When apply eye shadow on the eyes, we should apply eye shadow base first.Basically eye shadow base has function for strenghtening color of the eye shadow.
Actually, when i started to learn about make up (around 2006), i didn’t know much about it. Until my senior dancer told me if appliying eye shadow base, it would help the eye shadow more colorful, matte finishing and long lasting.Shortly, i used to apply it before appliying the eye shadow.
Here’s my favourite eye shadow base, Opera Moist Water Eye Color. It’s Japan’s cosmetic brand.
Basically it’s multifunction product. Not also as an eye shadow base, but it can be used as glitter for highlighting eye shadow. But, still i only use it for eye shadow base cz when i applied as glitter it didn’t work long last.
I applied a little in my hand
Here’s the result when i spreaded and applied the eye shadow (i used NYX single eye shadow ES111-Irises). The top part is w/o the base and the bottom part is with the base.
Actually the color of NYX single eye shadow is lil bit mix of blue, torquise, green and comes with mix glittering and matte result. Since i applied the base first, it became more matte result and stronger color.
Here’s i put a little on my eye, before i applied the eye shadow. Just put a little and spread in messy way. Don’t spread too hard or it’ll be vanish XD~
Time to apply the eye shadow and tadaaaaa! Electric color which i love so much!
And this was my eyes w/o the base. The color wasn’t strong as the first one
For the comparison both of my eyes
What i love
– Best eye shadow base i’ve ever used! The result is very excellent!
– Actually it has 4 colors : purple (like what i have), baby pink, baby blue and white (before use purple, it’s my first color). Compare both color (purple-white), the result is still same. Basically, it has same tone after apply it on eyes.
– Not really pricey. If i’m not wrong, it only IDR75.000
What i dislike
– The booth of Opera cosmetic was closed now in my city (Yogyakarta) around 2011. But i still can find the booth in Surabaya, East Java. Around August 2012, when i visited Surabaya, the booth was closed too. Now, idk where to buy this product T__T
– After apply, must be quickly put the eye shadow or it’ll be dry very soon.
– Not good as highlight and glitter
Definitely repurchase. But dunno where to buy it T___T
