Do you use primer? If so, do you go for a full face primer, or just an eyeshadow primer, or both? And what's your favorite?
Well at first I was using the primer for my whole face. Now I just use it for my eyes.
can you tell me what skin type u have?whn i do makeup on girls , we only use primer for skin that has lots of imperfections, dark sports and so on
I have a pretty normal skin type. But I get occasional acne, and that's when I use primer on my whole face. Mostly I use just eye primer. But when I was younger I used primer on my full face all the time because I liked how my makeup seemed to stay in place better and it made my skin look completely flawless always.
i use eyeshadow primer daily. i only use face primer when I'm going out at night where i'd probably sweat or something like that.
I only use eyeshadow primer and by far my favorite primer would be LA girl's pro primer HD eyeshadow that I got from SASA for only $9. It's white so you can use it as a base and my eyeshadow stays on till I remove my makeup!
I ALWAYS have to use eye shadow primer because I have oily lids and my shadow creases. It has to be real primer too, not concealer or a base. My favorite's are the Too Faced Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay the original one---even though I just got Eden from UD and I love it so far. I usually don't wear face primer , but if I do it tends to a primer that has a creamy consistency....like the Smashbox LIGHT primer or Sue Devitt's Blue Primer.
I always use them both, I have oily lids and my nose and cheeks seem to get oily after a few hours in a regular day, I use elfs eyelid primer/benefits stay don't stray and hourglass mineral veil face primer (:
I always prime my eyes when wearing eyeshadow. I only prime my face if I need the foundation to last me all day.
I have combination skin and depending on the day and product I may use a primer or I may not. If I'm using a mineral foundation I'll use a primer, if I'm using a liquid I actually use a Korean BB cream (specifically I'll use Skin 79 VIP Gold).

i dont use a face primer all the time cause i dont own a nice one but i hope to change that.
i use eyeshadow primer every single day. it makes eyeshadow just be amazing.
same with liner, it stays on and makes it pigmented. i use the UDPP but im running low.
im thinking of trying the TFSI next.
I use eyeshadow primer daily. And full face primer when i know i cant touch up my make up. A really nice face primer is the korres face primer. It doesnt have silicone so youll be less prone to breakouts.
I use a primer but that's mostly because I live in a tropical and humid country. I haven't started using an eye primer but I have been meaning to.
I find that using a primer for my whole face is helpful cause it keeps my make up on and helps my skin look smoother :)
I always use and eyeshadow primer. ALWAYS! I occasionally use a face primer. Just because I bought it, and otherwise it'll just sit around. So I use it when I feel like my skin needs some evening out.
Simply put: not to prime is a crime!
eye primer i use mac prep and prim(eye) i could not live without it. Starts as a cream and has a soft almost powderd finish

I switch back and forth between Bare Minerals Prime Time face primer and my Cetaphil moisturizer. Usually my Cetaphil does the trick by itself, so I don't need to spend the extra cash. I always use an eye shadow primer! I definitely couldn't do my makeup without it! In my opinion, there is no point to even using eye shadow if you're not using a primer or base, like a MAC paint pot. Your eye shadow will look so much more pigmented and last much longer!
I use Urban Decay Primer Potion for the eye, although I've really wanted to try NARS Smudge-Proof. Previously I've used MAC Paints (NOT paint pot). I have extremely oily lids. Even though my lids are oily, I have normal-dry skin. I use Bare Minerals Prime Time, but have previously used MAC Prep+Prime Skin. I've always wanted to try NARS Pro Prime SPF 30, though!
I use both daily. For eye primer, I usually use my UDPP, ELF primer or my Ruby Kisses primer. For my face I use Hard Candy's primer in the white or pink bottle or Monistat Chafing Gel believe it or not.
I only use primer for my face but i dodnt know abt the eyeshadow primer. Can you give me a good brand, that is hypoallergenic.
primer for your eyes is a must. without it, eyeshadow will crease and not stay on for long at all especially in hot weather. you don't need an actual eyeshadow primer to prime your eyes. you can use anything that has a somewhat clay-like texture. for my primers i use mac paint pot (good for matte eyeshadows), urban decay primer potion (good for shimmer eyeshadows), and nyx jumbo eye pencils (good for bright colors).
as for primer for your face, i do not use very often. when i do though, i want my makeup to stay on all day/night; i use it to make my foundation look completely flawless. the facial primer i use is my rimmel.
there is also primer for your eyelashes. usually it is white, clear, or blue (in some cases). what eyelash primer does is makes your lashes darken at the tips. (if you didnt already know, but your eyelashes are very dark at the end and become a lighter as they reach the tip. usually the tips of each individual eyelash are so light that you cannot see them, therefore your eyelashes appear shorter.) i recommend using any eyelash primer if you have short lashes and/or if you want your lashes to look unbelievably long. the primers that i use for my lashes are by Lancome, L'Oreal, and Revitalash.
last, but not least, primer for your lips. i have not necesarily heard of an exact primer for your lips, but what i do to prime my lips is scrub them using honey and brown sugar (takes of excess skin and leaves them nice and smooth, also tastes good!) and then apply any lip balm, my favorite is by blistex-lip mendex.
hope this is helpful!!! (:
I sometimes use a face primer [the clear MUFE HD one that I got in a set] but I aaaaaalwayyyys use an eye primer [UDPP usually]. Without a primer, I've noticed that my eyeshadows don't show up very well and that's sad...
i found something better and cheaper than eyeprimer vasseline! it makes colors pop!
I use mascara primer and concealer as primer for loose pigments. Otherwise, I just use the mascara primer. But I live in a very humid climate so any added products make your face melt.

Vaseline as a primer? No.
