Hi, everyone. My name is Joi, freelance makeup artist, and I want to show you all today how to make your eye shadow last longer without using a primer. So I have my brushes and I have my concealer. What you can do actually, if you don't want to use a primer, is you can put on a thin coat of ether concealer or the foundation that you're using on the rest of your face and cover that with a light layer of powder. So just to show you here, I'm going to take my concealer brush and using just a bit of a cream concealer, and what I'm going to do is just lightly coat the lid, and making sure to get down to the lash line, into the corner and out to the edge. And if you're going to be highlighting the brow bone or doing any shadow work up higher, you can continue up there with the concealer. And the key is to make it thin enough so it doesn't crease on you. And then you'll want to just lightly dust a layer of powder over it, that's going to set everything and it's going to give your eye shadow a surface to cling to, which is the same thing that a primer would do. So there you go, your eyebrows are all prepped and ready for your eye shadow look. So thank you all for watching and enjoy your day. Bye,
