Pro Make-up Tips: Getting the Most Out of your Eye Primer & Eyeshadow

By  |  0 Comments

We’ve all heard the buzz about make-up primer and how it will be a good investment for our make-up bags but what does it actually do?

Despite the eyelid skin being noticeably thinner compared to facial skin, eyelids still produce oil which can cause eye make-up to slide around and end up in the crease. Using primer before eyeshadow application not only provides the perfect even base for eye make-up; it also helps even out any discolouration and smooths the appearance of fine lines on the eyelids too.

A good quality eye primer will blend smoothly onto the eyelids, dry invisibly, intensify the colour pigment of the eyeshadow and prolong the wear of your eye make-up…all in one!

Now that we’re primed and ready, let’s turn our focus to eyeshadow…whether you opt for cream or powder we all want to make our eyes pop! So what’s the best way to apply eyeshadow for maximum impact?
