How to prep eyelids: Foundation & Translucent Powder

Prepping the eyelids is an essential step before applying eye make-up. Oil on the eyelids causes eye make-up creasing. Creating a matte canvas allows eyeshadow and other eye make-up to adhere properly. There are many procedures and products you can use to prep your eyelids. Using foundation and translucent powder is one method.

These are the products that I use, you can choose your own products of course.


Foundation
Diorskin Forever Foundation by 'Dior'
Translucent Powder
Mineral Translucent Powder in Natural by 'Nude by Nature'

STEP 1 - APPLY FOUNDATION
Diorskin Forever in shade 040

Using your ring finger, lightly dab the foundation over your entire lid.


According to acclaimed make-up artist Rae Morris, applying foundation on the eyelids will neutralise the tones on your lids and create the perfect canvas for your eye make-up.


STEP 2 - APPLY TRANSLUCENT POWDER

Use a soft brush to apply translucent powder over your lids. You can also use a sponge applicator, a powder puff or even a cotton ball or pad.

Mineral Veil -  Nude by Nature

Dab the powder lightly over the eyelid.


Ensure to sweep the powder over your entire lid to remove the oiliness.




Following these easy steps ensures a matte eyelid/canvas that's ready for you to create your desired eye look!


Follow Rae Morris's easy step by step guide on eyelid preparation. Her book 'Beautiful Eyes: The Ultimate Eye Make-up Guide' is a fabulous resource.


Until next time.
Be kind to yourself,
