Wet-look lids are so sexy and they look so low maintenance — but they are NOT easy to achieve. It’s super hard to keep a dewy eyelid from migrating and not become messy. That’s because you blink about a billion times per day. However, celeb makeup artist Jillian Dempsey (and wife of former Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey) will help you to master the art of the glossed lid with her finger-friendly Jillian Dempsey Lid Tints.
These swipe ‘n’ go satin shadows are meant to applied with a digit and to look imperfect — like you had a late night, slept in your makeup, and woke up late the next morning for a meeting. Lid Tints allow for a lived in, “next day” sexiness by adding a sheer wash of color. And you can add as much or as little pigment as you wish. It will take a little practice, but with the hot and sticky summer months ahead, you really will appreciate the dab ‘n’ go ease of Lid Tints. In my experience with Lid Tints, they are best paired with a some eyeliner along the bottom waterline and a single coat of mascara. New shades are the rosy Glimmer, the peachy Shell, and the needs-no-explanation Ruby. Also, if you crush hard on the makeup looks Dempsey has created for clients like Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart, you should download her FYFE app. It’ll feel like Mrs. Dreamy is your own personal makeup artist.
