Eyeshadow Sticks - 5 reasons I love them!

Updated: Jul 16, 2020

So here's the thing, there are so many powder, cream and liquid eyeshadows out there and I do like them for creating looks on my clients. However, when I'm on holiday with my family, I don't like to wear too much makeup (it's time to show off my tan duh!) but obviously I want to look glamorous for the evening! Cue Eyeshadow Sticks.. and here's why I love them:

1. They are a godsend for those of us with no time

Take one pencil and sweep it over your eye lid. Smudge and blend it with your finger, add mascara and you're done!

2. They are portable

They take up little room, can be packed with hand luggage and you don't even need to take brushes.

3. They are multi-tasking

Use your eyeshadow sticks as eyeliners, blushes or lip tints and create a range of looks!

4. They come in multiple finishes

Whether you want matt, colourful, waterproof or sparkly, there is a pencil for you.

5. They are a great place to start if you are new to makeup

For those just starting to use makeup, they are a good cost effective way of experimenting what colours work for you and they are easy to apply and use.
