Ways to use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I just love Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion! 💗 It is a product I have used for years to keep any brand of eye shadow from creasing and fading. It comes in a variety of formulas.

Original- Dries invisibly.
Eden- Matte nude, good for hiding redness.
Minor Sin- Sheer champagne shimmer.
Anti Aging- It has blurring pigments and anti aging ingredients. Dries with a sheer layer of pigment.
Enigma- Limited edition. A matte shade. 100% of the purchase price funds The Ultraviolet Edge, Urban Decay's global initiative to empower women.

Shop for Urban Decay Primer Potion on Amazon

I usually use both the original version, for it's invisible drying versatility, and Eden, for it's redness hiding. I like Minor Sin as well.

Not only is it a great eye shadow primer, I use it as a concealer primer on tough to cover areas.....dark circles and pimples.

Some people have such dark circles under their eyes, it takes a lot of concealer to hide them. A lot of concealer creates the possibility of caking and creasing. I find a light layer Primer Potion lessens the creasing.

A pimple is always a problem to cover. Makeup seems to slide off revealing the redness. A little bit of Primer Potion applied to the pimple helps the concealer stay in place. Eden is a great choice for this job.

This is the original Primer Potion packaging in a squeeze tube. Urban Decay has changed the packaging. Primer Potion now has an applicator wand attached to the lid.

You can still find the squeeze tube on Amazon. I actually prefer the squeeze tube. It's easier and more sanitary when doing makeup on my clients. The applicator is just fine for your own personal use.
Application Tips:

Apply a thin layer.

Use your finger or the applicator to apply the primer to your upper eyelid area.

Use a concealer brush to apply a thin layer of primer to the dark circle area.

Use a concealer brush to dab the primer potion in a blemish.

Allow primer to dry briefly.

Apply shadow or concealer right over that fresh layer of primer.
Have a Beautiful Day!
