Why use an eye primer?
Before starting any eye makeup look, it is important to prepare the eyelids.
The best way to get your eyelids ready for eyeshadow is to keep them hydrated, by applying a moisturizer daily. The second important tip is to use an eye primer.
Like our face, our eyelids can be oily or dry; if we apply the shadow directly to the skin, after a while, the eyeshadow will crease into the fine lines or dry skin, so an eye primer acts as a barrier between skin and makeup.
1) This barrier prevents eyeshadow from creasing. It makes a smooth canvas for eyeshadow to go on more even and makes it easier to blend your makeup.
2) Primers help eyeshadow adhere and grip to the eyelid so it will prevent the eyeshadow from fading or from smudging, making makeup last longer.
3) A primer can help your eyeshadows pigments stand out and look more vibrant. Some shadows, especially powder formulas, appear lighter on the skin than they do in the palette. In this case, a primer can help you achieve more color, especially if colors don't seem to show up much on your skin tone. Primers come in different shades, the whiter the primer, the more vibrant your eyeshadow will appear.
4) Eyeshadow primer is used to even out the skin color of your lids. It can also cover visible veins. This way you have an even base to place down your shadow.
