How to make your eyeshadow last all day
If you want eyeshadow that stays on all day, you might be in need of an eyeshadow primer.
“What‘s an eyeshadow primer?” you ask? An eyeshadow primer works much like any other primer. It’s a product that you apply onto your eyelids before applying your eyeshadow, as it’s specially formulated to help keep your eyeshadow in place for longer and prevent your eyeshadow from sinking into the creases of your eyelids. It will even keep your eyeliner looking perfect all day too.

Now that you know of the existence of this gem of a makeup helper, here are some eyeshadow primers you can try (and if these member reviews are anything to go by, you’ll want to get your hot little hands on them ASAP)…
Australis Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer
“I used another brand before I came across this one, and the other brand was okay, but for the price it was a major rip off. With Australis eye primer, I find that it glides on smoothly and keeps my eyes looking just as good as they looked when I first applied my makeup in the morning. I've tried this primer for simple everyday looks to intense and dramatic night looks and it hasn't let me down once. I have taken a nap without removing my makeup, and I woke up looking the same as I did before I fell asleep. This is my holy grail!” – Trash__x
Nutrimetics Professional Eyeshadow Primer
“I am very bad when it comes to managing eye makeup as I have the tendency to rub my eye every now and then. By using this product I was feeling a bit assured that my eye makeup will last at least a bit longer than usual. And it really did. It is really gentle to use and texture is great. Thanks for introducing such a great product.” - zaraammar
e.l.f. cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
“I bought this primer recently and it is one of my new holy grail products! It is so creamy and velvety and is so easy to apply and blend into the eye lid. It works brilliant to make my eye shadows last all day and night and if I forget to put it on in my makeup routine I find I really notice the difference. Would definitely buy it again and would definitely recommend, especially at such a great price - this settles for me and I now see it as unnecessary to invest in a high end eye primer.” - lcampi10
Designer Brands Eye Primer
“I love this! I just put it on my upper lids and it dries instantly and leaves a perfect base for eyeshadow that doesn't sweat off or run in the heat. This is as good as the high end priced products just a lot cheaper. Perfect for everyday use!” - leesah07
Revlon PhotoReady™ Eye Primer + Brightener
“I've been in the market for an eye primer for so long now, and when I found this one, it was love at first sight (or test, shall I say?). It really does brighten up the under eye area, and acts as a base for eyeshadow really well. I like to use It on days I don't wear any makeup, just to conceal my dark circles. I think this is really well priced as well, considering how little product you need for each use.“ - jaslouisee
