So let’s talk about face primers, I am sure there are many of you out there who use your foundation without a face primer. Have you ever wondered why does your foundation not last long enough? Or why does it get cakey and oily after a while and sometimes it also makes you darker. Now a face primer is like a barrier between your skin and the foundation. It helps in making your foundation last longer, reduces cakey appearance on the skin and also helps in controlling the oil.
Well now it can get really confusing as to which one should you choose, since there are so many primers available now days.
The best way to use a face primer is after you moisturize your skin, and before apply your foundation.
So here are my top 5 Face Primers, I hope you manage to find your pick :
Benefit The Porefessional – Pore Balm – This one is my all time favourite, i use it practically all the time. It quickly minimizes your pores and fine lines, leaving your skin really smooth. Its enriched with vitamin E which is really good for the skin, more over it’s really light weight and suitable for all skin types and keeps your makeup put throughout the day.
L’Oreal Magic Perfecting Base – For those who don’t want to spend too much on a face primer or if your new to it then this one is perfect for you. It creates a very smooth and silky canvas for your foundation, also it helps in making your makeup last longer. I wouldn’t recommend this for people with dry skin, it may tend to make your skin even more dry.
SmashBox Photo Finsish Hydrating Primer – For all you girls with dry skin, this one is perfect for you. It’s really hydrating on the skin, more over it will make sure that your foundation doesn’t stick on to any of the dry patches. It works well with both liquid as well as powder foundations, it immediately blurs out the imperfections giving you a clearer skin.
Makeup Forever Primer – MUFE came out with these step 1 skin equalizer, now these are formulated to even the skin, smoothen and refine. They come in 5 different varieties of primers – Mattifying, hydrating, smoothing, nourishing & Redness correcting primer.
NYX Illuminating Primer – This is a 2 in 1 primer as well as illuminator, it primes your skin and makes the foundation last longer. It also gives you that extra radiance and glow.Its perfect for those with dry skin, it can be used as a moisturizer also.The only downfall of this product is that it’s not great at controlling oil, so girls with oily skin I would suggest you skip this one out.
