See­ing Dou­ble

“Re­mem­ber, the most flat­ter­ing and mod­ern way to wear colour is on one part of your face,” says Tong. For the hy­dra-cau­tious, the eyes are a great place to play with wet and dry tech­niques.

“A wet-dry prod­uct is much more ver­sa­tile, al­low­ing an ef­fort­less day-to-evening trans­for­ma­tion,” says Fabian Lui, make-up di­rec­tor at Baremin­er­als. “When used dry, colours are softer and more translu­cent, with a sheer to medium in­ten­sity. When used wet, shim­mer shades cre­ate an opaque wash of high sheen known as ‘foil­ing’—a lus­trous, light-re­flec­tive glow that lasts for hours.”

Lui ad­vises us­ing eye­shadow dry for a nat­u­ral glow dur­ing the day, and wet for a dra­matic, high shim­mer at night or for a more for­mal oc­ca­sion. Avoid us­ing lighter shades wet to high­light the brow­bone, as the shim­mer will be too in­tense.
