    This is a great base for eye shadow and upper lid eyeliner. It keeps eye makeup from smudging and makes it last longer. I can't live without it!

            I have tried to put eye shadow on without using the this product first, it doesn't blend as well, starts to crease after 5 hours, but when I use this Touch Base, my shadow looks great and lasts until I take it off at night.

                    I have been using this product for about 25 years and love it. I have been seeing that it can be worn alone. I have tried it and it looks kinda silly. Do you apply it from your lash line to your brow line?

                      You are applying it correctly, but maybe you need a different shade. We make several shades, and would love to match you with the perfect one in the store!

                      A:

                      This is an eye shadow base. It prevents your shadow from creasing. It can also be worn alone to offer a brightening of the eye lid. Uplighting is a beautiful violet shade.

                      A:

                      All of them are matte except Buff Lighting. Buff Lighting has a shimmer. We also offer lid bases such as Clinique Lid Smoothie Antioxidant 8 Hour Eye Colour and All About Shadow Primer For Eyes. Touch Base and Lid Smoothie offer more color payoff and the All About Shadow Primer For Eyes is much closer to skin tone.

                      A:

                      The two terms are actually interchangeable! :-) Touch Base For Eyes serves as an eye primer that helps prevent smearing, fading, and creasing of eyeshadow. Because it's tinted, it can also be worn alone, if you prefer!

                      A:

                      Yes, the Touch Base For Eyes can help to minimize any discoloration on the eyelids. You can wear it alone, or layer it underneath your eyeshadow for even more coverage. It also helps to extend the wear of your eyeshadow and to keep it from creasing.
