Product Information

  • Smoothes and neutralizes the eyelids
  • Keeps eye shadow from creasing
  • The eye color stays true

A creamy, weightless formula that helps smooth and even the complexion of the eyelid, creating a perfect canvas for eye makeup. This formula extends the wear of eye shadow, prevents creasing, and makes shadow colors more even, intense, brilliant-looking, fresh, and just-applied all day.


Cyclopentasiloxane (Cyclomethicone)
Cyclomethicone is a widely used silicone in hair and skin conditioners. As a silicone, it provides finished skin and hair care products with an excellent feel and ease of application. Additionally, cyclomethicone, like other silicones, has the ability to help deliver active ingredients to the skin and help the skin retain moisture by slowing water loss.

Cera alba (Beeswax)
Wax from honey bees provides a luxurious consistency that allows for a smooth and even application.

A silicone-based polymer, dimethicone acts as a skin conditioning agent to slow water loss from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. Dimethicone is also well known for its flow properties, which enhance the smooth application of personal care products.


How should I use Motives Eye Base?
Smooth Motives Eye Base over bare lids before applying eye makeup. You can use either your finger or a Motives Eye Blender Brush.

Why should I use a base before applying eye shadow?
The natural oils in your skin can make shadows crease or run when they are in contact with an eye shadow. Applying a base before the shadow puts a buffer layer in between the oils and the shadow making the shadow look better and stay on longer.

Does the color of the base matter?
No. Because the purpose of the base is to hold onto eye shadow color, the color of the base itself is less important.

Can I wear Motives Eye Base without wearing any eye shadow?
Yes. The base eliminates the appearance of shiny eyelids, so you can use it just to reduce shine as well.

I have sensitive skin. Can I use Motives Eye Base?
Yes. Motives Eye Base will not irritate sensitive skin because it is made with gentle ingredients.

I love this product. Gets rid of pink tone on my lids and brightens my eyes. I also found that it is a great base to cover a dark spot on my face that has bothered me for years. Love Love Love!

Comments about Market America Motives Eye Base:

I would have never thought I needed an eye base, but since trying it I can not imagine how I did not get it sooner. My eye shadow goes on more smoothly and stays on longer. I also find that the eye shadow colors are more even and true when applied after the eye base. with the eye base.

Comments about Market America Motives Eye Base:

I do not have enough good things to say about this product. True to advertisement, the base makes your shadow true to color and it lasts ALL DAY! Also, I put it over my lashes to get my mascara to stick better, it works FANTASTIC!

    Comments about Market America Motives Eye Base:

    For years I've used another product and never been happy with my eye makeup. It always smudged and creased and just didn't stay "on" for very long. Since switching to the Motives product I've found that my eye makeup looks great all day and even into the evening without needing any touchup. It's made me want to "do" my eyes regularly again!

    Creamy eye base that when applied under eyeshadow allows shadow to have more intense colors and stay all day long.
