Eye primer is a versatile beauty product that typically has a creamy consistency and comes in a variety of neutral colors. Normally, eye primer is applied to the lids of the eyes as a base, ensuring long-lasting and virtually creaseless eyeshadow. However, primer can also be used on the lips under lipstick or gloss to prevent creasing, flaking, feathering and smudging.

Apply eye primer to the lips with a lip brush.

Step 1

Choose an eye primer that is close to your natural skin color.

Step 2

Gently apply the primer to clean lips using a lip brush or makeup applicator. Sweep the brush from the center of your lips outward, and be sure to distribute the product evenly.

Step 3

Wait a few seconds for the primer to settle and dry, once the lips are fully covered.

Step 4

Add a lip gloss for a shiny finish or lipstick for long-lasting color.
