The biggest mistake I find most women makeup when applying their eye make is no primer. Its a key part of the whole process as you makeup will just not last the distance at work, on a shoot or when you out on the town. The eye lid is the oilest part of your whole face and unless you have a heavy duty long wearing gel liner covering that lid you need to work in a primer. I love the Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primers as they come in different shades for different skin tones and they work a treat.
The Smashbox Photo Finish lid primers (R290) are all about evening out skintone. So even if you are just working in a liner on the lash line your whole lid will be neutralized and looking absolutely perfect. There are 5 shades from white to smoke with white on the palest of skintones and smoke for the dark stones. For me I love the medium as it totally blends in with my skintone and looks like I have a little something on the eyes.
The primers ensure that weather you wear a powder shadow or a liner it locks the product in ensuring it stays on. Plus it also brings your eyeshadow colour to life. I like to apply the applicator onto my lid and then blend in with my fingers. A little really does go a long way when you use a primer so its definitely one to invest in. Its super light on application and blends right in and makes sure there is no annoying creasing on your eyes. Smashbox also advise applying under the eyes to banish dark circles and actually highlight the under eye area.
