The Best Eye Primers

Using an eye primer is a great way to get your eye makeup to last all day and to prevent creasing. It also will keep your shadow colors from fading. But some are certainly better than others. Personally, I sometimes cheat and use a bit of my lotion face primer (Laura Mercier) as an eye primer and it works just fine, but there are some really good primers on the market that are dedicated solely to the eyes.

The article below from Total Beauty looks at the best eye primers for creating a perfect makeup look.  It also includes lash primers, which can be a great way to get a bit of extra length and thickness added to your everyday mascara. Of those, the Blinc lash primer on the list is my personal favorite. Among the eye primers, I particularly like Urban Decay Primer Potion and Laura Mercier’s eye primer, even though, as I noted, I often use the Laura Mercier face primer on my my eyes instead.

See the excerpt below for more information and click on through to the Total Beauty website to see the full list of the best eye primers.
