Unusual beauty tip: many uses of an eyeshadow primer

Ah, eyeshadow primer ... makes my life much less complicated :D. I have hooded lids and eyeshadows crease on me in no time. But you can use your eyeshadow primer in many other ways. Let's find out how :)


1. When you apply your eye primer on your lid, make sure you apply it on your lower lashline as well if you intend to put any shadows or pencil there. It will prevent smudging all over your face.

 

2. Use it as a base before you fill in your brows. If you apply eyeshadow or brow shadow on your brows, it will stay on longer if you apply primer on your brows first. I do that especially whenever I do black brows for weekly tag or any other crazy look.


3. Apply it around your lips to prevent lipstick from smudging. I thought this "technique" by Petite Sal, when she posted a tutorial how to get perfect red lips (check it out here: click). Primer around your lips is actually like a lip liner, an invisible lip liner and it prevents smudging your lipstick!


4. Have some fine smiling lines around your lips? You can apply your eyeshadow primer there before foundation if you don't want to use all over face primer, this will smooth out that area and prevent foundation from getting in those lines! Make sure eyeshadow primer is matte, you don't want any unwanted shimmer around your lips.




5. You can also use it as a concealer if primer is in "concealer color" and has no shimmer.


If you have any other ideas how to use an eyeshadow primer and how do you use it, please, share it with the world in a comment ;)
Thank you for reading!

    1. Jaz trenutno uporabljam Essence I <3 stage in Too faced shadow insurance. Mi pa noben od teh ni najljubši najljubši. Še vedno iščem idealnega.
