Its all about eyeshadows primer
All great eye makeup looks begin with a great eyeshadow primer: It’s the only way to lay down the foundation for liner, shadow, and mascara that lasts without creasing, smudging, caking, or making its slow descent down your face until you’ve got a smokey eye practically down to your chin by late afternoon. Fortunately, the best eyeshadow primers out there aren’t necessarily the ones that cost the most. In fact, these 3 are my very favourites and each one rings in at under $25, so you can go right ahead and put the money you save toward your next eyeshadow purchase.
URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION
The holy grail of primer potions, this has definitely lived up to the hype. This remarkable formula comes in 4 different shades: Original, Eden (a matte tawny colour), Sin (a shimmery champagne), and Greed (gold). These melt into the skin and leave a flawless finish that extends the wear of your eyeshadows for hours.
MAC PAINT POT
These little pots of magnificent colours come in 16 different shades. What makes these so great is they can be worn alone for a soft wash of colour onto the lids as well as a primer underneath your eyeshadows. Used as a base these allow the shadow and pigments to adhere to the eye with little fallout. They blend smoothly into the skin and leave a flawless finish.
TOO FACED SHADOW INSURANCE
This primer prevents fading, creasing, fallout and fading. Since this is a silicone based primer, it creates a barrier between the oil in your skin and your makeup, making this ideal for oily eyelids. This allows the colour to blend smoothly and evenly and gives your eyeshadow better colour payoff.
