Lavera Eyeshadow Base
Making it stick...
The day I discovered eyelid primer was a total game changer. Suddenly, I didn't have to worry about my eyeshadow sliding off after an hour. Actually, it often didn't even make it that far! Those of you with oily lids will sympathise, I'm sure.
Eyelid primer has been an absolute staple of my makeup bag ever since, and when I found this natural option from German brand Lavera, I bought it without a moment's hesitation.
Don't be put off by the simple packaging-this is a seriously good product! A squeeze the size of a water droplet is all it takes to cover both eyelids generously. I give it a minute or so to fully dry before applying my eyeshadow. The base makes it glide on evenly and smoothly, and once it's on, it stays put for hours and hours; I've found it lasts for at least six hours before even beginning to show signs of wear, and almost eight by the time the eyeshadow begins to collect in the eyelid creases.
Safe to say, I'm nothing short of amazed at this product! I hadn't expected anything like that much wear time; my last (non-organic) eyelid primer only held my eye makeup in place for a couple of hours at most. I never imagined that this would keep my makeup looking as fresh as the moment I applied it for the majority of the day. I wouldn't even consider applying my eye makeup without it now, it really is a wonder product as far as I'm concerned!
Does eyelid primer have a place in your makeup bag?
