As per the kind request from lady Karoliina from Bones and Lilies, I shall follow-up on the recipe I shared with you all for a DIY eyeshadow primer.
I was rather negligent; forgetting to post the most important part: exactly how long is a long time for this recipe?
To be certain, after I put on my make up for the Professor's assignment, I left it on and went on about my day after all the shooting and writing was done.
Well... I put a little extra effort forth throughout the day, just to be good and sure.
I don't work out at all, I'll tel you that now; I also don't sweat a whole lot-- not enough that my skin would feel damp, anyway. Nevertheless, I put myself through quite a work out; I danced vigorously while attempting an equally vigorous whole house clean up-- admittedly with large breaks. The house was kept around 79 degrees Fahrenheit all the while, which is roughly 26 degrees Celsius.
I have combination skin; my t-zone is bone dry, while the rest is oily. Skin type might factor into the durability of this formula.
Here is a pictorial progression of the color of my eyeshadow throughout the day:
The rest of my make up melted off, but my eyes seemed to have kept up with the pace I set fairly decently. This'll sound completely subjective, but I feel like the last two photos aren't accurately portraying the vibrancy of the color left over; it seemed better than what the photos are showing, and it could be the twilight and florescent lighting involved in the two-- my camera is finicky with those two types of light. In any case, the color still remained.
I lost my blending brush, so that might have something to do with the poor blending... I take responsibility if that was my own lack of skill. For those of you who are blending savvy/able, please let me know if it's the actual primer that hinders the ease of this process. I would love to improve upon the formula, if improvement is what it needs for the majority. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy it!
Although, in reality, I'll probably be tinkering with this recipe regardless if I think it needs it or not... heh!
