There is a must have item that most women do not realize is essential to their daily make-up routine. Primers prepare the skin for flawless application leaving your make-up with an effortless picture-perfect finish and even more importantly, primers give foundation and other cosmetics longevity for all day wear without the need for touch-ups.
Primer helps to smooth lines, and wrinkles and also minimizes pores making for an even canvas for your foundation to be applied to. It prolongs the wear of your foundation and minimizes the amount of foundation needed to achieve full coverage by preventing smears and rub-offs by touching the skin. You will also notice that other cosmetics last longer and have a flawless appearance when primer is applied underneath. It’s great for enhancing eye shadow as it virtually removes all creases. It works pretty much the same as paint primer. Your face needs to be prepared in the same way that a wall in your home would need to be prepared for paint by first applying primer, or the same way that your car would need primer before a coat of paint is applied. It also does wonders for women with facial scarring by filling in sunken or uneven areas. If you use moisturizers which you should, apply primer after your moisturizer and before your foundation.
Primer comes in a variety of shades. There are shades that can match your complexion as well as transparent shades with no color. Clear primer is more suitable when being applied under foundation. Tinted primer can be used to even out skin without the use of foundation as it can be worn to cover minor discoloration and light scarring. There are other benefits to using a primer underneath foundation and other cosmetics. It controls oil and shine, it moisturizes the skin and hydrates your skin all through the day. Primer also allows your skin to breath and keeps cosmetics out of the pores.
Primer is the best solution for make-up that wears out by the end of the day, and in some cases in just a few hours. Get the long lasting all day impeccable appearance by adding this simple yet power packed product to your cosmetic bag. Your face will look like one smooth continued application without creasing or lines leaving an easy unforced beautiful appearance. Use primer daily for a perfect airbrushed look.
