Solution: Shadow Shields! http://www.shadowshields.com/
You HAVE to check this out. It's a self-adhesive pad perfectly shaped to fit right underneath the eye. It "shields" all that excess makeup that falls under your eye making you look like you haven't slept in a decade!
Instead of doing your eye makeup first, or having to use a makeup remover towelette to clean off excess shadow, prevent it from happening in the first place. What's so cool about Shadow Shields is you can use them in a few different ways depending on the look you want. If you want dramatic lower lashes, put the Shadow Shields right underneath the lashes so it picks up excess mascara. If you are using glitter, only take off the adhesive off the very top of the Shadow Shields so it catches excess glitter that may fall all over the face. You can also take the adhesive off the entire Shadow Shield if you know the shadow won't fall all over the face like I did below:
(If you use an under-eye concealer, apply after taking Shadow Shield off or else it will come off right with it.)
I was introduced to this company at The Makeup Show. I met Michelle Villanueva, make up artist, who is the creator behind this ingenious idea. Shadow Shields were even seen on the Today Show's, "Best in Beauty" segment. Jackie Gomez (Beyonce and Solange Knowles make up artist) said, "Top Product of 2009! Truly Innovative!!"
Shadow Shields are currently available for $9.99/30 shields at www.beauty.com, www.dermstore.com and www.shadowshields.com. They're also available at Sephora Stores.
