|As one with allergies, I can tell you that your eyes will thank you since you don't stir up nearly as much pigment this way.|
Here’s what I now do that is working very well. Instead of taking your dome-shaped brush and brushing it briskly in the middle to gather the pigment, I suggest hold that eye shadow brush on its side and sweep it across the color. Doing it this way, picks up enough clinging pigment for more even application.
After I have my brush loaded with pigment, I like to lightly dust the brush tip of excess shadow in a tissue first before taking the brush to my eyes. You will be shocked how well this trick works to save your eyes from irritation.
Brushing the pigment on in this fashion does keep the dry eye shadow from breaking up in the wrong places as it can do after a while.
Try this little tip because it does help save your eyes!
