My name is Nancy Paterra. I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles and we're going to talk about what primer is for the eyes. An eye primer is used to keep shadows on all day. If you are a bride or if you have a special event, it's a really good element to use to keep your eye shadow staying on and lasting all day. You could either buy a traditional primer and it will stay eye primer on the product or if you have a concealer at home, feel free to use that, put a little on your brush, always use a really stiff brush for this and just gently place it on the eyelid. The good thing about a primer too is it also neutralizes any discoloration on the eyelid. Blend with the fingertip. Now the lid is prepped and ready to go for shadows. That's how eye shadow primer is used. Thank you for watching.
