Ready, Set, Prep: The Best Makeup Primers For Your Eyes, Lips, & Face

As the ultimate makeup junkie, I have a tough time saying no to a new shadow shade, lip color, or nail hue... and it certainly shows in my inability to organize it all. But now that my makeup collection has successfully taken over every drawer, zip case, surface, nook and cranny of my humble abode, I'm starting to resist the urge to buy more and more pots of colors that I'll probably never use more than once. Instead, I've narrowed my focus to scouting out the newest and best priming products that can help make the most of the colors I already have for easy application, flawless appearance, and maximum smudge-free wear all day long. I love the way Smashbox's face primer gives my skin a smoother, even tone and a less oily-looking complexion under my powder, and now that I've tried Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer potion, I can't understand how I lived without it in the first place! Designed to target specific problem areas like the appearance of pores, uneven redness, or runny eyes, today's best primers are bound to keep your makeup in check and have you looking like a million bucks, even with the same shades you already have! Check the slideshow to see a slew of splurge-worthy products that can help keep your makeup in place on your eyes, lips, lashes, and face!
