Primer is it essential?

So come on and tell the truth, do you wear a primer for every thing?




Eye lids?

Primers for face? I do own one (prep + prime from MAC) but I hardly ever use it. Recently I bought Rimmels PRO Primer, but to be honest I hardly noticed the difference in using it and not using it.

Lip Primer? I tend to use it once a day if I'm going to be wearing some coloured lippy. I use it at the start and and then touch up the colour of lipstick or gloss with a lipstick or gloss. The only one I own is  the MAC prep + prime one.

Lashes? Simple, I don't own one and I've never been tempted (so far) to buy one.

Eye lids?
It's weird to think that I never used primer for my lids, but that was wayyyyy  before I knew about primers and paint pots etc. I just thought my lids just couldn't take eye shadow.

Too faced shadow insurance, urban decay primer potion, big bounce shadows, paint pots, shade sticks and even concealer are items that I have used to help keep my eye shadow stay on all day/ night.

So for me, primers for the lids are essential as part of my make up routine. Without them I never would have gotten as much in to make up as I am right now.

And to think it all started with a little paint pot called Bare Study...
