If you’ve never done the “glossy lid” now might be the time for you to give it a shot. After all, it is trending this season and will have your eyes glistening with a fresh, dewy look that you’re sure to love. The beauty of it is that it enables you to add some sheen without having to resort to super shimmery powder shadows to get the job done. Though it can be done with any eyeshadow color as your first layer, you can also pull off a neutral look by doing it sans color. Be forewarned though, this look does have its downsides:
Gloss on the lid feels sticky, but you can prevent it from feeling uncomfortable by applying the gloss to the lid only, while avoiding the crease.

While studying painting, photography, and film in college, her focus on her makeup talent began when a film professor asked her to be the makeup artist for the film he was directing.

It’s a spritz-and-go world that we live in and now Vaseline has jumped into the game with a spray body moisturizer. No fuss, no muss, no waiting: just spritz, rub, and you’re out the door. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer ($8) dispenses lotion quickly and evenly and comes in three varieties: Aloe Fresh, Cocoa Radiant, and Total Moisture.
I tried the Total Moisture, which is formulated with pure oat extract and Vaselineâ€™s Stratys-3, a multi-layer moisturizer that quickly absorbs into skin with just a quick rub. At first, I was a little wary about a spray-on lotionâ€”I was so used to slathering on heavy creams. Would such a quick alternative really make my skin feel silky smooth even in dry and cold weather? The answer, fortunately, is yes.
Application is fool-proof: just hold the can four inches from your skin and spray it over arms, legs, and body in a continuous motion. Then, quickly rub it into your skin and youâ€™re ready to go. Now thereâ€™s no more waiting for your lotion to dry before having to throw on clothes. Even better, thereâ€™s no more of that greasy or sticky feeling either. Plus, I noticed that my skin felt soft and moisturized hours after use.
Fair warning: if you decide to use it in the office for a little moisture pick-me-up, you may get a few strange looks when your colleagues hear someone spraying.Â If you’re in the market for a moisturizing facial spritz, we have a great round-up here. And those suffering from dry skin or eczema can look into CapriClear Spray-on Moisturizer, which is applied the same way but the gentle hypo-allergenic formula makes it safe for all skin types while alleviating very dry and itchy skin.
