To continue on in with our back to the basics segment, I thought I'd talk about another important primer that is near and dear to my heart: Eye Primer.
When I'm helping people at work, I often hear the complaint that they "can't" or "don't like to" wear eye shadow because it gets all over throughout the day, it creases, wears off etc. It breaks my makeup-loving-heart that these women have never heard of eye primer!
Eye primer is similar to face primer in that it helps the product to stay all day. It also keeps the colors you are using true to pigment. A lot of time the color of a shadow looks sort of faded if you aren't using a primer on your lid. You usually have to use a lot more product to get the same sort of saturation. Most importantly, in my sweaty-lidded opinion, it keeps the shadows from creasing (that ugly build up of product that usually looks like a line right across your lid.) HALLELUJAH. --I have to tell you a sad story about that. i get a sad little pit in my stomach when i look at my wedding pictures because i didn't know about eye primer at that point in my life. And i got married in AUGUST. So...needless to say, my eye makeup had pretty much melted off my face by the end of the night. NOT COOL, GUYZ. So, please. Learn from my mistake! Anyway...
My all-time fave is:
