    I was getting irritated by how much you were talking I was l thinking "eugh woman! come one" but honestly when it got down to the end I realised this is the most thorough video I have seen and the first time I have gotten my eyeshadow down properly. Thank you so much for your video and proper explanation. I have gotten rid of certain eyeshadow colours in the past cause it kept looking like someone punched me in the eye it turns out I just did all the don'ts in perfect order. I also realised that I need to get more brushes because I only have two. Once again, thank you!

    • Elena Martin
      Elena Martin 13 days ago +1

      Egge Oke I find it being a preference. I never set my primer/concealer. I like to have slightly tacky base for my eyeshadows to stick and look more vibrant. I actually like her "bad" side's vibrancy and pigmentation better, that's because she had natural oils on skin for the shadow to stick. Again, preference, if you like a more subtle look then her advice is great. 👍😉

    Hello people who know more then I do about makeup, does it have to be a eye primer or can you use a normal primer?

    • Julie Bach
      Julie Bach Month ago +1

      Well normal face primer actually smoothes your skin and sort of prolongs the wear of your face makeup whereas eye primer protects your eyes and stops your eyeshadow from sliding around and creasing - so if you put face primer on your eyes, it might cause your shadows to crease more cause your eyelids become "smoother". So eye primer works more as a "glue" to keep your eyeshadow in place, but I think a lot of people use concealer instead of eye primer - my eyes are just a little sensitive so I feel like the eye primer protects them a lot more :))
