How To Apply
With either fingertips or brushes, apply vertical pressure in the jar; think pressing, rather than just swiping. And unlike traditional pressed eye shadows, you do not have to be delicate with your Ash and Ember Eye Soots as the product cannot crack or shatter.
We recommend using dense, firmer bristled brushes to be able to pick up the most product, and some of the easiest shapes to start with are short smudge brushes and angled liner brushes.
Eye Soots are a true all-in-one eye product. If you are new to the world of Rituel de Fille, we suggest you try application on bare skin first to get a feel for how your colors will apply and wear on you.
Whether or not to use an additional primer is ultimately a matter of preference and individual needs. If you have extremely oily lids and have trouble keeping any product in place, you may want to apply a base layer of your favorite primer before applying your Eye Soot. If you do choose to use an additional primer: we have found that particularly dry primer formulas can cause some skipping upon initial application of Eye Soots, but this can be easily blended out with a brush or fingertip.
Oil-based primers that do not dry down, or concealers used as a primer, may break down the product and significantly reduce wear time, so we do not recommend these.
