Over the years I’ve pared down my makeup routine, ditching the full liner/eyeshadow/mascara look for one trusted liquid eyeliner and maybe a coat or two of mascara. It takes a major occasion (and extra time) for me to bust out an eye palette, but Wander Beauty’s Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow in Bronze ($26) has convinced me to bring back shadow to my daily cosmetics kit.
Since my eyelids tend to be oily, I usually need primer before swiping on eyeliner. This shimmery liquid eye shadow goes on creamy and dries quickly, giving my lids a metallic sheen in just one to two coats. (The formula is buildable, so you can layer it on for more vibrancy.)
Bonus: it doubles as a primer, simultaneously staying put (no end-of-day crease lines here!), while keeping my liner in check all day. Plus, I love that this compact tube is travel-ready, saving much-needed space in my already minimalist makeup bag.
