Our daily routine starts off with waking up, preparing for the day by washing our face and doing our hair, then applying make-up which we will reapply towards mid-day. Reapplying facial powder and mascara is a breeze, but what about the creasing, worn look of eye shadow after several hours of wear? Applying more eye shadow over the creased areas just makes lids feel heavy and does little to hide the wear and tear of the shadow. That is why eye shadow primer is a must have in your make-up bag. Eye shadow primer is very similar to foundation and you wouldn’t apply your blush and powder without first applying foundation would you?
Dr. Wright’s Tip
Eye primer gives your eye shadow something to hold onto, without this, eye shadow is known to have a tendency to flake and to crease. The primer also acts as a filler to conceal fine lines, giving your eye shadow a much smoother canvas to work with. Much like foundation you should pick the one that most closely matches your own skin color. It is not an eye shadow in itself and it is not intended to be seen, just to be the base for your beautiful eye shadow. Its unique formula is designed to bond with your eye shadow to give you the longevity to get through the day with your shadow looking fresh hour after hour. There are many different blends to choose from and as with any other make-up product, it is important to select the one best suited for your skin type.
Most are easy to apply and you don’t need to be a make-up artist to work with this remarkable product. You simply apply a thin, even layer over your lid and allow about a minute for it to dry and then apply your eye shadow as normal. After one use it is easy to see why women are clamoring to own eye shadow primer. If you want to keep your eyes fresh and beautiful morning, noon and night, then eye shadow primer might just become your new best make-up secret.
