When I asked about smoky eye techniques, he gave me a technique for crease-free, waterproof, water-resistant, and super fool-proof technique for smoky eyes. He mixes their cream eyeshadow with a bit of Laura Mercier caviar (not the one you eat, but a gel/cake eyeliner in an intense, matte finish) and this forms a creamy base that you can use for a really intense smoky eye. He also introduced me to the eye basics, which look like lipglosses at first but are actually eye primers/eyeshadow bases to hold eyeshadow.
They come in 3 colors. The one on the left is has a peach tone, the middle blue and the right one a yellow and universal skintone color. The best, however, is the one on the right but since they ran out of stocks, I settled for the next best thing, which was the blue one, named eyebright.
The blue hue counteracts the redness on the eyes and those veins and gives the appearance of brighter eyes, hence the name Eyebright. It's also a base that's quite light so eyeshadow color is
more prominent. I also like the texture too, which wasn't too oily for me. The Laura Mercier technique of applying eyeshadow is actually different. For one, they don't put foundation or powder on the lids, since the lids can be oily so they put the eye base instead, and since the eye base is tinted, it counteracts whatever redness or discoloration there is on the lids.
Here's when I put it to the test, so I applied little amount on the back of my hand and blended it. If you see there, it's not really blue but a little bright color.
Then I sprayed water
Here's another test on counter where my hand was literally soaking wet
I think I would be wearing smoky eyes tonight. :)
