Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

I use a primer.  I like the tinted one from the Ulta Collection.

Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

@Franklinbell   Hi. I have always found concealer too creamy under eeye shadow. I either use a waterproof shadow stick in a neutral shade or MAC Paint Pot...my shade is painterly, but many offered. It blocks out redness, discoloration.

Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

I started out using Urban Decay Primer Potion (original formula), and after a trying a couple of others, I won't use anything else. It's opaque, so nothing shows through, and it keeps the colors of my shadows truer than anything else. It only takes a tiny bit, and my shadows don't move until I take them off. I really hope it's never discontinued!

I use both. Not at the same time--use Mallys and then tarte shape tape is great. Also use BE bisque and well rested

Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

I use an eyelid primer-Miliani- in the color nude.  It's good and cheap.  I also have oily skin and this product has helped immensely.

I also have some discoloration on lids due to allergy.  I use IT Cosmetics Bye Bye under eye concealer on my lids. Totally   Hides discoloration and works as a primer.  I highly recommend it.

Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

Hi @Franklinbell 

 

I would try Urban Decay's eye primer on lids.  I donb't like concealer as much because is can crease.  I use bare minerals bisque all around my eyes and face-- it can also crease.  but have found if I use a brush to buff in the crease, it doesn't come back.

I use the NARS tinted eyelid primer. I love it, nothing ever crinkles, creases or moves. The eyeshadow color stays true!

Re: Eye lid primer or concealer

I also love this:

 

A488565

Laura Geller Spackle Waterproof Eye Primer Trio

 

 

but sadly sold out right now....again, I use the light, even though my skin tone is medium.

 

Really brightens the lids.

 

I also will use LG French Vanilla highligter as a brightening shadow.
