Hi, I'm Kristen Packard, and today I'm going to talk to you about the benefit of using an eyeshadow primer to help your lipstick stay on longer. There's two reasons why you would want to do this. Number one, to apply the product onto your lips to really neutralize your lip color so that when you apply a more dramatic lip color it really makes it pop. Another reason to use a primer on your lips to help it so that it doesn't feather throughout the day, which means that the lipstick starts to creep down off of your lips or go into little lines around your lips. So the two products that you'll need are an eye primer, which I like to use a nice foundation, as well as a nice lip color to put on top of your lips once you've primed them. So I'm going to take a little bit of this product, just with my finger, and just kind of dab it on my lips. That just neutralizes my lip color. Gives me a bare canvas to work with. So it's just lightening the natural color of my lips a little. Once I've done that and I have a blank canvas to work with, I'm going to take my lipstick and just apply a little on top. Because I've primed it first and started with that neutral color, the lipstick is going to stay on longer, it's going to look better whether you're eating or drinking or throughout the day your lips will always look perfect. So again, I'm Kristen Packard and today I've talked to you about how to use an eyeshadow primer on your lips to make your lipstick stay longer to make it look more bold. Thanks so much for watching.
