Why Your Eyes Need A Primer


A standard face primer covers, well, your entire face. But what about your eyes? Your eyelids are incredibly delicate and need just a smidgen more protection from the elements. Benefit has come to the rescue with their latest product, Air Patrol ($29). This eyelid primer is not only a BB cream, but it also contains an SPF 20 and shea extract. Air Patrol contains an EnviroDefend complex which helps protect lids from the elements and stress of the environment. As a BB cream, it color-corrects, hydrates and locks in eyeshadow color on the eyes. The genius applicator tip was designed to feel “as gentle if not softer than your pinkie,” and the cushiony texture was inspired by the gel foam that you find in mattresses and pillows.

Tip: You can dab a tiny bit of product underneath your lower lash line to help set your makeup and to alleviate any smudging from your eyeliner and mascara. Just be sure to lightly press some translucent powder on top to finish off your look!

Air Patrol is available now at Benefit stores, online and at various beauty retailers.
