Most likely you have heard of makeup primers and probably thought they were an unnecessary step or a way for a makeup artist to up sell you. A foundation Primer is a base applied after the moisturizer and before the foundation. I can say that a makeup primer is one cosmetic I will no longer go without.
Not only does it make your makeup look flawless, it seals the pores and provides a layer of protection between your makeup and your skin. The benefits of using a primer are endless, and will make you reconsider your make up routine.
My favorite Primer that I use on a daily basis is Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair Facial Primer. I love that JI475-jane-iredale-smooth-affair-facial-primer-and-brightenerher products are all natural and this one does much more than just prime the skin for makeup application.
The Grapefruit extract makes your skin as radiant as it can be. Algae extract firms the skin and helps it retain moisture. This primer is great for women with sensitive skin, but can be used for all skin types. My makeup is a lot easier to apply when I use this primer, and it has a beautiful finish.
The great things about primers are that they work with all skin types, and skin tones. There are no shades to choose from, so it is very easy to select one. Primers go on like a lotion, but there is no greasy after-feel.
By applying a makeup primer you will notice that your pores appear smaller and your makeup will stay in place a lot longer. Try a primer, and you will understand why this will be an essential step in your makeup routine.
