to add more intensity and add high-definition. You can even tight line, not leaving any negative space in between. Plus, the in-built flexi-smudge applicator even lets you ace a show-stopping smoky eye.
Primer Cleans up Fine – We’ve all faced those untimely mishaps – a crooked line, one wing’s thicker than the other, but the next time, instead of starting all over again, just reach for eye primer.
