Beauty Hack: Use Concealer on Your Eyelids as Primer

I’m never buying eyeshadow primer again!

Says the gal with ridiculously oily eyelids…

For someone with oily eyelids, you would think I would use eyeshadow primer every single time I wear eyeshadow. But since I don’t regularly buy it, and I don’t regularly buy it, I never have it handy. But you know what I always wear? Concealer.

I know this isn’t a new thing, but what is? I started doing this randomly one day and it freakin’ stuck. I was amazed at how well it worked with the Mally Beauty Shadow Sticks (Mahogany) softened with a dark brown powder shadow. The Mally Beauty Shadow Sticks always creases on me when I don’t wear primer. I put this shadow on early in the morning for work and when I got home I was flabbergasted to see that it was still on my lids, uncreased.

Get you a concealer that can do both! A thicker concealer would work best for this purpose. I use Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer.

So yeah, never buying eyeshadow primer again!
