Makeup Must Have: Eye Primer

If I had my way, I’d be wearing full glam makeup every day.  Every. Day. But that’s just not realistic.  When it comes down to it, I’d rather sleep than spend 45 minutes  putting on makeup and lashes.  Fact.  However, whether your makeup routine is 10 minutes, 10 seconds or non-existent, there is something I think everyone should have in their arsenal.  Eye Primer.


Eye primer is one of those miracle products.  It acts to control oil on the eyelids so you can avoid greasy eyes at the end of the day.  Not cute.  It helps your eyeshadow application and makes it go on smoother and brighter.  Primer can also act as a concealer, hiding any veins or imperfections on your eyelids.  It can also help you look more awake.  There are lots of brands to try, but these are a few of my favorites.  TIP: I’m no Susie homemaker, but you even make your own – click here – if you’re interested.  You should read Cara’s blog.  It’s pretty amazing.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer

Wet n’ Wild Shimmer Eyeshadow Primer

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

My absolute favorite is the Wet N’ Wild Primer.  It’s cheap and it works. It has a bit of shimmer – you don’t need to wear anything else.  Swipe some on in the morning with a little mascara and you’re off.  Perfect for when you want to hit the snooze button just one more time.  Done and done.

Seriously.  Try it.  It’s $5.

Happy almost Thursday!
