Though I do have rudimentary knowledge of makeup application, I wouldn't know where to begin in choosing the right brands. I prefer a creamy foundation with a smooth finish that will not wear off during the day (in a five hour period). I've typically had issues with my cream eyeshadow wearing off around the center so I end up with a hollowed out eyelid. I love the look of creamy eyeshadows but the wearing off it one thing that I do dislike. So I ask... do you ladies have any suggestions for foundations and eyeshadows?
