get bright-eyed with too faced’s new primer.

by liza darwin

Let's face it: when your everyday beauty routine involves a pinch of blush, a swipe of eyeliner and mascara, and then running out the door, eyeshadow primer seems like an unnecessary step.

But Too Faced's Shadow Insurance Primer is a multitasking cream that works just as well for the rushed everyday as it does for big weekend nights. Following the success of the cult favorite original, the brand's new Candlelight formula has the same long-lasting effects as the first, but shimmers in a subtle golden hue.

This means that when you're getting ready for a night out, the primer preps your eyes for shadow by preventing creases, smudging, and ensuring your color lasts.

And when you're just looking for the bare essentials to get you through the day, the slight metallic glint doubles as an instant eye brightener that takes exactly 0.5 seconds to smooth on. It's the quickest fix we never knew we needed, but now can't live without.
