Neutral Smokey Makeup look with Morgana Cryptoria

Here's the first look I did with 2 shadows from Morgana Cryptoria's Eye See You Halloween eyeshadow collection. I wanted to test out the Socket To Me eye primer as well. I normally wear an anti-crease primer (I have REALLY oily lids so everything tends to crease like mad on me), then apply an eyeshadow base primer, but I wanted to see if this was wearable for me without a primer. Unfortunately it's not. However, it only creased a tiny bit so it's still pretty good for not using an anti-crease primer with it. I know a lot of you don't have issues with creasing, but a lot of you do. So for anyone interested in trying this primer, you may still need an anti-crease primer if you have issues with creasing.

I do like the Socket To Me eye primer. It's very smooth, blends easily and does help the shadow adhere as well as makes it almost effortless to blend.  I really like it so far and will keep using it to get a better feel for how much I need to use (I think I used too much for this look). This is not meant to be super sticky. It does not work for glitter, in case you were wondering about that.

Don't mind the gross bug bite on my neck. Dang spiders are taking over my house!
