4 Eye Bases I’ve Been Reaching For

4 Eye Bases I've Been Reaching For

ELF Eyelid Primer in Sheer

The ELF Eyelid Primer in the shade Sheer has been a favourite of mine for absolutely ages. It is a similar product to the pricey Urban Decay Primer Potion but it costs a fraction of the price. This primer is excellent if you are looking for something to really make your eyeshadow colours pop. It also extends the shadow wear time well too.

Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in Vintage Blush

The second base product I’ve been reaching for has been the Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Vintage Blush. Now this is a super pretty pale pink shade that works really quite well with my skin tone. It looks gorgeous teamed up with some nice creams and beige colours. Once you apply this and it dries, it is hard to budge. Having said that this isn’t really something that prolongs eyeshadow longevity all that well, it is more of a product for enhancing your eyeshadow shades and it can even be worn on its own for a nice wash of colour.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold

The third base product I have been reaching for and one I’ve been totally obsessed with has been the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pink Gold. This is a stunning shade that really compliments my eyes. I like to use this product as both a base for powder eyeshadows and also a all over lid colour for those really lazy days. Pink Gold is just that, it is a gold toned pink. It is actually surprisingly cool toned and works very well with my complexion. The pigmentation is fabulous and once the shadow dries it is virtually budge proof. This product is perfect for both enhancing the look of your shadows and increasing their wear time.

Along Came Betty Eyelid Primer

And the final base product I’ve been reaching for has been the Along Came Betty Eyelid Primer. I picked this up in Tesco quite a while a go now so I’m not too sure whether it is still available or not but this is a great base for creating a layer for shadows to stick to. Although the colour is a little darker than I would have liked, it works well at covering up blueness and general eyelid discolouration. What I like about this is that it has a cream to powder formula which really helps your shadow to last that little bit longer.
