Ease of wear, ease of use, ease of repair ... If there is one word that best describes eyeshadows sticks it would probably be effortless. Formulas tend to be creamy, easy to apply, long lasting and easy to wear. One of the biggest advantages of sticks is certainly application and re-application. The type of creamy textures that can be re-applied or enhanced in intensity, are highly adaptable to folds and natural contours of the face. Pigmentation allows them to go from translucent to full pigment.
Nars Shadow Sticks graces a creamy, breathable formula and a great range of colors. The best part is their durability, even in hot, warm conditions. For a simple and quick smokey look, try shade Aigle Noir and Dark Angel make an excellent duo.
Give a quick definition to the eye with the help of darker creamy shade Sapphire. Line the lash line, smoke it out or make it precise. Laura Mercier has great Caviar Stick Eye Colors, that come in some amazing shades. For evenings out, replace the Sapphire shade with a Plum shade.
Everyday make-up look should look fresh, as if you had a good night sleep and as if getting ready for work isn’t a challenge. Cut the morning make-up time by applying the Charlotte Tilbury Color Chameleon jumbo stick in the shade Champagne Diamonds over the entire lid. Blend out with fingers, apply two coats of mascara. Simple and striking.
Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop has genius shades partying and going out. Honey Bunny and Frannie shades are stunning! I suggest that you apply them in the inner corner of the eye and in the middle of the eyelid. Blend them on top of black base or a black cat eye liner, for a more “out there” look.
High-quality, long-lasting matte shade for day-to-day wear is not easy to find, but Nudestix has exactly what we need. Magnetic Matte Eye Color shades are very pigmented, and one layer is quite enough, but if you want to apply in layers, I recommend that you do not wait too long. They are perfect for creating a uniform tone and covering minor irregularities on the eyelids, especially when it comes in shades like Putty and Moon.
