Quick Tip: Dry-Wet Eyeshadow

by Sarah

Did you know…you can use your eyeshadows dry or wet!  Spray a pump of either water or preferably a binding solution such as MAC Fix+ to your eyeshadow brush.  Dab into your eyeshadow which will help dissolve the shadow into a creamy consistency. Apply as you would a cream based eyeshadow, building the color as you go.

Eyeshadows have a softer and more transparent look when dry, so you can intensify the color and increase the staying power by wetting it ;)
