to try if you haven't already

  3. I don't use primer under the whipped foundation and it doesn't cake, I use the real techniques buffing brush to apply. I do however use neutrogena' s ultrasheer dry touch sunblock underneath, which dries matte, almost like light powder.

  4. I agree, the whipped foundation is trickey & cakey. Makes my wrinkles more noticeable! However, the first time I applied it, I actually liked the finish & coverage... Don't know what went wrong?! I LOVE Laura Mercier creme smooth foundation :)
