Homemade Eye Primer

Eye primer, commonly known as make up base, helps in showing the true and vibrant colors of your eye shadows. It forms a base on your eye and helps you to smoothly apply your eye shadow, eyeliner and eye glitter. The absence of an eye primer eventually fades your eye makeup and it becomes greasy after sometime (say less than two hours), thus creating crease line in your eyelids. Eye primers make your eye shadow last throughout the day, without creasing or smudging and give your face an overall finished look. Since eye shadow primers are quite expensive to buy, why not prepare one at your home and enjoy all the benefits at a low price. Read on further to know how to make homemade eye primer.
