The other day I brought home a new primer and my husband asked me, “What does primer even do?” So I threw a swatch of it down on my hand, let it dry and then ran some eye shadow across a section with and a section without. I was actually pretty surprised by the difference it made! I knew it made a big difference, but seeing it side by side, I was impressed!
See the difference? I mean really, the picture speaks for itself!
Primer gives the shadow something to really stick to and helps it last. It allows you to really build up a bold, beautiful color that you just can’t get without primer. Honestly, if you aren’t using primer, you are probably using WAY more product than you would be if you had just primed your lids.
If you are looking for a great drugstore primer check out, e.l.f. Eyelid Primer. It’s only $3.95 from Amazon. If you want to spend a little more cash and get my favorite, check out Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. Don’t want to buy a primer at all? Try using concealer on your eyelids to give your shadow a little something extra to stick to.
Are you using an eye primer you really love? Have you tried any great lip or face primers to make your makeup really last?
