The Best Eyeshadow Primers for Oily Lids. Whether you want a flawless smoky eye that won’t leave you looking like a panda at the end of the night or just want to amp up the intensity of your cat-eye flick, an eyeshadow primer is your new best friend.
Especially for us with oily lids.
It’s time to embrace eyeshadow primers with open arms. They are formulated to help keep your makeup stay put all day, they help prevent creasing and even out the colour on your lids.
I’ve chosen 4 of the best eyeshadow primers (2 high-end and 2 affordable) for us girls with oily lids.

Urban Decay’s Primer Potion promises 24 hours, crease free shadow with more vibrant colour and smoother application and it delivers. While I don’t recommend wearing makeup for 24 hours, this eyeshadow primer will hold your makeup in place all day and dries down quickly into your skin.

This primer from NARS creates a seamless canvas that keeps powder and cream shadows looking fresh all day. Your shadow won’t crease, smudge or cake and the colour stays intense for hours.

This is another great primer for those of you on a budget. It holds everything in place and allows shadows to last longer. It also works great as a base for glitters and pigments.
