Tricks For Perfect Eye Makeup: Shadow Shields

Tricks For Perfect Eye Makeup: Shadow Shields

Once upon a time in a magical place where unicorns make rainbows, Michelle Villanueva was hard at work coming up with an invention that would revolutionize the makeup industry. As the sole founder and CEO of this OMG-it-makes-so-much-sense-how-did-I-not-think-of-that?! product, she found a way for even the best makeup artists to save time in the creation of their look.

Michelle came up with SHADOW SHIELDS.



Shadow Shields do exactly what the name implies – they shield your face from getting fallout all over the lower lid/lash line area. If you are new to the world of makeup, I would suggest running to your nearest Sephora or wherever they are sold (check the site above to verify locations) and stock pile them like they were gallons of water and you were preparing a fallout shelter.

Even the most seasoned of artists turn to these, using them in the creation of their fancy smoky eye at a variety of celebrity-infested events. Three small pieces of adhesive stand between you and the perfect eye makeup. Pull off the end pieces or go ahead and take all three off for a little extra staying power. This works so much better than a piece of tape or wasting beauty powder to protect you from fallout. I like to apply them, do my makeup, add my eyeliner, and then dispose of them – all the while creating the sharpest corners of my liner EVER!

NOTE: When you apply the product under your lower lash line, try to make it as close to the lash as possible. It will feel awkward at first, but before the first eye is complete, you will have forgotten they are there.

This saves time when you have to knock out 10 smokey eye looks and have very little time before a big event. This even works perfectly if you are a n00b, trying to figure out the ins and out of the makeup world, giving you the confidence you need to look amazing. I don’t know how I ever survived without them.
