A Bold Lip: Quelle Surprise!
CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation I know this is a pretty controversial product on Cherie but it suits my dry skin pretty well. It takes time to set and the coverage could be better but it applies easily with my fingers and does not get oily. Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I am not a fan of this brand’s gender essentialism or appropriation of AAVE but this product is the best primer on the market. However, if you know of a good eyeshadow primer (not UD) I would like stop giving this brand my money. LORAC - PRO Palette Soleil The shimmers are so good. They apply well and layer easily and are creamy and pigmented. I love the shimmers and glitters. The mattes exist. I guess. I don’t plan to ever try them. PAT McGRATH LABS - Dark Star Volumizing Mascara OG HG Rare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush I looooove this product. It applies easily with my fingers and gave me the perfect hint of color. It has a nice slippy texture that helps it apply very easily. Some have said this is too sheer and doesn’t build well but I struggle with the pigmentation of most blushes because of how fair I am. This blush is the blush I have been looking for all my life. It applies well and then sheers out easily in the first layer giving me the perfect glow. I took a point off for the scent which took about a half hour to dissipate. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Liquid Lipstick I, as you know, love this line. It applies well and evenly. The product is scent free. The it has a little slip but just enough to be comfortable not enough to be gloopy. It is very comfortable to wear and I love the two colors I own.

Glowing In A Flash!
CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation Takes a while to set but really does give good coverage and a nice glow! OFRA - #OFRAglow Signature Highlighting Palette This is such a great highlighting palette filled with gorgeous colors that layer well and apply easily. Best 25 dollars I’ve ever spent on makeup. Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s eyeshadow glue as long as you remember to let it set because it comes out kind of runny! ciaté - Trend Edit Palette This colors applied easily with fingers, was smooth and creamy, nicely pigmented and had a great color profile. So why the one star? I was allergic to this palette and my eyes itched so badly. I got it in my Allure Beauty Box and I kinda want my money back for this month because the box was terrible!!!! ILIA - Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Tahiti. Probably my favorite shade in this range. I love these glosses and this coral is fantastic. Very summer vacation!

Didn’t know I would love this palette!
During the holiday time, I noticed that the Urban Decay Honey palette was on sale at every store for half off. I always wanted this palette, but spending $50 on a palette was a stretch for me. I then realized that UD was doing a mystery bag, so I purchased it.. First off, I love everything I received! One of the items included was the UD Honey palette, and after using it one time I already love it. Haha. Personally, I would recommend this palette to anyone who loves a warmer/golden palette. I know for sure I’ll be using all of the colors in this palette so its completely worth having in my collection. I paired the shadows with the UD primer potion and the shadows lasted all day!

Feelin’ Blue ❄️
...during this winter Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 I played with one of my favorite palettes of all time which is the MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow PaletteI have literally made so many looks with this palette and after all this time I still reach for it often. I wanted to do an icy winter blue look so I played with the jada and pool side. The jada shade, which is the teal shade is soooo pigmented! It wasn’t chalky at all and applied evenly. For this look, I used: •creamsicle and butter with a fluffy brush as a transition shade •hunts on the crease just below the transition shade •I cut my crease with P.Louise eyeshadow base in shade rumour 2 •I applied jada all over the lid then topped it with poolside •I used creamsicle and butter on the lower lash then applied hunts on the outer lower lash. I applied jada close to the lash line •I used NYX retractable liner in white to brighten up the eyes •enlight on the inner corner and brow bone •mascara then falsies. I used HOL in Temptress Wispy Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to do a full blown eyeshadow look 💙 Xoxo, Francesca 💋

👁 No Smudge Eye Makeup 💦
The eye makeup can easily dropping of due to oily eyelids or the powder texture of eye shadow. This is why nowadays I like to start with the eye base cream - Eye primer. For the longest time, I used concealer on my lids as a primer. I also find that some eyeshadow colours that normally don't look obvious or as pigmented on my skin tone were definitely more pigmented and obvious. Some may have the concern whether we should apply primer before or after the liquid foundation, or directly apply the eye shadow? And where and how should we apply it? I want to share my experience of most effective method and products that makes my eye makeup stay for whole day. Eye primer can improve the dullness of the eyes, make the eye shadow's color rendering. It also contributes to long lasting makeup throughout the day. Generally, applying eye primer is an indispensable and essential step in the overall makeup routine. Let's talk about the steps for eye primer. Compared with skin on the rest of our face, the area round eyes is very fragile. This is also why, we need to have an individual seperate process for skincare and makep before applying makeup around eyes. Here is my recent favorite eye primer. It goes on translucent which was really a plus. And It takes a few minutes to try down and leaves a smooth finish. NARS - Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base One thing really amazing about this product is that it is also waterproof. I did wear it in a wet rainy day and my eye makeup still stay in place without creasing or smudging. Here is the few steps how I use this primer for my waterproof eye makeup - First of all eye primer, primer, and even cream-like eye primer. These products works best if you did your skincare properlly. Moisturizing works. If you have enough time, it would be best to make an eye mask -Next, apply the eye primer evenly on the eyelids, including the inner corner and even along the roots of the eyelashes since the root of the eyelashes is an important part of eyeliner which is also where it can easily get oily and smash. -Wait 3 before applying eye makeup and finish uo with some lose powder to set. Here I do not suggest setting spray. Setting spray are moisture and can easily mess up with mascaras and other eye product, and a translucent powder would work best in this case.

My true destiny: Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
Age: 23 Eye color: Dark Brown Skin Tone: Fair Skin Type: Combination, dry on cheeks and oily in T-zone and eyelids   I don’t think I needed an eyeshadow base or primer until I found that my eyeshadow would always disappear because of the “crease” on my eyelids. I asked my bestie and she told me that a good primer might be useful to prevent this awkward situation, so I started to look for good eye base products. I firstly had tried UD shadow primer which has the most reviews (almost 7.3k) on Sephora online shop, but it disappointed me as I would keep shedding tears after applying it around my eyes… I went to the Sephora in down town Santa Monica, and the sales recommended NARS’s smudge proof eyeshadow base for me. I bought it for $26 with a 20% discount.   The effect is amazing. Actually, it completely changed my eye makeup!!! This was definitely the missing piece. I bought the original color which is almost invisible when applied. It’s fragrance-free. The texture is very lightweight and it creates a seamless canvas which keeps cream and powder eye color looking brilliant, fresh, and just-applied all day. I usually sweep a thin layer onto my eyelids and blend it with my fingertips. It blends well and dries in just seconds. For me, I prefer to fill in my eyebrows in the gap, then follow with the eyeshadows. You should believe me that even in summer, you will have your eyeliners and shadows in their place after a whole day out. You can see from the pics I attached, it’s obvious that the color and persistence are both different with & without this primer.   With this lovely stuff, I never worry about if my eyeliner is smudging or my eyeshadow is moving. It “locks” my eye makeups in place. One piece could last for 6-7 months if used daily. I’ve already used up two pieces. Definitely my must-repurchase. I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS MAGICAL PRODUCT!

Natural + Dewy Beat Using New Products 💖🤩🥰
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 Happy new year all! I decided to do a natural and dewy makeup for my first look of 2021...and by natural I mean no lashes and no crazy and dramatic eyeshadow. For some this may be dramatic so it depends how you define “natural”. ...and by new products I mean new to me. Sorry that the tittle is a little click-baity 😳🥺 I got new products that I’ve been trying and loving lately. For DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS, I used: • MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid I am wearing the shade petal and omfg I am never spending $$$ on fenty again because this is the exact same dupe. Formula feels the same and smells the same •wet n wild - MegaGlo Blushlighter I love this product, however I don’t think this is a “blush”. I thought the pink side was a blush but it’s as sheer and as shimmery as the highlighter. On the plus side, this is helping me GLOW and look dewy af. I got the shade “I Met Someone” •e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I talked about this primer so many times and it’s so worth the $8! I don’t even use my high end primers anymore •e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil I ran out of my HG brow pencil (Benefit Precisely my Brow) and tried this. It’s so creamy and the quality is so good. Did I mention it’s $2 • essence - Volume Booster Lash Primer I bought this after@madisonnoonsposted about it. I used L’Oréal primer but this is much cheaper and better •NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner I used to love Colourpop liners but they break easily on me. This has a much creamier and sturdy formula. I use the nude and white shade HIGH-END PRODUCTS •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen I got the shade in dark brown and I prefer this much more than benefit’s microfilling pen. It’s much more precise and easier to use •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Pro Pencil You don’t need this. You can use concealer to clean up your brows but this makes it much easier and faster. I caught ABH’s 2 for 30 deal otherwise I wouldn’t repurchase •NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette My current favorite 🤩 I have been using this and it’s perfect for an everyday look. The formula is amazing! I would invest if they had a bigger palette By the way shout out to @cheriefor my merch 🥰 the sweater is so comfy and I love the hat! I truly am proud to be a #CherieCreator Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Eye Primer YAY 😁or NAY 😩??
I love drawing my eyeliner on my waterline but without fail I always get panda 🐼 eyes within a few hours after application. The pic taken is my eye 👁 4hrs after application and my eyeliner has not smudge one bit. All thanks to this eye primer - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eye Primer U only need a tiny dot as shown in my photo it can literally cover both eyes (trust me!). I have dry sensitive skin so I moisturise and wait for it to dry before applying this primer. Once I did my eye makeup and eyeliner I followed it up with a bit of setting power at the ends of my eye and my eye make up lasted the whole day with no panda 🐼 eyes in site. This is a 7ml water resistant eye primer has a light colour base so you do not need much product. I’ve applied too much before and my eyes were so white I looked like Jadis the white witch lol 😂. Do you have recommendations on how to stop panda 🐼 eyes - do share.... so far this has worked for me but I love to learn and try other products too!

Beauty Bay 🌙 X NikkieTutorials
Happy new year 🎆🎈🎊 I finally tried NikkieTutorials’s collab with Beauty Bay. I actually wanted to go for a neutral and softer look today so I used the browns and beautiful duo chrome shimmers in this palette. I love the formula! Mattes were so pigmented and easy to blend. The shimmers are beautiful and packs a punch. I put the shade “all in” on my lower lash and was going for a little halo but it was so pigmented. This palette is not bad for $30 USD. The palette comes with 20 shades, 2 mirrors (one is is magnified) and a beautiful sturdy packaging. The pans are also huge. BEAUTY BAY - Nikkietutorials x Beauty Bay Pressed Pigment Palette For this eye look I used: • Mila on the crease. I wanted this to be blown up so I extended pretty close to my brow bone • 5 am on the outer crease, creating a V shape • Basic Trut to soften the edges of mila and 5 am • I applied NYX glitter primer to prep my lids for shimmer. This will give more impact NYX - Glitter Primer • I applied underground on the mid lid and Mr. Tutorials on the inner corner • Ivy on the inner corner • Mila on the lower lash then layer with 5 am on the outer lower lash • All- in in the mid lower lash for a halo look • Winged liner and mascara. I used Stila Stay all day and Lilly triple X mascara • Optional but I added falsies. I used HoL in Au Naturale HOUSE of LASHES - HOUSE of LASHES Au Naturale Happy new year! I am stoked to see all your posits for 2021 Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Ultimate 2-in-1 Product 💜🧜🏾‍♀️
This is the perfect under eye treatment for any skin type. Not only does this treatment brighten upon immediate application, but has ingredients that help to illuminate the under eye over time. I would largely contribute that the niacinamide which is known to visibly brighten and firm after only a few weeks of use. Not only is this formula non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and cruelty-free but it also contains no mineral oils or synthetic fragrances. I find many “clean” products at Sephora still contain mineral oils or other products that I’m still not a fan of, but this one gets the all clear 👍🏻 My main critique is the lack of colour options. Since this product was released over 3 years ago they have not launched any new colours. I personally find that the shade range is limiting, and is almost too dark for my own skin during the winter months. Will I be repurchasing - For sure! I recommend this product to everyone I know, especially any of my friend’s mom’s since it works wonders on their under eye while providing coverage!

I should be studying, but Tatcha mail!📦📚
So I’m totally supposed to be studying right now, but I got a Tatcha package & I’m so distracted! They recently had a 20% off sale so I picked up some old favorites & new things to check out. Among them, this beautiful book written by the creator & founder of Tatcha, Victoria Tsai. I figured I why not add to my growing skincare book collection📚 #Tatcha - Pure Skin book[products]#[FiveStars] $18 -published in 2018 (available for $6 - bookoutlet.com) Took a break from studying to peek inside this beauty... The delicate, mainly watercolor illustrations by Samantha Hahn, are simply gorgeous. Only a little over 125 pages, it’s a quick read, but it’s so beautiful & full of helpful tips. Victoria Tsai breaks down the heritage, importance, ingredients & effects of each step in ‘The Geisha Ritual’ The book also discusses other elements of Japanese self care & health practices. TATCHA - Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm $30/.21 oz One of my all time favorite lip balms. The first ingredient is Squalane (derived of Olive, not Shark liver) so it’s super moisturizing. It contains beneficial Rice extracts, including both germ & bran oil. It has other nourishing ingredients like Camellia seed oil, Licorice extract, Green Tea leaf extract & Algae! Oh yes, & 23-karat gold is the last ingredient, kinda just for fun. Gold does have anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties, & even antibacterial properties at a nano particle level, but because gold isn’t soluble, flakes this large likely produce no anti-aging effects, but are also completely safe. TATCHA - Aburatorigami Japanese Blotting Papers $12/40 sheets Another Tatcha favorite of mine. My absolute holy grail blotting papers. I noticed the package is different than last time, & I know changes may have been made by Unilever, but I’ll address all those things in my upcoming full reviews of all these products. Here’s the new things I’m going to try! I’ve tried many of the Rice Polishes, but not this one yet. I’m hoping this Pearl eye treatment can do a lil sumthin sumthin for my dark circles... TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment TATCHA - Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder 🍚 Have you tried these? I’d love to know your experience! Later babes💜 back to studying lol 😝

Your Problematic Favorite
Fun, Easy, and Semi Work + School Appropriate Halloween Makeup to Do at Home #3 Miley Cyrus “Midnight Sky” single cover inspired purple retro vibe makeup. For eyes, I use a purple shimmer shade all over the upper lid. Then I go in with a shimmer wine red eye shadow along both my upper and lower lash lines, blending out a little bit. Then I use a glittery deep purple eyeshadow as an eyeliner to deepen and define the outer corners. For lips, I used a blue red lipstick with a bit of gloss on top. Then in the face, a LOT of silver tone highlighter all over my cheeks, inner corners, center of the lids, even under eye and forehead.

Say goodbye to midday creases
NYX - Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer - Waterproof Eye Shadow Primer $7 🔥Key Benefits: ● Long-lasting formula increases eyeshadow wear ● Durable and waterproof ● Transparent finish ● Cruelty-free ● Vegan formula As I mentioned, I eyelids are oily, my shadow always creases after a few hours at work, but with this primer, it looks virtually the same as it did when I applied it. It makes my makeup budgeproof, creaseproof, and increases color payoff. It works for cream, powder, and foiled shadows. I have had this product for about 2 months, the NYX primer reminds me a lot of the Tarte product BUT as much as I loved that, the NYX primer is that much better. It goes on feeling drier than a lot of these other types of primers and it dries fast! It says it's clear on the packaging but I find it to be more of an off white colour (which by the way) doesn't interfere or affect any type of eyeshadow colour that you might use. I tend to use an ivory/vanilla, matte shadow all over my lids and nothing else so I pretty much just keep it simple...I find that the NYX primer makes my lids look clean and matte..,..no creasing whatsoever! I've tested it out for long periods of time, such as 16+ hours and it's flawless... I tend to use any remainder that might be left on my fingertips and put it underneath just below my lash line...it helps my gel liner stay in place...you need very little...just a quick dab... It is long lasting and waterproof -- long days, rainy days, Miami days, beach days -- it lasts! You only have to put a little bit on your eyelid and dab it, then apply your eyeshadow.My usage tip is that a little goes a long way and to set it with some residual translucent powder before going in with shadow - it makes it much easier to blend that way. I use the NYX Ultra Pearl Mania (loose shimmer) eyeshadows and the colors POP! I have also used it to do both of my sisters' makeup and they absolutely love it.

THE BATTLE: eye primers for mature skin
Ok so as a 45 year old woman, I have mature skin and delicate eyes. I wanted to find a primer that would not crepe or appear to accentuate my fine lines. URBAN DECAY - Crease-Free Eyeshadow Primer Potion this was my go to for years. I started noticing my eyes looked dry and flakey. It was not blending well in my skin, and appeared patchy. The texture has become to think for my maturing skin. MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer this has been a pleasant surprise!! Not only is it super affordable, but it has a nice thin and smooth texture. Keeps my eyeshadow on all day. It blends seamlessly onto my eyes. This does not flake or accentuate my fine lines!! This is a WIN!!!!

{Brown Eyes} Easy Matte Brown Eye Pictorial
Do you like to wear eyeshadow that is the same color as your eyes? I sure do! I have brown eyes, and I think that brown shadow makes my eyes look so...cozy. Is that weird? LOL. Anyways, I definitely recommend trying shadow that’s the same color as your eyes. For brown eyes, I also love orange, purple, and green. I prepared a simple matte eyeshadow pictorial using the DOSE OF COLORS - Baked Browns Eyeshadow Palette . This palette contains 5 warm-toned brown shadows ranging in depth and undertone. These shadows are very powdery and very pigmented, so less is more! The formula is smooth and easy to blend. It retails for $32, but you can sometimes find it on sale. DOC has a bunch of these 5-pans, so there’s bound to be a color story you’ll like. I used all 5 shades in this pictorial. This look took me about 5 minutes total. I apply my eyeshadow first except for lower lash line prior to doing my base makeup. I have hooded eyes, so I don’t do a lot of “complicated” eye looks (like cut creases) because the effect can get a little lost + time consuming (for me). Steps: Pre-prep: Prep your eyes with eye primer or concealer and set with translucent powder or the shade “tea light” (pale cream) depending on your skin tone. 1. Using a flat or fluffy brush, apply the shade “deserted” all over your lid and into your crease. 2. Using a fluffy blush, blend “outdoorsy” into your crease. 3. Using a smaller fluffy brush, gently stamp “cherry wood” onto your outer corner, then blend slightly inwards onto your lid and into your crease. 4. Using a flat definer or angled brush, apply “rock bottom” across your upper lashline. You can make this as intense as you want! **Blend your edges with a clean brush or one of your used fluffy brushes dipped into “tea light** 5. Use a pencil or flat definer brush to apply a tiny amount of “cherry wood” onto your outer lower lash line. Blend out with “deserted” or “outdoorsy” (I used “deserted” for a softer effect. Highlight under your brow arch and inner corner with “tea light”. 6. Add mascara. Not a fan of all matte eyes? Tap a shimmer shade from another palette on the inner 1/2 or 3/4 of your lid. Other eye products used: MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer (I’ve talked about this many times) the Balm cosmetics - Mad Lash Mascara (still testing this) #CheriePartner

Pigment for DAYS!! (A Mini Review)
NARS - Soft Essentials Single Eyeshadow in the color Outreamer is one of my favorite blue eyeshadow. I got it from Blue Mercury because I was looking for something to match my dress for my anniversary. I used URBAN DECAY - Eyeshadow Primer Potionto make sure that the color popped and it did! It was amazing and came out looking superb!!! Then why did I give it 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ instead of 5? After a few days of having it, IT BROKE! I have had full palettes not do that. I had to repair it and it never came out the same as the first time I used it. I have bought plenty of these after and all have had the same result. I love how pigmented they are and how beautiful they come out but the breakage bothers me so much. I still recommend this product!

Fall Makeup 🍁
ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette - By far one of the best neutral palettes on the market. I love the powdery yet velvety quality of the shadows as well as the wide variety of shades. The shades within this palette flatter my hazel eyes, but I’d imagine this would work for all eye colors, and are so great for fall. On days where I don’t want a full eyeshadow look, I use a small Morphe brush to create soft eyeliner with the Cyprus Umber or Noir shades. I use my URBAN DECAY - Eyeshadow Primer Potion to make the look last and throughout the day, I get so many compliments—it’s a must have! Charlotte Tilbury - Lip Cheat Lip Liner - Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Collection contains some of my favorite products! The matte lipstick, gloss, and eyeshadow quad are some of my favorites and this Lip Cheat absolutely lives up to the hype. So many lip liners can be too patchy, thin, thick, drying, etc., but this is so velvety and lasts all day! SEPHORA COLLECTION - #LIPSTORIES Lipstick - I love this lipstick so much!! While now isn’t a time for lipstick/lipgloss wearing with a mask, I’m a big fan of satin lipstick and this Sephora Collection Lip Stories in the shade Oui did not disappoint. I would absolutely liken this shade to Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk, excluding the matte quality of the CT lipstick. I found this product wore very well for a satin lipstick and had a great moisturizing component, I definitely recommend! MAKE UP FOR EVER - Matte Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation - I wanted to love this powder, but I found it super drying for the current condition my skin was in. Instead of blurring pores and smoothly covering my skin, the powder seemed to deep into my pores and made skin on my nose and forehead dry and flakey. I think this product would be great for people with oilier skin. Since I’ve started to use some more hydrating products, I think that this product could be better! After doing some research, I learned that the N°7 - Lift & Luminate Powderwas not as drying and more emollient. I picked it up from Target and I’ll share my review on this soon!

Using Concealer as Eye Primer #CheriePartner
Using Concealer as Eye Primer #CheriePartner
When I first got introduced to makeup, I was taught that to make eyeshadow last longer than usual, eye primer was necessary. It’s a way to set up the canvas 🖼 The eye primer I was first introduced to at the ethical beauty shop I used to work at was Sweet LeiLani - Island Nights Blemish, Bags & More Perfector . It made a difference in how the pigment showed up; however it’s white and therefore leaves a bit of a pale residue on my eye, where I don’t end up using eyeshadow. Perhaps the issue here is with the shade available. The truth is there’s a lot of missing shades for women with darker skin complexions in the ethical beauty world, so sometimes for a novice, such as myself then, it’s easy to forget that certain products must come in different shades. It wasn’t until I watched a makeup YouTube tutorial, that I found out that you can use a concealer to substitute eye primer. Luckily I was able to find the SAPPHO - New Paradigm Concealer in the right shade for me: Caramel. I honestly haven’t gone back to the pale eye primer, which I got to try for free anyway! Check out the difference on my eyes between no concealer and with concealer, that difference is even more noticeable as the day goes on and with no concealer the colour gets lost while it stays in tact with concealer!

Best eye primer for oily eyelids
Best eye primer for oily eyelids
I have super oily lids. In summer my makeup isn't lasting for a few hours. Using an eye primer is necessary for me every single day because it effectively helps my foundation, shades and eye line last longer. Otherwise I always get my eyeliner and eyeshade stain on the upper and lower eyelids.   Before using this primer, I was fascinated by Urban Decay’s eyeshades. I have Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette and Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette. Both of them are well pigmented but sometimes slide off around my eyes. when I applied the eyeshade I felt there was no smudging or creasing but I found my eyeshade  wasn’t as pigmented as it in the morning. Then my friend recommended urban decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to me. She said that the eye primer can cover the skin imperfections and make a flawless base to apply eyeshades. I have read many reviews on this primer and finally bought one to try. I was amazed by the primer. It makes my makeup stays on the place even after 8 hours without creasing. it makes my eyeshadows go on smoothly and vibrantly. The foundation is lightweight with a light nude color. It is very easy to apply with the wand. Although the product is a little bit pricey for me, only a small amount goes a long way. The foundations dry immediately on my lids and make my  makeup blend smoothly, leaves my lid a beautiful matte finish. The foundation is also very easy to remove in the evening.  I have using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer for a few years after my friend's recommendation. it is a kind of must-have process during my daily makeup routine, especially in the humid climate. the product creates a beautiful base for eyes makeup, including lines and eyeshade, and dramatically reduces shadow creasing. I highly recommend this product to women who have an oily lid or need long-lasting makeup.

NARS vs. Urban Decay, for eye primer, the winner is...

I bought them from Ulta a year ago. Both eye primers are very hype. My eye makeup is easily massed up in summer. Thus, eye primer is a key step for summer makeup. I use it after applying foundation. NARS - Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base NARS eye base is really good. I have been using it for almost a year. It may be expired soon, so the eyes are prone to uneven coating when dry. It is a white tasteless paste, suitable for oily eyelids. After using it, the color of eyeshadow will be brighter and lasting. When the eyes are dry, you can apply eye cream before makeup! URBAN DECAY - Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion Urban Decay eye primer is a product that helps improve the color and durability of eyeshadow. After using it, I was sweating for an hour and my eye makeup was still perfect! As you can see in Pic 2 and 3, Urban Decay eye primer looks more smooth,but in Pic 4 I rinse them in the pool and NARS is more durable.   Urban has been used for a long time, and sometimes it's not easy to apply. For me, I'll definitely rebuy NARS!

MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer If you have trouble blending your eyeshadow and you use concealer as an eyeshadow base, you should buy yourself an eyeshadow primer and notice the difference in blending. With concealers, it is more like your eyeshadow is moving around your eyes. An eyeshadow primmer would help the overall makeup look waxy and its not going to let any oil through. Even if you have your mascara smudging underneath your eyes or just your eye liner smudging underneath. You should consider using an eyeshadow base or eyeshadow primer but not a concealer even you are not wearing eye shadow. A eyeshadow base really holds your eyeshadow in place. You can get that fresh and clear overall look of you makeup. Because that’s going to stop the oil from coming through and mess up you whole makeup. Honestly the best eye shadow primer ever. I have oily eyelids and this is the only one that keeps my eyeshadow in place but also doesn’t look dry on my lids.This primer keeps my shadow in tip-top condition for atleast 10 hours! I purchased from sephora and definately recommend this to anyone who wants to keep eyeshadow on longer or has oily lids. The product is also hydrating for my eyelids enforcing a smooth application and surface for the rest of your eye makeup.It comes in this tiny tube. i think my last bottle gave me a years worth of application with daily use A little goes a long way and makes your eye-shadow stay in place all day. it’s very easy to apply and blend. Also it helps you build up your eyeshadow for max color pop! recommend this to anyone it works wonders.

Is eye primer really even worth it? 🤷🏻‍♀️

I have super oily skin. I mean make up melt off my face throughout the day kind of oily. I’ve tried eye shadow primers in the past to no luck so lately I’ve just been using my foundation (which isn’t much better). During the holidays I picked up a cute Fenty Beauty set which included a mini of the FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Amplifying Eye Primer . I hadn’t heard the best reviews but one of my favorite youtubers raves about the product so I decided to give it a try. This eye primer claims it is a clear primer that not only boosts your color but smooths the lid for better blending and a longer, crease proof wear. The full size retails for $22 (the set I bought has this mini and a mini eyeliner for $24 and is still available at the time I’m writing this). Personally, I wouldn’t get the mini (and this is my only complaint about the product). My favorite YouTuber mentioned it’s hard to get product out of the mini and I agree. You don’t get a lot of product on the applicator (it’s like a rounded doe foot) so I really had to scrape to get some off. If you want this I’d recommend getting the full size. It is colorless like it claims. It’s really weird because when you apply it to the eye you almost feel a tightening effect while it dries down. It’s not uncomfortable and by the time I start applying my eyeshadow it’s gone but you do feel this weird, dry down tightening sensation almost immediately. I really like this though because I feel like this is what helps the eyeshadow last. I have super oily eyelids and everything fades, creases, or melts right off. I’ve yet to have my make up do that with this. I put a picture in (please be kind. Quarantine has not been kind to my eyebrows. I’m waiting til I can go back to work and have my brow girl wax them) of my eyeshadow 7 1/2 hours apart which is an average shift for me at work. The eyeshadow looks exactly the same as when I put it on this morning. If you have oily skin this is going to be your best friend. There is no creasing, color fading, or melting. I have an eyeshadow palette that ALWAYS fades on me immediately after I use it and I was shocked that it didn’t do it with this primer. I would highly highly recommend this eyeshadow primer if you have trouble with oily eyelids, creasing, fading, or melting.

I love drawing my eyeliner on my waterline but without fail I always get panda 🐼 eyes within a few hours after application. The pic taken is my eye 👁 4hrs after application and my eyeliner has not smudge one bit. All thanks to this eye primer - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eye Primer U only need a tiny dot as shown in my photo it can literally cover both eyes (trust me!). I have dry sensitive skin so I moisturise and wait for it to dry before applying this primer. Once I did my eye makeup and eyeliner I followed it up with a bit of setting power at the ends of my eye and my eye make up lasted the whole day with no panda 🐼 eyes in site. This is a 7ml water resistant eye primer has a light colour base so you do not need much product. I’ve applied too much before and my eyes were so white I looked like Jadis the white witch lol 😂. Do you have recommendations on how to stop panda 🐼 eyes - do share.... so far this has worked for me but I love to learn and try other products too!
