This dual-action power primer works 360 degrees around the eyes to make concealers AND eye shadows STAY PUT. Concealers don't crease, eye shadows stay vibrant & true. Contains sodium hyaluronate known to hydrate and vitamins C & E known to help fight signs of aging.

Features a "dip & dab" wand for easier application. Just a dab'll do ya!
Apply 3 tiny dots under your eyes & blend. Next apply 3 dots on eyelids & blend. Let set, then apply concealers & eye shadows as usual.

Beauty tip: Wear it alone to help even out eyelid discoloration & under eye circles...it's perfect for the no-makeup look.

    It's so easy to use and helps eyeshadow stay on til you take it off. I used it for wedding makeup which means I had perfect eyeshadow from 6am til I got home and took it off at midnight

                This works well it stays on fairly well and does not crease, I use it on my lid too, it helps the purple showing through because of age and thinning of my skin.

                  Use it to conceal birthmark on eyelid which it does quite well. Eyeshadow goes on better

                    I have used Bare Minerals 5 in 1 for sometime and decided to try this. It works just as well and can go underneath your eyes as well as a primer.

                      I love this primer! I wear it daily; really anytime I am 'doing' an eye. I wear it as a primer as well as alone when I'm doing a more 'natural' look.

                        I wear winged gel eyeliner everyday and I'm looking for a primer that will keep it from sliding off mid-day. Will this work as well with gel liner as it would with shadows?
