  1. Primer keeps your eye shadow locked and loaded all day long. You can watch the saddest romance movie and bawl your eyes out, and your eye makeup won't be going anywhere.
  2. Primer will ensure that your eye makeup doesn't look creased as the day goes on. Your shadow will look smooth and blended with a solid primer base.
  3. If you don't want to shell out loads of cash for an expensive eyeshadow pallet, you can use primer to make your drug store eye makeup more pigmented and effective.
  4. Most primer formulas are tinted, and because of that they can be used as a light color corrector. If you have naturally darker eyelids, you can use primer to give them a lighter tint.
