There is a beauty solution for every problem - and our new crush is eye shadow primer. If you wear eye makeup, chances are you will benefit from this product. Created to eliminate creasing and slippage; its goal is to keep liner, eye shadow and shimmer in place, and looking perfect for hours. Distantly related to face primers, they're thicker and come in easy-travel tubes. A game-changer, guaranteed to keep lids looking great. Here's how to use them.
Top tips: Apply primer with your finger this helps warm the product so it melts onto lids, and blends evenly. Wait a few minutes for it to dry, and then apply eye shadow with a brush.
Only use a tiny amount of primer, and apply it with your ring finger as this finger has the least amount of pressure.
Eye primer is formulated to hold your shadow in place, due to its consistency - matte and slightly tacky. It is also ideal for keeping your glasses on. Simply, apply a dot of primer on the bridge of your nose before applying foundation, and this prevents glasses sliding off your face - genius.
