Eyeshadow Primer

What is eyeshadow primer or eyeshadow base?

Eyeshadow primer or eyeshadow base is a cosmetic that is used to coat the eyelids prior to the application of eyeshadow so that the eyeshadow can be applied in a smooth, even layer and additionally eyeshadow will stay in place on the eyelid, will be more vibrant and will not crease.

In order to make sure that the primer dries correctly, the cosmetic should be applied in a thin, even layer. Once the primer has dried, there is a smooth, even surface that will accept eyeshadow well and will work to keep it in place. 

Some eyeshadow primers have no color. However most of them are tinted and evens out the skin tone on the eyelid as well.
