Excellent! I think Marie is a genius! I applied silica balls to my kids and left them alone for a few minutes. Then returned and applied some eye liner, then applied some more balls on top. It’s been about one hour, and no eye line brow bone!
I gave my sister all my fun colours for eye liners, so I need to make some more. I’m going to add in a smidgen of balls per recipe to see how that goes. I kind of don’t want to sit there every day opening nad closing containers. I want to see if adding the balls to the recipe will work.February 3, 2017 at 9:22 pm #19664
That sounds brilliant. I added my base to my eye primer so I can get it ready and work it. Just got my ELF eyeliner brush today. Guess what I’m making.February 4, 2017 at 10:35 am #19685
Twin, how did this go?? Did you make it like Barb suggested, with a little extra amount of silica balls to give it staying power? Show us please!🙂February 4, 2017 at 2:14 pm #19697
Working on it. My problem is…gel or the cream? This is a tough choice with sensitive eyes. I’m thinking gel since it means it dries. I’ll show soon.
This is what happens when you get distracted by pressing foundation into your empty compact. 😂February 4, 2017 at 2:29 pm #19703
Oh! You’re doing pressed powders?!? I need to learn this skill! I have to take powder with me in the purse to de-shine the nose and cheeks.
Gel just sounds nice and light on the eyes. Good choice!February 4, 2017 at 2:45 pm #19708
Pressed powder is pretty easy. Marie goes over it in her book. So, since my foundation powder compact was empty. I decided it was time to reuse it. That way it makes it easier to layer my foundation with my brush and blender sponge.April 3, 2017 at 10:31 am #21514bellbottomParticipant
first: if your eyelids are hooded, EVERYTHING will transfer to your brow bone. EVERYTHING. in more or less amounts, but yes. EVERYTHING. i have hooded eyelids which means there are certain styles of makeup that simply look like crap because my lids are hooded. so first, let go of the expectation of an eye product that will *never* transfer. no matter how expensive/fancy/high tech it is, IT WILL TRANSFER because of your eyes. and that’s ok. it’s a pain the butt, but whatever. accept your body or get plastic surgery (my oh my how often do i wish i had the $$ and courage to change my eyelids).
i find that using an eye primer AND some kind of powder (eyeshadow, powder etc) BEFORE and AFTER applying eyeliner helps. i don’t have silica available to purchase where i live, so just regular face powder works. if it is a hot day, IT WILL STILL TRANSFER. eyelids get oily, browbones get sweaty, makeup gets soft and then everything melts together and VOILA! a second eyeliner on your browbone.
not trying to discourage anyone. 🙂 but unless your eyelids are not hooded AT ALL (very rare – most people’s lids are at least a little hooded) and your eyeballs are deeply set, you will have two eyelines on your face 🙂April 4, 2017 at 6:51 am #21552
I have deep set eyes and my eye liner always transfers to the crease of my eye. I usually don’t wear eyeshadow, so it looks kind of funky, but other than wiping it off with a Kleenex or q-tip, it’s there until I wash my face at night. So, I get what you’re saying, bellbottom!May 2, 2018 at 4:46 pm #26055genevievechlParticipant
Has anyone tried making Plum Purple in the creamy eyeliner base? I tried and I don’t know if it’s maybe because I used D&C Red Lake No. 7 instead of carmine, but it came out quite red when I applied it. Like, vampire status. Marie had mentioned that D&C Red Lake No. 7 is a cheaper alternative that can be substituted in most cases. So I don’t know if maybe I just didn’t blend it well enough so that the reds overpowered the blue and prevented it from showing through or… who knows? Anyone experience this?November 8, 2018 at 8:10 am #27694
It sounds like the lake dye is more potent than the carmine. I’d add more blue next time.
