Laura wanted to create a perfect canvas for the eye, just as a primer creates the ideal canvas for the face. The result is Eye Basics, an oil-free, dry formula that stays in place all day. Space NK loves it for its conditioning ingredients. Vitamin A, E and C provide antioxidant protection while aloe vera and chamomile soothe and even out skin for a flawless application. Natural clay prevents creasing and the sheer, creamy texture blends easily and smoothly, leaving a long-lasting, semi-matte finish.
Eye Basics creates the perfect canvas by camouflaging eye imperfections and enhancing the durability of your eye makeup. Skin-friendly ingredients enhance the delicate skin on your eyelids while the water-resistant formula works well with any skin tone. A must for any makeup bag, you can use this versatile formula as a primer under your favourite eye shadow or alone for naturally flawless eyes.

How to Apply
Apply to the eye lid with Crème Eye Colour Brush, Crème Eye Detail Brush, the wand applicator, or clean fingertips. If applying as primer, choose a shade close to your skin tone.
Laura loves to mix the Eyebright shade with other shades to brighten the eye lids. The opaque brightness of the light blue shade gives a healthy glow to the eye lids (helps correct purple or pink tones too).

A must of eye makeup!
The best one I have found on the market! My eyes used to get itchy and red when I put eye makeup on, but this one solved the issue! I am still searching for the perfect mascara - but at least my eyes are looking bright and I can finally use some eye pencil or shadows! Very pleased!

Need advice on which shade to get
The idea of this product creating a base for eye make up is a great one, but I needed help to choose the correct shade as there are so many to choose from. Most of the time the one I bought looked fine but it did appear a bit 'cakey' on occasions.

good pigmentation, good alone and with eye shadow
received as sample for my birthday. good pigmentation which allows you to use it as nude eye shadow (had color wheat), but at same time forms ideal foundation for your eye shadow. eye shadow lasts longer on lid. definitely recommend

Favourite eye primer by far
I've used a couple of popular eye primers in the past to limited success, finding that after a couple of hours my careful shimmery eyeshadow is a creased mess and migrating over my lids.
I use the shade 'Flax' in this Laura Mercier version and love it! I apply a couple of smudges to my lid and up to my brow bone - I have a fair complexion so this works very well with my colouring presenting a neutral tone, rather than anything too light/deep.
After a few hours there is a slight amount of eyelid shine but my shadow still looks intact and nothing has migrated over my face - a plus for evenings out or long days at work. If I ever venture beyond anything other than a bronzed smoky eye I'd be tempted to try another shade but for now, this is my go-to eyelid base.

A bit patchy
I really wanted to like this product as I usually love Laura Mercier make up, but I was a bit disappointed. The colour was good, but it didn’t seem to sit well on my oily skin and as a consequence my eyeshadow creased and smudged.
