If any of you applied pigments and glitter – you know they can fall down under the eye very easy and can ruin entire make-up…
For fall out pigment or eyeshadow sometimes it helps to apply a thicker layer of loose powder under your eyes. This will catch any falling shadows and after finishing make-up just simply dust off the powder. However depend from your skin condition and foundation – excess of powder on under eye area can look heavy or get enhance your wrinkles…
If anyway eyeshadow would do spots on your skin – re-applying or trying cover it with foundation or cancellers can ruin a flawless skin. I had this problems few times in my work…
I believe that even if you will work under pressure of time – if done flawless skin as 1rs then eyes don 2nd – this can save you & your reputation e.g in lack of time you may be suggested/forced e.g. photographer/organizer to do last minute changes to previously planned look (make it simple) only to allow him to use remaining time for taking photos of garment.
Worth to mention fact that this practice not good for glitters! You will never get the skin completely free of glitter!
TIP: if it’s just few tiny spots – you can try catch it with sellotape.
Fall out isn’t an issue If you do the eyes first – so any fallout can be cleaned away easily then apply the rest of the face. I personally never like do it, because it can ruin /or/ affect blended edges of eyeshadows/glitters with foundation and cancellers – and becomes harder to blend it together.
Of course make-up industry will never let you down! You can get tools and products that will help you! :
Shadow Shields are a great option but sadly they are to be used and thrown away – making them expensive in the long run. Due to semi fabric material is not recommended in applying mascara – material get gets into mascara wand.

Silcopads by Costoo (clear or white)
Product is fantastic! I love it! Sticky silicone that if cleaned and disinfected after use- can be reused multiply times! note – If powder area under your eyes – it would become less sticky… Silcopads adhere better to skin that is not powdered There might be a little bit of “movement of foundation or concealer” but that can be easily blended back in.
Since I got my Silcopads I still can’t find some original Silcopads website in English language (sic!) – I found only Polish language http://www.silcopad.pl/ and German language website www.costoo.net describing fully this product…also there is still lack of retailers that selling this product within European Union… – so this is quite unusual and hard to understand…Amazon US sells it but you won’t find it in Amazon UK. I have ordered my set from Spain beauty shop XXL Lashes http://www.xxllashes.com/en/ – 10,50 EUR. This brand got few more versions designed for beauty therapists!
My step by step test: 🙂
Quite similar to Silcopads – with one difference – Its Black and got slightly different shape :/ http://www.beautyexpress.co.uk/silcopad/ – Price £10.29 ex vat (note: you must make minimum order – £50)
