We all want the sexy smoky eye, the perfect non-smudging eyeliner flick or the subtle but feature-enhancing bronze Summer eye shadow that stays on all night.
But simply applying our favourite makeup can be a feat, let alone making it long-lasting. Not all of our beauty must-haves happen to be waterproof - and not all of us want waterproof makeup to begin with (Goodbye to soft eye make-up remover, hello to scrubbing off your lashes). So what’s a girl to do?
Enter the eye shadow primer. While some primers focus mainly on turning your lids into beautiful, smooth surfaces perfect for applying eye shadow, others make your eye paint more smudge-resistant and long-lasting. Here are our top picks. © Cover Media
