Marching band and band camp in the hot summer meant sweat, football games on humid Friday evenings, and messy hair under a marching hat (plume and all, y'all). I didn't over-do my makeup on festival days or for football games, but some mascara and eyeliner were typical. By the end of the night, I looked like I had been hanging out with Beetlejuice (if only!).
Playing that piccolo at a football game. Pep band only, so I didn't have my uniform on.
Many eye primers are expensive and available only at high-end retailers. Imagine my joy at discovering that Wet N Wild has an eye primer! I found it at Walgreen's for only $4.99, and a little of it goes a loooong way.
This liquid eyeliner blends in well with my skin tone. I am fair, so I am not sure how it looks on darker skin tones. I imagine it is sheer.
Be careful not to squeeze the tube too hard--a little pressure is all you need! Otherwise, you'll waste valuable primer!
This primer does not irritate my eyes at all, either!
The true test: how well does my eye shadow last?

Sorry for the tired-looking "late afternoon" pictures!
Overall, my shadow is almost as vibrant as in the morning, and I had no creasing. That is very important to me, especially since I sometimes go out after work and don't have time to re-apply makeup, especially eye shadow.
- Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime" is my summer jam.
- I am addicted to Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I don't want to admit how long I played it this past weekend.
