The Nude Eye. The Smokey Eye. The Cat Eye. Every girl loves her eyeshadow, and with so many looks to flaunt, there’s no end to the ways you can indulge in the creamy color each pallet provides. But every girl knows that nothing is worse than a color that fades, or – worse yet – color that crumbles or gathers in your crease. So what does primer do? The right primer will fix this, leaving you with smooth and perfect coverage from morning until night. Here are the top 8 eyeshadow primers you simply must try. There is elegant perfection and flawless results in every bottle – trust me.
