One of the first rules of make-up is to make sure you’ve got the perfect base to apply it onto, whether it’s foundation, bronzer, concealer or in this case, eyeshadow – a primer is absolutely essential in order to keep your look flawless. The bareMinerals 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow in Blushing Pink boasts a triple whammy effect, acting as an eyelid primer, brightener and subtle eyeshadow – wowza. The cream eyeshadow will help keep your eyeshadow colour in place, whilst eliminating any escaping particles.

Now that you’ve preened your eyes to peeper-fluttering perfection, it’s time to apply the eyeshadow. Using bareminerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Phenomenon, apply Azure Iris in the centre and outer eyelid. Finish up by buffing Golden Iris into the crease and along the lower lash line.
