Eyeshadow primers are liquid or cream products that you apply to your eyelids before eyeshadow they act as like a double sided tape, gripping onto the colour. Primer creates a base to work on by absorbing excess oil preventing greasy eyelids which can cause creases throughout the day. Dry or greasy or lids without primer will loose pigment throughout the day from eyeshadows and it will also be uneven and not stay in place. Primers have different shades just like a simple eyeshadow base that also make the colours pop! So if you have some strong eyeshadow colours at home get yourself a primer or watch some youtube tutorials and get clued up !!
