Mac Paint Pot

Hello People!
Is using an eyeshadow primer important? Is there a need to spend a whole lot of money behind this primer?

Well the answer is yes and no. :-D

We will start with the yes part, eyeshadow primer can be important if you have really oily skin which can make your cream shadows to crease and at times when the eyeshadows just won’t show up or won’t stay long no matter how much you layer it.
I have to use it cuz my eyelids are very dark compared to my face skin and the eyeshadows just don’t show up on my skin.
I use MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. It perfectly matches my skin tone.

After applying the paint pot the eyeshadows suddenly just pop up on my eyes.
I sometimes use it with the concealer for my under eyes to give that instant brightness.
Well with the no part, good concealers and foundations can also do the trick if we just want the shadows not to crease.
And if you are just starting to use the makeup, you can skip the primer and use a concealer.
