I needed this video, I've been looking for a new eyeshadow primer and I'm interested in the Rare Beauty, I've neen using the Smashbox 24hr eyeshadow primer for yrs its my holy grail but I'm in the UK and Smashbox is going to stop trading in the UK as of September 29th so i need to find a new holy grail primer.

I wear bangs so I don’t need to do mine. That’s good, cuz I suck at it !! Ha

Hi, thank you so much for all the tips 🙏🏻.
Does this work on eyeshadow stick like kiko’s or bobbi brown ? Or only on powder eye shadows ?

I'm getting my brows microbladed and shaded on Wednesday! I'm so excited! I watched your videos where you got yours done. I'm curious why you haven't gone back to get yours touched up. Was it not what you thought it would be?

Great video idea! I haven’t been having luck with the Rare beauty eye primer. I really like the tint to it, but it creases on me. Might have to stick with my UD primer potion.

i have oily lids and all make up creases on me. But i saw a tip once where they recommended to clean the lid with micellar water prior to adding the primer and eyeshadow, and i feel this does make a difference

As ALWAYS, your tutorials are so informative. You are definitely my #1 go to for ANYTHING beauty related. And you are drop dead gorgeous! 😍 I'm VERY MUCH so looking forward to your next neutral eyeshadow tutorial! I literally CANNOT wait! 💕😘

I hate it 😒 😑

I recently found your channel and subscribed. love your blue eyes. I have hooded green eyes and have trouble doing my makeup. I'm hoping to learn from you

I already knew you were gonna talk about the RARE beauty eye shadow primer hahahha you use it in every single video and i want to buy it now lol

Dear Angela I love this very detailed video. I love how you primed your eye lids. You are gorgeous 😍

Have you ever tried the p Louise eye base? If so what are your thoughts? Thanks for this vid!

Love how well you do these videos so up close! It makes it so much easier to learn your talents! Thank You!👍

Thank you for your informative videos. I started watching you tube and you were the first person I ever watched.💙👍❗

Do you tweeze your eyebrows or comb them up and trim really long hairs? I am quite a bit older than you and have unruly brows to say b the least????

Perfectly explained

Yes 🙌🙌🙌 I use this primer and rcma setting powder too I swear by it . Makes such a flawless base to start with . It was life changing for me and my eye shadow looks ! Thanks angela you've taught me so much !

Kelsea Nova says:

Can you compare the rare beauty primer to urban decay primer potion?

Cara Hoffman says:

When I do my brows first, I feel like I have to dodge them when I do foundation, etc. It feels like I will get foundation on them and smear into them. It gets tricky trying to blend right up to them. Am I missing something?

Heather says:

Any recommendations for a drugstore eye primer instead? Thank you for the tips though!

Milani makes a great DS priced clear brow gel. I too have preserved my brow hair but as I age they have become more sparse.

Thanks for the info 👍🏻👋🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

Tauriel Elf says:

Your eye colour is gorgeous they're like a blue/grey very 😎

J.M. Riwoe says:

Oh, thank you for this. Speaking as someone who has only been using an eye primer for around 12 months it's very useful. In the same vein, I am wondering if you would consider a video of mascara application? You generally do that off camera but I feel you'd do an awesome tutorial for this too. Thank you again. 👍👍

Was ist das für ein Primer?

What the stuff u use n where u buy them

1m0nik1 says:

Do you apply eye cream prior to the eye primer?

I have a problem with one of my eye lids, it gets oily so the eye shadow ends up moving and creasing. Don't know how to fix. I currently use Mac eye primer.

I've always wondered why, no matter how much I pack on, my eyeshadow was never as True as it was in the case. Now I know to get primer, so thank you!!! 💖
