I was so excited when a dear friend asked me to write a post about eyeshadow primer – I am almost as passionate about eyeshadow primer as I am about brows!

It seems to me there are two types of people when it comes to eyeshadow primer – those who love it, and those who have never tried it/don’t know they need it. I can promise you that after you try it you will never go back! But that’s okay – it’s totally affordable and only takes 10 seconds to apply, seriously! And then you can kiss fading, creases, and wear goodbye!

As with most beauty products you can go as cheap or luxurious as your heart desires! I’m going to show you my favorite high-end, middle range and low-end options!

Luxurious: Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer
This is the stuff dreams are made of! At $20 a tube, I don’t wear this one daily (I’m all about bargains, remember?) but this is a great one to have on hand for special occasions, especially any time you want to create a dramatic, elaborate eye look.

Every Day: Avon Eye Shadow Primer
PROD_1147680_XLThis is my everyday go-to primer! At $7 the pot will last forever, and it’s super easy to apply with your finger. I absolutely love the staying power!

Bargain Buy: ELF Essentials Eyelid Primer
While this one may not offer the exact benefits of the Urban Decay primer, for example, it’s a great way to start out and definitely better than no primer at all! At only $1 you simply have nothing to lose!
