Before I apply any eyeshadow, I like to use some sort of base. This Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze isn’t really “Bronze” at all. It’s much more of a taupe, but it provides a lovely base for the neutral eyeshadow I’m going to top it with. Apply a very thin layer the lids and blend outward. You don’t need much, and going overboard will cause the shadows to look cakey and overly metallic.
