There’s a reason the word “proof” is in this title. This white priming formula is ultra durable against the elements that threaten the state of your eye makeup. Creasing, smudging, melting are no match against the steel-like strength of this primer. The stark white color of the cream also serves as the perfect canvas to make any shade pop.
Eyelids can be much like other areas on our face—textured, red, dry, etc. This neutralizing base aims to create a smooth working space for even the most intricate makeup masterpieces. The soft natural shades (taupe, tan, and beige) serve to cancel out any discoloration or pigmentation on the lid. The formula works as a veil that smooths out the lid’s surface and grips the color and shadow textures.
Nothing is more irritating than seeing the perfectly applied and blended shadow you just mastered disappear into your crease and form a very not-cute line across your lid. Nothing. Our friends at L’Oréal Paris understand our pain and created a perfect priming formula to prevent this dreaded makeup moment from happening. The formula keeps your shadow from budging and creates a clean, flawless lid for any makeup look.
You probably have never encountered a time you needed your eyeshadow to last all night. Well, as rare as this occasion probably is, should you need your shadow to last a very long time, this primer has you back. The warm beige matte shade allows for vibrant color, no creasing and smoother application. That’s a product we can get behind.
One person’s nude is another person’s pink or taupe. That’s because all skin tones are different and have different undertones, therefore require different natural-colored makeup. Lancôme understands this, and has created an eye primer that comes in six different shades to match a multitude of skin tones. Oh, and it’s waterproof, so you can put those eyelids through anything and not have to worry about your beautiful masterpiece being ruined.
An eye primer that ensure hours worth of wear is A-okay in our book. The key to keeping your eyes crease-free with primer is all in the application. When it comes to any base, a little goes a long way. Make sure you keep the layer of primer thin and light. Just swipe it over the lid with a gentle hand. If you go to heavy, the shadow will look too cakey.
Now this is technically not an eye primer. This transparent priming solution works all over the face, including the eyelids! And the same magic this formula works on the complexion, translates to the eyes. Yep, the weightless veil-like primer washes over the lids and mattifies, blurs any imperfections and smooths out the skin.
In addition to its prep-work and radiance-boosting properties, this primer also has good-for-you ingredients that pump the skin with antiaging benefits. Apply the primer to the upper and lower lids to make sure you’re prepping and treating the whole region, including the parts that are line- and wrinkle-prone.
We love a product with the word multitasker in the title. This “primer” isn’t your typical prepper that you swipe on before reaching for the makeup. This solution is mixed in with your eyeshadows and eye makeup to strengthen them and make them stay smooth and last longer. Try it with your liquid or cream shadows, or loose glitters.
