I’m using Honey Lust from Mac to demonstrate how this works because how you apply this particular shadow completely changes the finish!
The first swatch (on the far left) is applied dry, like you would normally use an eyeshadow. It’s pretty but it’s quite chalky and it’s not very vibrant at all.
The second way of applying this shadow (the middle swatch) you have probably heard about before and it’s just using a slightly damp brush. This method nearly always creates a more pigmented look and is a technique I use all the time! I also find it makes my shadow last a little longer.
And finally the third swatch is the point of this post. I used some multi purpose solution – basically it’s just what you put your contacts in! I’ve seen this for about £3 in supermarkets so it’s super inexpensive and as you can see completely changes the look of your eyeshadows!
Multi Purpose Solution like this is normally just salt water and if you are going to use this you only need a tiny drop of the solution :)
I hope this has been helpful!
