All about Eye Primers

What does an Eye Primer do?

If you are a regular or even sporadic user of any kind of eye makeup – eye shadows or eyeliners, you will immediately notice the benefits of using an eye primer. A primer specially formulated for eyelids, it keeps your eye shadow and eyeliner on point all day – without creasing, smudging, or running. 

Differently textured and formulated than face primers, eye primers generally come in a gel-like consistency and are thicker than face primers. It has a silky consistency which improves the texture of your eyelids and creates a smooth canvas, helping eye makeup product glide on smoother, stay on longer, and giving it a vibrant pigment. It helps eye shadow blend better, helping you achieve the makeup look you want. 

Eye primers can powerfully prevent creasing by absorbing excess oil which helps not only with eye shadow but also locks eyeliner in place. It ensures your eyeliner glides on evenly and prevents it from smudging or rubbing off even with extended wear for hours. Eye primers come in different shades and also come as a translucent gel so you have your pick of what you want. A versatile product, eye primers are perfect for all skin types, tones, and textures.

As well as helping you craft a stunning (and super long lasting) eye statement, eye primers can be used in other ways. You can use eye primers under your eyes (especially if you have creases under your eyes) to smoothen out the lines before applying concealer. This will help your concealer last longer and prevent it from settling into the fine lines around your eyes. You can use it on your brows as well to make your brow powder last longer and stay put all day long.
