Turn Up The Base

As Atlanta preps for a massive snow and ice storm, I can't stop thinking about spring. My fridge is stocked, my pantry is filled, and all electronics charged. We are ready to ride out this storm. In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you a new favorite product.

I know I may be behind the times a bit with this eyeshadow base but I was super duper loyal to my Mac Eye Paints for more years than I care to count. When it was time to purchase a new tube, my Mom and I were shopping and she talked me into this eyeshadow primer by Urban Decay. Since I LOVE Urban Decay shadows and liners, I thought why not. Plus, an endorsement from my mom goes a long way! It comes in a variety of colors but I chose Eden to give a nice neutral foundation for my shadows.

A little bit of this primer goes a long way and at 20 bucks a tube, I see it lasting a long time. It's creamy to the touch and dries to a nice matte finish. Following with shadows is a snap. Shadows go on smoothly and evenly with no unintentional smudging. I use this shadow palette and this eyeliner to top off the look.

If you're in the market for a new shadow primer, I think you'll love this one. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts! Already use it? How much do you love it? Have a great Wednesday, dolls and please, stay warm out there! 


  1. This used to be my absolutely favorite primer. I eventually had to make a switch (as is typical with most make-up), but when I was using it, I adored it! Maybe it's been long enough to where I can try it again!

  2. I use it and it's my favorite! It works every time, even through sweat and rain and whatever else can take your makeup off. Good pick!


Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!
