I've tried urban decay, nars, Mac and plenty other more big name brand eye primers even remedies like milk of mag and others
Any crazy tricks to make eyeshadow last for more than 6 hours on me?? Help would be very appreciated!!! Xox
It does seem like you have tried all of the greats. I have a few ideas... some are silly hear me out!
This may seem silly but maybe you are using too much primer? If too much product is applied the product is pretty useless. Just the smallest tiny amount needs to be used! :)
Also do you moisturize your face or eyes before you apply your makeup? Putting makeup on too soon after you moisturize could be the problem too as your makeup will just slip off. If that is the problem try waiting a bit longer:)!
Now could it be the shadows themselves? Which shadows are you using? It may be that some shadows just don't work or don't work well for you personally. Though if you have tried a wide variety of shadows that is not the problem. Obviously cream shadows can be very creasy, so do take note.
As for fixes I would suggest you find a primer that is a bit thicker, or just use a thick base. Something like a MAC Paint pot is what I have in mind. The Urban Decay primer is very thin and doesn't tend to last as long as thicker primers and bases. I'd also like to know what skin care routine is:) That is all I have for you as of now, hopefully I helped in some way!
