Michael Ashton, longtime makeup artist to Adele, opened up to The Cut about some of his stage secrets. One which caught our eye involved eyeshadow primer. Eyeshadow primer is intended to prevent powder and cream shadows from pilling and creasing, locking in color up to twelve hours. “Dusting powder on top of concealer can cause creasing,” he explains. “Prepping concealer with a primer first does not.” Ashton regularly dabs the primer underneath the eyes — favoring Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Eye Primer — prior to applying concealer. Not only does it make the cosmetic last longer, but the coconut oil transforms the concealer’s texture into a creamy confection.
