Working with an Eyeshadow Pencil

Many of our clients have a hard time understanding eye shadow pens. And after years of relying on normal eyeshadows it’s easy to understand. There is no real mystery in using them. They are this magic sticks that apply the eye shadow in cream format, allowing some time for you to blend it, until it sets and doesn’t move.

The gals at Beauty Department put together a nice tutorial as to where the placement of the shadow should be, and techniques on how to get the shadow blended on your lid. Click here and check it out!

Jane Iredale has these beautiful shadow sticks called Mystikols. They are not exactly creamy in texture. They are a mix of powder + cream. They stay on your lids, but you can move them around a bit as well. Let us know whether you’d like to see the same technique on The Beauty Department’s blog post using our Mystikols.
