Eyeshadow primers have come to the rescue.  They provide a long-lasting fresh land keep smoky eyeshadow from literally melting off of your eyes.  

Not only do primers keep your shadow from creasing and fading, but they come in multiple formulas—sheer, matte, shimmer and nude—that allow you to change up your eyeshadow selections, or use no eyeshadow at all.
