QOTW: How Do You Deal With Eyeshadow Fallout?

How do you deal with eyeshadow fallout?

My answer: I always apply eyeshadows first so if any fallout occurs, I can remove it without ruining the rest of my makeup. Usually, I just remove any small flakes with a fluffy brush and then apply concealer on top. But if I’m using dark eyeshadow shades, then I use it a q-tip soaked with makeup remover. Trying to remove those with a brush would only make an even bigger mess!

I rarely have to deal with this anymore I guess because I got rid of the shadows I had that did this but when this happens, try a fan brush Gio, it kind of works like magic. The fact that the bristles have a bit of space between them makes them pick up powder super easily & I’ve rarely had to use concealer or powder to cover up messes. 🙂

Icaria, sounds great! I will definitely try it next time. Thanks for the tip. 🙂

I use a fan brush, too. Just angle it below your eye when you’re applying powders, and it lifts everything. If you don’t have the money to invest in one, a small business card below the eye works just as well.

i don’t really have an issue with fall out .. I’m not a fan of loose pigment eye shadows.

Monica, it’s a shame that loose eyeshadows are so messy to use cos they are very pretty and versatile. I used to use them often, but these days I prefer pressed powders. Sometimes, I experience fallout with them too, but it’s rarer.
