Don't Apply Powder Eyeshadow After Mascara
If you do, the shadow can drift onto your still-wet lashes, making them look dusty. There is an exception to this rule, though, says Michael Pierce, lead makeup artist for Hourglass Cosmetics. "If you have very deep-set eyes or droopy lids, you need to lift the eyelid with your finger in order to apply mascara. You wouldn't want to ruin your perfect shadow application with a smudgy fingerprint. Instead, apply one coat of mascara first, then do your eyeshadow, and finish with a light second coat on the ends to cover any of the powder that may have stuck to lashes."
