For all users that are concerned over the glitter getting all over your face, here's a solution that you may want to consider. Use Too faced glitter glue eyeshadow primer ($18.00) before you apply any glittery eyeshadow. It holds the shadow really well and glitter does not get over all your face. I also apply eye makeup before applying any foundation or anything on my face so in case of any spills, I just use a makeup towelette to wipe it all off. I love the Walgreen's brand makeup towelettes for this purpose.

1. Use a good primer so the shadow will have something to stick to.
2. apply an excess of translucent powder to your lower lids/cheeks. This way you can take a face brush and brush off excess fallout. You may not need to do this if you..
3. pick a quality eyeshadow brush, swipe it through the eyeshadow and tap the excess off, and apply to your lids. Repeat this over and over, building color slowly. This means you have a better chance of allowing the product to grab on to your lids.

Use primer. Always tap your brush off after getting the shadow on it to get access product off before applying to the eyelid. Also, try to put a piece of tissue under your eye to catch any shadow that falls off.

Hi,

There's a lot of things you can do. The Sephora consultants can help you pick the right brand of products to make end your glitter fallout.

You should have a good primer. There are a variety of excellent primers which help contain fallout. Which you buy depends on the condition of your lids.

Sephora makes a great brush for glittery product application. This might be all you need to ensure that the product gets only to your lids and stays there.

Some of the setting mists designed for eye make up will help any product stay in place.

I've used that shade and haven't had a problem with it. You might just need a good brush and a good primer.

Hope this helps.

Silly as this sounds, the single most effective thing I've found is Scotch tape afterwards. It won't really mess with the rest of your makeup, but it will get stray glitter and pigment up from around your eyes. It doesn't hurt, and its cheap!

I know a lot of people who will put a kleenex or piece of toilet paper directly underneath the bottom of their eye while applying shadow and especially glittery ones. This way the excess shadow that falls will land on the tissue and not your cheek. Also, for after the fact advise. When i use glitter products of my eyes, afterward I take a piece of normal scotch tape and stick it to my cheeks and under my eyes in the same way you would use a lint brush/tape to pick up particles from your clothes and it works great to catch all those fallen sparkles.

Before applying the shade try applying the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Its a great base, probably the best one on the market and does a great job at sticking the shade onto your lid. A couple sparkles might still manage to find their way onto your face but you can try a good quality fan brush to sweep them right off.

there are several things you can do. I like to use a squat brush that has short bristles which makes it easier to control the formula of this shadow, which, while gorgeous, can be pretty tricky to use. if you aren't using an eyeshadow base, you could try Urban Decay's excellent Eyeshadow Primer Potion. you only need a tiny bit- I use my finger to apply it instead of the doe's foot applicator. experiment and see how much primer works best for you. then, press the brush fairly firmly into the shadow- don't tap or wipe the brush against the shadow- and then blow or shake off the excess. this will help the brush hold its load of shadow so it will go where you apply it as opposed to on your cheeks. again, when applying, press the shadow in- don't wipe- and it will stay put more readily. you could also LIGHTLY moisten your brush, and then tap it into the product. the shadow particles will be more controllable when they are damp. make sure to stroke the area you've applied shadow to [gently] with a dry finger after the shadow sets to make sure you haven't applied too much- easy to do when eyeshadow is dampened. also, applying less shadow in more layers can work too.
another trick I use is to apply a lot of loose powder to my under-eye and cheek area so if shadow does fall there, I can just whisk it away. some people do not like this approach, but as I like a more matte finish, I find this technique works very well. be sure to get yourself a good brush. I would try Sephora Brand Professional Smudge Brush #14. it's going to be perfect for keeping your shadow 'in control.' I hope this helped!

Try using a pressed powder underneath your eye area to make for easier clean-up, or if you're lazy like me, just use a kleenex or a paper towel and hold it just under your eye as you apply the eyeshadow. Another technique I found that worked pretty well was applying the eyeshadow with my head tilted sideways a little bit - the eyeshadow will fall on the floor or counter rather than under your eye.

answer 12
First thing to do is apply a base. You need to have something for the eyeshaodw to stick to or it's going to fall all over. I recomend the Primer Potion from UD. It has a slightly tacky feel to grab a hold of the shadow, but anyother base will work too. (Some good ones are, Two Faced Shadow Insurance, and Benefit Lemon-aid)
Then take a flat brush. Apply the shadow and tap any extra off. Then pat the shadow on your lid. DONT SWIP! if you swip the color is going to fly off the brush and fal all over your face.
Then if you need to blend then take a fluffier brush and smooth out the hard lines, not the entire lid.
Also, if it keeps doing this, do your eye makeup first, clean the area where it fell with makeup remover, then do your foundation.
Hope that helps!

A good trick is to do your eyeshadow first. I always tend to do my eyeshadow first, just in case it falls down to the cheeks and I don't have to redo my whole face! If it does, just use a damp rag or makeup remover to get it off. If you're touching up your shadow, simply put a tissue or piece of paper under your eyes to catch the scraps!

I've actually had a similar problem, and from what I've seen and heard there are a couple different options. I've heard that putting on eyemakeup before face makeup will allow you to remove the excess without messing up foundation. I don't follow this. Instead, I just hold a folded piece of tissue paper right under my eye with the hand that isn't applying the eyeshadow. It works pretty well.

Try wetting your brush just a bit. That should help keep the shadow on your brush and exactly where you want to put it. Then kind of pat it on your lids rather than swiping it.

Put a heavy helping of transluscent loose powder right under your eyes before you apply the shadow. When you put the shadow on your brush, tap it on the edge of the sink to remove the particles that will fall off easily. Once you have your shadow on perfectly. Use a brush or tissue to gently wipe away the loose powder and all the dark shadow bits with it!

For a formal event, I would stick to neutral colors such as a sparkly beige or pinkish color for eye shadow. If you need a bit more definition, don't hesitate to use eyeliner, but I would stick to the more "reserved" colors on your lids. Try using a darker beige or brown in the crease of your eyelid to give a little more dimension. Also, you can contour with a light, sparkly color on your browbone just under your eyebrow for a fresher look.

For a dark dress, I would go with a general gray. It's very 'in' right now, and compliments most eye colors. Try not to be too dramatic-- keep an edge of class. I would use either S&M or gunmetal (depending on your skin tone). Or both! If you're good with blending-- S&M over lid and gunmetal in crease. Then take your powder foundation and use that on your browbone to blend-- keep the sparkle close to the eye. Finish with a small line of black liquid liner and mascara for vavoom lashes to keep it feminine. Use eyedrops too to make your eyes really pop! Hope that helps!

Use Urban Decay eyeshadow in Gunmetal in the crease and inner part of the eyelid. Next you put Urban Decay eyeshadow in S&M on the outter third of the eyelid. To bring your eye out more you can use Urban Decay eyeshadow in Polyester Bride on the brow bone and the very corner of the eye next to the nose for a pop of brightness. To finish and polish the look you can use black powder on the brows, black eyeliner, and black mascara. Have fun at your special event! :-)

I agree with the make-up artist. I have fair skin and blue-ish green eyes, with blonde hair. I use SIN all the time -- with Naked or Illegal for soft definition or with Secret Service or Heist for a little bit more drama. Illegal and Heist, with their purple undertones, seem to make the green in my eyes really "pop". For highlight, I take a highlighter blush brush and gently swirl it over X (very lightly) I then VERY lightly brush it on my brows and cheekbones -- kind of like a big letter "C". Always use a light hand and keep in mind that "less is more." Blend, blend, blend!

Hi,
I'm a makeup artist.
Who uses Urban Decay product's all the time for my clients.

I would actually use one of the Urban Decay Matte Shadow's in the Crease.
I would recommand using a Medium to Dark Brown or Taupe.
Like Naked, Shakedown, Or Secret Service.

I say to use a matte instead of a glitter or shimmery finish shadow is because you don't want your eye's to get to washed out with glitter.
You want to have a good contrast.
Which is why you would be using a crease color to begin with.

When applying the shadow's for a more natural and subtle look I would suggest to just dust Sin on very lighty over the entire lid with the Good Karma Blender Brush.
Making sure you tap off any extra shadow before applying to the lid.
ALWAYS USE A LIGHT HAND!!!!

Then taking your Good Karma Wonder Brush tap it very lightly into your crease color.

[[ ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO TAP OFF EXTRA PIGMENT.
Otherwise your have a concentration of color in one spot.
And fall out all over your lower lid. ]]

After your brush is loaded with pigment.
** With your eye open. Not pulling taunt. **
Lightly blend into the crease of your lid and upper half of lip.
Starting from the inside cover slowly moving outward.

Don't worry if it looks a little dark at first.
You'll go back over it with the Good Karma Crease Brush to feather everything out and blend it all together.

Now if it looks too light you can go over it agian.
But remember you don't want to look like a zombie with sunken in eyes.

Next we will use a lighter high lighting color on the brow bone.
To open your eyes up.
Taking your Good Karma Shadow Brush.
Using Midnight Cowgirl, Or Maui Wowie.
Just dust the color over the brow bone.
To high light your eyes.
Making them seem larger and brighter.

Your now ready to blend everything together.
Taking your Good Karma Crease Brush you will lightly feather all of the colors outward.
Making a blown out effect.
So that it doesn't look so harsh.
Or like you've got blocks of color on your eyes.

The major key to crease color is always BLENDING!!!!
Most women forgot to blend.

It's also very important to have the right tools for the right look.

Hope I was of some help.
You can always ask me any questions regarding your makeup anytime.

Basically any color that is a compliment to your eye color will work. (A compliment is any color opposite of one on the color wheel.) so if you have green eyes, anything reddish will really make them pop. So purples are always a good choice, any of them will compliment green. Specifically, "Roach", a reddish brown, looks really lovely with green eyes.

Midnight CowBOY has a warm gold undertone and will make "COOL" eyes, like blue, green, gray (or any mixture thereof), POP.

Midnight CowGIRL has a silvery cool undertone and will make "WARM" colored eyes, like brown and warm hazels "POP".

Both of these do not go on as smoothly as Urban Decay shadows normally do -- and they do have quite a bit of glitter. The glitter can be very beautiful at the right event and it is not gaudy.
(Midnight CowBOY RIDES AGAIN is VERY glittery and I do not recommend for anyone that doesn't like glitter!)

The trick to using Midnight CowGIRL or CowBOY is to use it sparingly over an already gorgeous basic eye color like SIN with Secret Service (cool eyes) or SIN with Shakedown (warm eyes).

Also, in order to avoid a glittery cheekbone, before using this shadow put a lot of powder under your eyes so that you can brush it away with the unwanted "fall-out" when you're done! Or use a piece of tissue under your eyes to avoid the "mess". OR if you like the highlighted cheekbone look, use CowBOY on cool-toned skin or CowGIRL on warm-toned skin with a fluffy blush brush and lightly use as a highlighter on the brow bone and the cheekbone -- kind of like a big letter "C"!

Just remember -- a little goes a long ways, and blend, blend, blend!

I love my Midnight Cowboy! Have fun!

Yes, the original Midnight Cowboy is definitely beige with silver glitter.

Midnight Cowboy is a beige with both gold and silver running through it. Depending on the skin tone of the person, the gold will show up more or the silver will come up more. Im a medium- olive skined Dominican and the gold shows up because I have golden undertones.

I have that shade in an eyeshadow palette and I'm pretty sure it's beige with silver glitter.

Question
Looking for a light white or beige eyeshadow
I want a lite color for all over the lid and add a brown on top. I was looking at SIN or Midnight Cowboy. Don't know with one and I don't want a bunch of glitter.

Midnight Cowboy is glittery. Go with Sin instead as it's shimmery but NOT glittery.

I would actually use the Sin eyeshadow primer- it goes on light stays in place not too irridescent and no glitter at all and then you can accent with a brown

Sin is a good lid lid color...if you're thinking Midnight Cowboy, you might want to opt for Sellout instead...I hear MC is pretty sheeny, like a soft metallic.

Sin is a really pretty, shimmery color with small glitter. I love using it on a daily basis, and they also make one of their primer potions in this color which is great for extra long-lasting wear. Midnight Cowboy, on the other hand, has a ton of glitter, so if you're not a fan of glitter it might not be the best choice. It's a nice color, but has too much glitter for me.

I often use Blunt or X as my all-over color. X is amazing. Because of its shimmer, I feel comfortable wearing it with many different colors. It DEFINITELY looks excellent with brown. It may be a bit darker than you want, but I would go with X.

midnight cowboy is an absolutely fabulous shade,one of ud's top sellers,although it does have a lot of color.if you are looking for something as a base for the entire lid and you dont want to look too shimmery,you may want to check out the matte-finish shadows in a lighter color-those work great for a background for another color on top! if you're not dead set on ud,you should totally check out Sephora Collection. they are larger and $5 cheaper:) hope this helps,xoxo!

No. The glitter is very fine and packed into the eyeshadow. Sometimes i don't use a primer either.I've never had a problem with glitter falling onto my face or it wearing off.

I have never used primer with this shadow and there is a bit of glitter that falls right after putting it on, I just wipe that away and the glitter stays on my lid the rest of the day/night.

Yes they do. I would recommend using an eyeshadow primer before using the glittery ones or they will fall off all over your face.

Yes. It does create fall out for me, but it is easily fixed. I usually apply it with a sponge applicator to prevent massive fall out before it is even on my lid. I also put an index card or sticky note under my eye to catch any glitter that falls during application. I personally would not use this if you're going to be away from home all day. Usually every two hours or so I have to take a piece of tape to remove any glitter that has fallen on my cheeks, but the glitter and shadow is so pretty that I feel it's worth it.

No, I've never had any problem with this shadow leaving sparkles on my face (and I have noticed that with some of the other urban decay shadows I've used). I use this as a liner really close to my eyes, and never had one problem with the sparkles.
