I'm learning something new about makeup every day! I have a new found love for makeup and a desire to acquire more & more! I've been watching tutorials, and making wish lists~
I've never been one to use a primer. I thought that primers were just for professionals, makeup gurus, & perfectionists. Boy did I get a funny look from my friends when I told them I don't use primer!
So I decided to try Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It came highly recommended from Erin & Eden, and it had tons of great reviews.
I used it yesterday for the first time (these pictures aren't the greatest, I didn't have a lot of time yesterday):

I've been using Covergirl's Dance Party Eyeshadow Palette for years to do my everyday makeup for school & work. It usually disappears after an hour or two, leaving only a little bit of shimmer.
Yesterday was very hot and humid. I went to class for a few hours, then went to work where I was sweating my ass off the entire time. I hopped on a train right after work and went to a concert (Terrible Things, Story of the Year, and Anberlin - AWESOME show!! ) where I jumped around, danced, and sang my heart out for hours.
I came home a little after 11PM and looked into the mirror to see that my hair was completely dead, but my eyeshadow was still there!!
Not only did it stay put all day without creasing, the color of the eyeshadow was more vibrant than I've ever seen (it doesn't really show up in the photos though)! Even Mike noticed a difference~
So now I am definitely a firm believer in primer. It really works!
I've decided to put a ban on myself buying clothes~ (okay, there's still one more order from Zipia that I'm waiting on...but after that I'm done for a while!) Instead, I'm gonna work on building my makeup collection. I'm obsessed!
