What is an Eye Base?

This is the fun part about makeup. Playing with various colors of bases and how they can make your eye shadows appear. An eye base is not the same as an eye primer. You apply an eye primer to your eyes first, after your lotion has set in if you used any. The eye primer makes it so your eye shadow stays put all day and some act like a base also, depending if it has a bit of color. For example, Urban Decay Primer Potion is lighter in color so it could act like a base.

Eye bases come in a variety of colors. For instance, if you apply a dark base, like black, in to the outer corners and apply a white base on to your lid. Make sure to blend it out, but not too much or you'll end up blending out the product too much Blend out the edges. Now, apply a white shadow on top of the base on the lid, blending out the ends. For the dark base, apply a dark shadow to the outer corners on top of the base. In this example, by applying these bases under the shadows you are giving the shadow something to stick to and the best part about using a base is that it can really bring out and make your shadows pop!

Now you can play around with the different bases, use a variety of colors to see what does what.
