Hi Makeup Geeks!
You all know I love to try new makeup products, so I’ve compiled my “Best Of” series stating my favorite makeup products of all time! My top picks are completely unbiased- I simply want to help you spend your money on only the products I know are amazing. Trust me, I have tested, swatched, and worn just about every makeup product out there ;)
Enough blabbing…. On to the best eye primers!
Stila Prime Pot
These come in two shades, a lighter and darker depending on your skintone. Since they are nude in color, they can double as a concealer and eyeshadow base. These are super creamy and blend easily into the skin, and are great for hiding any imperfections on your lids.
Urban Decay Primer Potion
The holy grail of primer potions, this has definitley lived up to the hype. This remarkable formula comes in 4 different shades: Original, Eden (a matte tawny color), Sin (a shimmery champagne), and Greed (gold). These melt into the skin and leave a flawless finish that extends the wear of your eyeshadows for hours.
MAC Paint Pot
These little pots of magnificent colors come in 16 different shades. What makes these so great is they can be worn alone for a soft wash of color onto the lids as well as a primer underneath your eyeshadows. Used as a base these allow the shadow and pigments to adhere to the eye with little fallout. They blend smoothly into the skin and leave a flawless finish.
Palladio Eye Primer
This remarkable product has the same texture and quality as the Urban Decay Primer Potion and is rumored to made by the same company. This blends easily and goes on evenly and smoothly to prevent creasing. The best part of this primer is the price! It is definitely budget friendly without sacrificing quality.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
This primer prevents fading, creasing, fallout and fading. Since this is a silicone based primer, it creates a barrier between the oil in your skin and your makeup, making this ideal for oily eyelids. This allows the color to blend smoothly and evenly and gives your eyeshadow better color payoff.
