Favorite Files – Eyelid Primer

I spent over 5 years at a corporate job, so I’m all too familiar with desk sitting, fluorescent lighting, and fighting the urge to nap at 3. Since I’m not a coffee drinker, I’d usually try to get up and move some once the afternoon slump hit. I’d visit my co-workers (Hi Carly!), grab some water from the kitchen, and walk to the bathroom to see what my hair had decided to do since I last brushed it. (It really does it’s own thing.) And then,
the dreaded mascara smudge.
That little black line running all along the crease of my eyelid. It made me look tired (which I was) and just a little (more) unkempt.  I’d try to rub the smudge off which usually just pulled off my eye shadow.  Fail.
And then I tried a primer.

Prime Time Brightening Eye Primer in Pearl

I wear this every single day. After I put on moisturizer my next step is to take a tiny dab on each eyelid and spread from lid to under my brow bone. This adds the tiniest bit of sheen so you can wear it alone, or under your eye shadow.  Not only does it intensify your eye shadow color and make it last all day, it protects against mascara smudge. (Which I’m not entirely sure how it works, but it does.)
The brand I use costs about $18 from Sephora but it lasts a really long time (you don’t need to use very much). And I love it! Almost as much as I love not having a corporate job!
