...says, Benefit! My new eye prepping addiction: Stay Don't Stray. I have a couple different ones that I love, but this, hands down is my absolute FAV. This primer comes in a universal nude tone that cleans up the eye area. Forget the days where girls would use concealer or foundation to even out their eyelids. Benefit has used this concept, in a non-creasing formula. The reason I love the nude tone in eye primers is because I feel it really brightens up the eye area and helps the true color of the eyeshadow to show through. Just like our face, all of our eyelids have different color undertones and sometimes the eyeshadow will change color depending on your lid-tone. In addition, it looks amazing as is, without any eyeshadow. If you are going for the natural-face look, put this baby all over your eyelid, near your tearduct and even underneath your eyes a little bit. It is also used as a concealer base to help your concealer not crease as well. A couple different lines have eye primers as well with a nude tone, but the coloring of the Benefit one is thee best. I've tried lancome and it's just as amazing of a primer, but it has a pink undertone. Kat Von D has a great one too, but it has a bit of a gray undertone. The only other line that I have tried that has a similar tone would be the Laura Mercier eye basics (which come in quite a few colors) but the eyeshadow doesn't stick on as well as this done. Make sure you do not put too much on, a little bit goes a long way.When I do use a clear eyeprimer, I have to pack on the nude eyeshadow just to give the eye area a clean look, especially on the brow bone and the tear duct next to your nose. If you haven't tried it, you are missing out on the simplest beauty trick. Give it a shot and let me know what you think! Enjoy :)
