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 is one of my all time favorite products and I highly recommend it! Primer Potion comes in a variety of formulas.

Original- Dries invisibly.
Eden- Matte nude, good for hiding redness.
Sin- A Pale nude shimmer.
Minor Sin- Sheer champagne shimmer.
Anti Aging- It has blurring pigments and anti aging ingredients. Dries with a sheer layer of pigment.
Caffeine- Matte light medium brown

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 pigment and redness hiding properties. I like Sin or Minor Sin sometimes for a little shimmer. I have actually worn Sin and Minor Sin by themselves as cream eye shadow.

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 in Eden helps hide the darkness a bit plus reduces the concealer 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. It is very handy for your own personal use.

 I actually prefer the squeeze tube. It's just easier and more sanitary when doing makeup on many clients. Maybe they will bring it back. You never know. Using 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. Then, use the pointed end of a makeup sponge to smooth the primer into all the nooks and crannies.

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.

This is a must try product! It never fails me! I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
