How To Appropriately Apply Eyeshadow Primer
Eyeshadow primer is primarily applied to make your makeup last longer. If your concealer is creasing, it will stop creases under the eye. It is also used as a base. Here one of the leading Indian makeup artists in Blackburn, Bollywood Cuts N Brows shares the right way to apply primer in case you’re doing it by yourself.
How to apply Eyeshadow Primer
You need to find the right sort of primer for you. If you have a dark eyeshadow, you need a darker eye shadow primer. For a lighter colour you will need flesh coloured makeup. A yellow or peach primer works against purple or brown eyeshadow. You need to apply a small amount using a smaller finger to your eyelid and work it into the skin. You need to let it dry for about 30 seconds before applying the eyeshadow.
Alternative: Pencil Eyeshadow or Eyeshadow Primer in Pots
A pencil eyeshadow may be better off with a tube primer, which has more wet feel than most primers. This doesn’t produce the lines of other primers. You can get eyeshadow primer in various shades such as matte and pearl, which are both designed to hold the colour rather transform it.
Eyeshadow Primer DIY
There are various home-made substances you can use instead of primer, such as unflavoured/unscented Milk of Magnesia or Aloe Vera gel. It should be applied by cotton swab, be careful not to get any in your eyes. An unflavoured chap stick, corn-starch and liquid foundation (the same colour of your skin) can also be mixed together to create a home-made substitute.
Homemade Facial Masks
The good thing about using home-made masks is that you can leave out materials to which you have a reaction. You need to add the water to aloe-vera in order to make sure it sets. If aloe-vera is unsuitable you could always use coconut oil.
Pros and Cons
The pros of eyeshadow primer include longer lasting eyeshadow and more definition. On the other hand, it may be possible that you are allergic to some of the components of the primer and it may affect your skin. It’s also possible that the components might cause abdominal discomfort. They are also quite expensive. Ultimately it comes down to what you want to pay.
