How To Make Your Eye Shadow Stay On? "Request"

  • Hi everyone,
  • You may wonder why Primer, well a simple reason is that you face produces natural oils that can tend to make you make up smudge. Some great ways to control the oils while being able to where eye shadow is by using primers.Primers are just great way to create a seal between your eyelids and your eyeshadow. Primers also create smooth eyelids for easy application.
  • Today I got a request to do a blog about how to keep your shadow on through out the day. Believe me for years I have struggled with this too. I'd put on a really pretty eyeshadow and by the end of the day it would all be gone or it would crease. (And if you know me I am a huge eyeshadow junkie:])
  • Well, there  are a few different ways to keep keep your eyeshadow from fading throughout the day. The first way would be using a concealer, this  can be purchased for a few dollars at any CVS or Rite Aid or whatever type of drugstore you have around your area. Some products that I would recommend would be Physicians Formula Rx for dark circles. This is the product I have talked about before  in a different blog. This works wonders, it gets rid of dark circles and keeps your eyeshadow on all day. It can be purchased for $8.95 at CVS. Another product that I would recommend from CVS  is the Almay  eye base and Concealer ($8.99). Another great product from CVS is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Perfector($13.99). If your a looking to spend under five dollars you can purchase the "Wet n Wild" Concealer stick,($1.99) This Concealer stick does the trick as well but doesn't make too much of a hole in your wallet.If you don't want to use a concealer to prime your eyes there are many eye shadow primers that will do the trick, though these are a little bit more costly but they work magic. One primer that I only hear good things about is the Urban Decay primer potion that costs around 18 dollars. Another high end primer is the MAC prep and Prime eye primer, two faced eye primer and the Lancome Eye primer.
  • If you have tried any other primers or know any other tricks to keep your eyeshadow from fading or creasing please leave a comment on the bottom, I'm curious to see what other people use to keep their eyeshadow from fading or creasing.
