A lace overlay is perfect for ethereal, fairytale-inspired characters. Place a lace fabric swatch over the area you wish to cover, then hold the fabric down with your fingers or medical tape while you apply cream or powder shadow over the fabric. Once you have enough product, slowly lift away the fabric. You’ll reveal a gorgeous pattern that looks as if it took hours to create! Protect your design from sweat and smudges with a powerful eye makeup sealer.
