Why would I need to use this if I'm already using the eyecolor from bare essencials?
Do you apply this product before using the eyecolor or do you use this product in place of the eyecolor? I'm a little confused about the wholr prime time eyelid primer situation.
The primer helps your eyeshadow stay on longer. If you've only used the eyeshadow by itself and had problems with the color wearing off or creasing, then you use primer to help eliminate that. Just squeeze a small dab of primer onto your fingertip (it doesn't take much to cover your lid, so don't squeeze out a large gob or it will make your eyelids look crepe-y and more wrinkly), then glide smoothly onto your lid. I also like to dab a q-tip lightly into the primer and apply right under my lower lash line to prevent my eyeliner from straying. Primer also helps bring out and enhance the beautiful colors of the BE shadows and it really helps to keep your shadow on longer even in hot, sweaty, and humid conditions. I never used to use a primer, but once I did, I haven't looked back and always use primer with my eyeshadows now.
