Where would we be without concealer? The go to product to hide blemishes and illuminate our under eyes but did you know it can also be used to as an eyeshadow primer?

Set it with some translucent powder and you are ready to add eye shadow. Speaking of eye shadow . . .

Who doesn’t love an eyeshadow pallet? All those gorgeous colour stories and pigments but some mornings you just need to get that make up on and you haven’t the time to perfect that cut crease!
