Creamy to the touch, this eye shadow base cranks up the high-definition factor in any type of eyeshadow. Even better, this base is best used underneath a super glittery pigment or pan.
Perhaps the ultimate eye primer, Urban Decay’s version is a staple for any makeup starter kit. It keeps your shadow from slipping and sliding for hours on end – it really is the closest thing we’ll get to an everlasting potion. UD’s primer line also includes Caffeine, Freebase, Sin, Eden, and an anti-aging formula that works to blur flaws. “My favorite Eyeshadow Primer Potion is Fix, a limited edition shade,” Zomnir says. “What I love about it most is that 100% of the purchase price will be donated to women’s empowerment nonprofits selected by the Ultraviolet Edge, our global initiative to empower women.” Non-slip makeup for a good cause?

Also an excellent face primer, this Bye-Bye Pores base blurs any lines or creases on your eyelids to avoid any smudgy shadow transfer.
YSL’s eye primer is great for the perfect matte base underneath eyeshadow or as a stand alone base for the perfect nude eye.
Another super smooth formula, Maybelline’s eye-primer version is ideal for your everyday, neutral look. We’ll be using this one a lot this coming season for 90s makeup looks and glittery smoky eyes.
