Lucky for you, the makeup tricks we learned backstage at the runway shows can easily assist in the makings of your next Taylor Swift , Handmaid’s Tale or Wonder Woman costume.
Take, for example, liquid eye shadow, the trendy product every beauty brand from Dior to Stilato e.l.f. Cosmetics is touting. Before NYFW, we would apply the product, diffuse it out with a blending brush, only to see pigment entirely fade. Or, it would either get all over the place or not blend at all.

Once you glide the liquid shadow across your lid, let it dry a bit before building on more. When blending, use a small brush provided in eye shadow compacts (you know, the ones you never use)—rather than a blending or shadow brush, which can be too large and disruptive, Sarah advised. The compact brush is small and able to get into the lid crease and eye corners without lifting up pigment.
