So I am planning to do my own wedding day makeup. I’m not too much of a makeup girl, I often don’t wear makeup, and when I do, I stick to the basics. The tutorials I’ve read & seen have been VERY helpful, and my mini-trials are going quite well except for one thing…
I feel like all the eye shadow & concealer makes my eyelids and eyes look wrinkly! Is that normal for makeup, and my problem is that I’m just not used to wearing much of it? Or, is that a symptom of applying it too heavily? Or is it the fact that I’m using eyeshadow that has shimmer? I thought that the shimmer might be catching the light on small wrinkles and making them look bigger.
PLEASE ADVISE!! Thanks bees 🙂

Are you using eye primer? That could help.
To a certain degree it’s true, make up makes you look wrinkly but there are degrees.

@Marinara…is it possible you can share a pic with us so that we can maybe provide some feedback? Using a primer is a good idea but it could also be your application technique.

I agree with the primer thing, but yes, a picture could help.

I find I have this problem when I use cream shadows. Does it look wrinkly when you first put it on your lid, or not until a few hours later? I agree a picture would help. Using an eyeshadow primer makes a huge difference as well, as indicated by Arachna.

A primer would definately help however as a cheaper option try applying your foundation or face powder to your eye before the eyeshadow, this should help it apply smoother x

Shimmery eye shadow makes your eyes look more wrinkly, so try matte colors.

I agree w/the primer tip. But also in having some loose powder dusted over the primer too, will keep any shadow from getting stuck in a crease.
I always dust some mineral veil from bareminerals over my face and eyes before applying shadow. I like it, it’s not heavy, and at 40, I don’t have wrinkles on my eyes. It works great!!!
Also, sparkly areas or frosted areas will tend to clump in crevices or any wrinkled area, so save the glitter or frosty highlights for maybe under the browline. Stick to a matte color for the lid. I learned that from my bff, who was the regional manager for L’ancome. She rocks and taught me so much!
