High shine eyelids have become something of a staple on fresh-faced runway looks, but the idea of slicking Eight Hour Cream on my own eyes has always seemed like a messy proposition.
Backstage at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Dick Page, Creative Director of Shiseido the Makeup and lead artist, offered a solution:
"The problem with the gloss on the eyes sometimes, is if you use something that's really greasy-greasy, that's really horrible. Use something that's glycerin or silicone based, that has a little sheen to it. Or use a shiny shadow that's super finely milled, the same color as your skin tone and then just pinch it between your fingers with a little gloss, and just rub that in. It's much more stable."
