Why Eyeshadow primer?

I have decided to do a series of posts where I go through different kind of products. Why and how you can use them! Pretty much simple tips on simple products.

Let’s start with one of my favorites: Eyeshadow Primer!

Are you experiencing creasing eyeshadow? eyeshadow that is falling down your cheeks during the day, or eyeshadow that just won’t stick to your dry eyelids?

An eyeshadow primer will make your eyeshadow stick to your eyelid, prevent your eyeshadow from creasing and from falling down during the day, it’s like a glue for your eyeshadow.
Before I became a makeup artist I thought eyeprimer was just a trick for the staff to sell me more products.. that was not the case, and I continued my life with oily eyelids and creasing eyeshadow.

An eyeshadow primer will also enhance the payoff of your eyeshadow, and make it look more even.
Tip: if you want to create a really bright eye makeup, use a white eyeshadow primer!

There are eye primers for oily eyelids, and for more dry eyelids, there are colored ones, and transparent ones. There are even specific primers for glitter eyeshadows, these are more sticky to make big glitter particles stick to the skin.

You can also use eye pencils as primers for your eyeshadow, if you want to create a super black smoky eye for example I would recommend using a black pencil as a base instead of a transparent eyeshadow primer.

I have listed my favorite primers above:
1. Urban Decay Primer Potion Original – Love this for a long wear makeup. Works very well for oily eyelids as well! (reklamlänk/adlink)
2. NYX professional makeup Glitter Primer – This primer is great if you want to work with loose glitters, they stick very well to this primer. (reklamlänk/adlink)
3. Linda Hallberg Black Core Crayon – This Crayon is amazing to use under a smokey eye.
4. Linda Hallberg White Core Crayon – A white Crayon that can be used under any color to make it really pop!


If there is any “Why-product” you want me to write about, any product you find unneccesary or just want to know more about? tell me!
