Primers and Bases

Hey loves, primers and bases have become very important in make up because they do a few things.  Those of use who have oily lids can now enjoy wearing make up without it creasing or fading off.  A primer is a product that goes all over the lid and or the lower lash line and acts as a buffer between your lid and your shadow.  It does not allow the oils of your lids to come through and spoil all your hard work, you can then put whatever colour on top as it either drys to a cream finish or drys clear.  There is also coloured shadows with built in base, that is to say they also don't crease and fade while they have colour.  Primers are now so widely available, while yes some don't do a good job they are so many that do from high end right down to the lowest end.  I share a wide ranger of coloured shadows and a primer.  Using a primers for my eyeshadow has become like second nature, its I don't skip unless /i am wearing no eyeshadow at all. 

Using a primer or long wear shadow allows your your eye makeup to last a long time, very good for people with oily lids like myself, for functions where you don't want to retouch your makeup, and just for long wear.

See you soon loves
