Q & A | How do I prevent my eyeshadow from melting in the heat?

Q: Hi Rhia, Thanks for all your travel tips on your blog! They are very helpful as I pack for my Spring Break trip! One question I do have though is how do I keep my eyeshadow from melting away in the heat?

A: Great question! Believe me, you’re not the only one with these gripes – this question is right up there in the top ten list of what I get asked the most! So it’s worth driving the message home that eyeshadow can be low-fuss when the right products are used! I have oily lids myself, so wearing darker eyeshadows used to be tricky as it never failed – the product would gravitate towards the crease. Enter cream eyeshadows. From personal experience and from working with brides (who need their make-up to last all day), I find the combination of layering cream and eyeshadow lasts longer together, rather than wearing either product on its own.

How to Apply
Choose a neutral shade and use it as a base for your powder eyeshadow application. With your ring finger, layer on the cream eyeshadow all over the eyelid. Proceed with application of your powder eyeshadow.

Recommended Products
Some cream eyeshadows just don’t make the cut. Here are some of my favourite tried and tested cream eyeshadows:
