5 reasons why you should never skip applying primer on the eyelids

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’d know the importance of an eye primer in a beauty routine. From creating a smooth base to apply your makeup and holding your eyeshadow in place for hours (without creasing) — an eye primer forms an indispensable part of your makeup kit.

Need more convincing? Well, here is a list of reasons why you need to apply a primer to your eyelids as well…


01. Ensures smoother eyeshadow application

05. Makes the colour pop

There is no denying the fact that the skin on and around your eyes is super thin and delicate. Applying eyeshadow can pull and tug at this delicate skin, leading to premature fine lines and wrinkles. But wearing an eyeshadow primer helps the eyeshadow to glide on smoothly; thereby minimizing pulling and tugging.


02. Makes eyeshadow blending a breeze

05. Makes the colour pop

If you find that your eyeshadows don’t blend very easily and the final look always turns out to be patchy, then you need to start using an eye primer STAT. This is because eye primers create a smooth and even canvas that makes blending the shadows very easy, giving you a beautiful, even finish.


03. Prevents creasing

05. Makes the colour pop

A lot of times, few hours after wearing your eye makeup, you realise that it has started to crease and looks super unappealing. The easiest solution to this very common problem is eye primer. Since this product helps create a smoother canvas, it works like a dream to prevent creasing.


04. Makes your eye makeup last long

05. Makes the colour pop

Just like a normal primer helps to increase the longevity of your makeup wear time, an eye primer does essentially the same thing. By creating a film between your makeup and skin, it prevents dirt, oil and sweat from touching your eye makeup, thereby making it last all day long.


05. Makes the colour pop

05. Makes the colour pop

A lot of times, the eyeshadow colours look vibrant when swatched and the moment you apply them on your lids — meh! This is because eyelids have a little more discolouration, which prevents the colour from popping. But applying a thin layer of primer helps to solve this issue as it evens out the skin and reduces imperfections to make the colour pop and instantly brighten up your eyes.
