My Top 10 Eye Shadow Primers in India

By Contributor: Mamta

Eye makeup holds a lot of importance these days, to an extent that proper eye makeup itself changes the whole look, and then eyes do rest of the talking. If you love experimenting with eye makeup and different colors then you would be very well aware of the fact that an eye shadow primer or a base is indispensable.  Whether you are a beginner or an expert in eye makeup a good eye primer can be an answer to most of your eye shadow problems. And even the best quality eye shadows need a good base to pop and stay crease proof for longer.

I have oily eye lids, and there is absolutely no way I can skip an eye shadow  primer as all my hard work and eye shadows disappear barely after few hours of application. So here are my 10 best eye shadow primers available in India, to make your eye shadows last longer and to intensify their color.

1. NYX High Definition Eye shadow Base

This one has a creamy liquid consistency, it intensifies the color of your eye shadows and seals them in place for 8-10 hours easily even for oily eyelids and completely prevents any creasing or fading. One of the best I have used so far and is easily available at Sephora India. Price: Rs 650.

2. Kryolan Eye shadow base

3. Faces Metaliglow Eye Primer

This one is a shimmery eye primer and works well with all the shimmer eye shadows and adds a nice sheen to them. If you like shimmery eye shadows then it is a great option to try as it makes eye shadows stay for really long on oily eyelids without creasing. Price: Rs 699.

4. Mac Painterly Paint Pot

5. Revlon Photo Ready Eye Primer + Brightener

9. Maybelline Eye studio Color tattoo
