The Best Eyeshadow Primers For Long-Lasting Eye Makeup

Priming eyelids is one of the most important steps in our everyday makeup routines. Without proper priming, your well-planned eye look may crease, colors may fade and eyeliner may smudge. Nobody wants to look like a sad panda at the end of the day! Eyeshadow primer is especially necessary if you have oily lids. It's a good product that will prevent eyeshadows from smudging, controlling the excessive oiliness. Therefore, we've decided to round up our top rated eye primers for long-lasting makeup with no unpleasant issues.

URBAN DECAY Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original:

Urban Decay / urbandecaycosmetics /

Starting off with probably, the most iconic product in the makeup industry - the Original Primer Potion by Urban Decay. It is available in two sizes - full sized and a cute mini-version for your eyeshadow needs on the go. The original Primer Potion came a long way with many improvements but its formula is just as good as a decade ago. This nude-toned primer ensures crease-free makeup with 24 hour wear and makes your eyeshadow color more vibrant. Blends senselessly, glides like a charm and dries on the skin invisibly. What else can we demand from a good eye primer?

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base:

Smudge Proof Eyeshadow base is a lightweight primer by our favorite narcissist brand. It is ideal for both creamy and powder eyeshadows, making them appear on your eye bright, well-blended and fresh looking all day long. Available in five different color options - original, light, medium, medium-dark and dark, this primer is fortified with a deep-sea extract and dries on the lids in no time. Forget about oily eyelids because Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base won't let them shine throughout the day!


NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base for $26. Available in 5 shades.

BAREMINERALS Prime Time Eyelid Primer:

Bare Minerals / bareMinerals /

Primer Time not only prolongates the lifespan of your eye look but also brighten-up the tired eyelids, making the skin tone look even and refreshed. All you have to do is swipe a tiny amount of the product on your lids, gently blend it on the surface and enjoy the long-lasting effect. The barely-there shade of the primer won't interfere with your eyeshadows of choice and the fragrant-free formula will work on even the most sensitive noses.

TOO FACED Shadow Insurance Glitter Bonding Eye Shadow Primer:

The original Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer by Too Faced is undoubtedly an iconic, fan-fave. So the brand developed another eyeshadow primer for makeup wearers who can't live without sparkles and shimmers on their lids. Glitter Glue eyeshadow primer is a glitter bounding product that locks down glitter and shimmer on the lids, enhancing their reflective qualities. From now on, your favorite sparkling products will stay on the skin all day (and night!) long.
