The delicate skin around the eyes is usually first clue to excessive late nights and overwork, the advantages of using an eyelid primer/colour corrector are that these tell-tale signs can be easily disguised with the added advantage of ensuring the eye make-up stays in place for longer.
The Benefit Lemon Aid colour correcting eyelid primer is available online and at the Benefit counters located in selected Boots and Debenhams stores and is £16.50 for a 2.7g (net weight) compact. This product is designed to hide any discolouration and/or redness on the eyelids ensuring the ‘eyes look refreshed, frisky and ready for fun’!
This solid, yellow cream is easily softened for application around the eye area, I found it took a bit of effort to blend this product in and although it disguised any discolouration I had and evened out the skin tone I certainly wouldn’t be wearing it without applying make-up on top as it was slightly obvious that I had used a correcting product of some description around my eyes due to the fact that the rest of my skin looked dull and in need of a pick me up, although that technically shows how well the product works.
Once I had worked the Lemon Aid over my eyelids I found my eye make-up was easier to apply as it blended into the primer very well giving a more even and natural looking finish. I made a point of only applying the product to one eyelid to see if there would be any noticeable difference at the end of the day and there definitely was, the make-up on the eyelid I had used the primer on was still fresh and even looking and on the eyelid without the make-up had creased and appeared shiny showing that there are unquestionable benefits to be had from using this product as part of your regular make-up routine.
