Achieving Intense Color

Eyeshadow palettes are usually much more of an investment piece than a new shade of lipstick or a seasonal blush.  As vibrant as the colors may appear in the casing, and as hyped as the product may have been online, we all know the tragedy of finding out that the shades are dull once applied.  Back in Facial Sprays 101 we looked at the benefits of the three main types of facial sprays, and I listed Evian Facial Spray as my favorite ‘Refresher.’  Beyond being a must-have travel companion, Evian Facial Spray can also help you achieve intense color and maximize your eyeshadow palette potential.

I confess that I’m not one to wear bold colors on my eyelid.  Aside from deep purple I usually stick to coppers and neutrals, although I do love a bright pop under the eye.  Evian Facial Spray helps even muted tones reach their full potential, and I always mist my brush before applying any loose pigment.  Below you can see the before & after of applying Urban Decay ‘Madness’ from the Vice 2 Palette with a dry brush on the left, and with a brush misted with Evian Facial Spray on the right on both my eyes and my arm.

To intensify eye color

Spray your brush with Evian Facial Spray before applying colorful or metallic eyeshadow to create intense, bold colors that don’t look chalky.

To blend foundation

Before blending bronzer with foundation, wet a Beauty Blender or other blending tool with Evian Spray to create an airbrushed, flawless look. You can also use evian® Facial Spray to blend foundation along the jawline and neck to eliminate unwanted foundation lines.  I usually moisten my Beauty Blender with warm water then refresh it with Evian to prevent it from drying out while I work.

To set foundation or eyeshadow

After applying foundation and/or powder, lightly mist skin with Evian Facial Spray in a circular motion to set foundation and/or powder for a more natural look.  The oxidization will prevent any cake-face.

To revive color and refresh color

Using Evian Facial Spray any time during the day can instantly revive color to help makeup look fresh and vibrant even hours after makeup was applied. For best results, lightly mist skin in a circular motion. Can be kept in the office, gym bag, or purse to freshen up makeup after work, before a party, or any time you need a quick touch up.

For a long night out I still recommend following up with a dedicated setting spray, but Evian remains one of the most successful multi-tasking tools in my beauty arsenal.  So, how do you wear intense color?

P.S.: I’m getting my roots touched up this week, I promise!
