Problem Eyes - Primer Help

Hi, I've been having issues with the skin around my eyes, and the actual eye lid. They can get very dry and crepey (while the rest of my face can be more combo with no lines). Wearing shadows has recently become a nightmare, especially when my eyelids get super dry. A lot of eye creams tend to just sit on my skin and don't absorb, making shadows crease even more (I've tried difference application methods, but the result are the same). I just tossed my UD primer potion (it was getting old).


I'm looking for really good eyeshadow primers that are geared more towards dry and older skin (even though I'm 25 Smiley Sad ) . Or at least one that wont further dry out my skin. Bonus feature that would be helpful but not necessary include: long tern skin care benefits, hydrating, good for sensitive eyes, can be used also under the eye before concealer. And if there are any eye creams that really standout and that you feel would be helpful, suggestions would be great.


Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks,

It could possibly the eye makeup remover that your using also some have some really drying ingredients in them. Look for a more moisturizing eye make remover, Lancôme's Bi facil is a good one. Also go more to moisture rich eye creams like the Origins Eye Doctor or Algenist Eye Renewal Balm. Urban Decay is really a normally get eye primer so you could get a new one of those or Too faced also has great eye primers. Hope this helps!

I actually had to stop using eye makeup remover altogether, and switched to a gentle cleanser (which meant no more waterproof makeup on my eyes or anything that's difficult to remove). But thanks for the rec! It's like you read my mind, I've been looking at different eye makeup remover that are moisturizing & for sensitive skin. And I will definitely look at those eye creams too. I was originally planning to get another UD primer or go with the Too Face one, but wasn't sure if these are drying for the skin. Thanks again!
