Have you been using make-up primer? If not, then you are really missing out.
Whether you like to keep it simple or wear a full face of make up everyday, make up primer is an absolute must to create a smooth base for your foundation. Yet, many people skip this step as they are unsure how to use a it or are confused about its benefits. However, its worth your time and investment as it makes every inch of your make up last longer.
Primer formulas are available in gel, cream and powder form. While a simple moisturizer hydrates your skin, a primer prepares your skin for your favourite foundation, giving it something to hold onto so it lasts throughout the day.
Make up primers can also help smooth out any pores, fine lines or wrinkles. If you are searching for anything that cuts out the redness on your face use a green tinted primer for that smooth and clear look.
Primers are also available just for your eyelids to prevent creasing of your eye shadow. Try pairing a primer with extra long wear formulas of eyeshadows or eyeliners for the look that will stay put throughout the day.
Always use your fingertips to rub the primer into your skin and blend it well. This tip is especially effective when applying it to larger areas, for smaller areas a brush (generally a concealer or a lip brush) is more effective. This technique gives a more natural finish to your make up.
For areas with hot and humid weather conditions, a primer is a blessing for your make up. Doing this one extra step before applying your make up will save you a lot of time and effort later on, as this will make your make up stay longer on your face. Also, for that fresh no make up look, a primer is enough for you to get going. This can be worn as a light eyeshadow or a simple light foundation on its own as well.
