Dramatic Eye Shadow Without Those Dreaded Raccoon Eyes featured image

Every now and then-also known as every weekend-an occasion comes up that calls for a dramatic eye shadow look. But that dark, smoky stare can leave you looking more like a raccoon than a fox. The old loose-powder-under-the-eyes trick works pretty well (assuming you even knew about it), but haven’t we come farther in our quest for unsmudged under-eyes?

Yes, actually.

Created by makeup artist Michelle Villanueva, Shadow Shields are an ingenious option for those who are fans of bold shadow but not of the less-than-sexy look that occurs when it falls below the eyes.

Each self-adhesive, crescent-shaped shield comfortably attaches just above the cheek. As pigment drops from your brush, it falls on the white pad-not your skin. Instead of a mess, you’re left with a clean, professional-looking finish.

Speaking of professionals, Villanueva’s colleagues, including famous makeup artists like Mally Roncal and Sutan, have started using Shadow Shields on their clients, simply because it makes their job so much easier.

Makeup may not be your job, but they’ll definitely make your life a little easier-and more gorgeous.
