Hi guys, I am pretty new to all the make up that is out there, and I just learned there was a thing called eye primer lol. This sounds really bad but could someone send me a pic of their eye shadow creasing so I know what it looks like and I will know if mine is doing it or not. Thank you.

creasing is when your eye makeup settles in the creases of your eyes. i woould say only buy primer if u wear heavy makeup if not just make sure ur not putting too much on and smuge the makeup well into the eye rather than just layering in on top – also cream foundations have a much higher tenancy to crease xJune 2, 2012 at 7:15 pm #174525
Creasing is where the shadows fade and go in a line across your lid. It’s not attractive, lol.

A primer really is essential for shadows. Even a rubbish primer is better than none as it makes the colours much more vibrant than when applied directly onto a bare lid. Urban Decay’s Primer Potion is the best one I’ve tried, and it keeps my shadows in place all day. There might be some fading, but no creasing. It is expensive though, so I only use it on special occasions, or when I know I’ll be out all day. Otherwise I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance which is cheaper on eBay. It doesn’t work quite as well, but it’s still pretty good. Benefit’s Lemon Aid is okay–it’s nowhere near as good as UDPP or TFSI, but again, any primer is better than nothing.June 2, 2012 at 7:59 pm #174527
Thanks for the responses I have wrinkly eyelids even though I am only 21 and I used NYX Loose Pearl Eye Shadow and it made the wrinkles more pronounced even though I was using TFSI.June 3, 2012 at 7:30 am #174594
I had the most luck with elf`s primer and I got it for a dollar at Target. I have oily lugs so I think that’s why I had more luck with it as it has a drier feeling to it.June 4, 2012 at 6:17 am #174675
I didn’t like the Nyx Loose Pearl eyeshadows at all; they went on very sheer and messy. The Nyx pressed shadows are much better. I have wrinkles on my eyelids, so I always raise my eyebrows when applying shadows as that makes the skin taut. Don’t yank on your lids as the skin is very delicate there. The skin does need to be smooth, otherwise the primer and shadows will sit on top of the wrinkles and look funny, so pull it gently (gently!) with your finger or raise your eyebrows until the lid is smooth.June 5, 2012 at 11:10 am #174938
Thank you for all the help! I really appreciate it
