Eye shadow sticks make life a little bit easier (and lot less messy). You don't have to worry about sweeping away crumbly powder that's settled on your cheekbones or washing your fingers after applying. Just one swipe, and you're out the door, on your merry, wedding-planning way.
I've been testing the new Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints, available in February. They come in 12 sheer, creaseless colors--just apply more to build up intensity! And they're packed with vitamin E so they're good for your skin.
Another great option: Laura Mercier's waterproof Caviar Sticks. Pictured below, new shades for February! (From left to right: Sugar Frost, Rosegold, Sand Glow, and Grey Pearl). Grey Pearl is my fave!
