Great product!

It has a lovely colour and texture. Really enhances eye shadow colours. When I don't have time to apply eye shadow which is most of the time, I just apply the eye base because it just brightens up my eye lid. Love the effect! And the price is so affordable too.

Keep it on the lid!

When I am doing a dramatic eye look or even a subtle look I always start with the BASE! This makes the color richer and keeps the color on your lid! This is also a product that is great for dance teams, gymnasts or actors, sometimes you get made up hours before you perform and you want it to look fresh all day.

I love this product!!

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!

I love the fact that it neutralize the eyelid perfectly to a natural and neutral shade, so all the eye shadows can go on so smoothly. No only eye shadows can be apply smoothly and easily without much blending effort but also it would not crease and last longer. A must have for sure!!!


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.
