Its simple - Not to prime is a crime!
I’m a massive fan of primers. They have been a staple in my kit and for personal use for years now. I thought since I’m so passionate about them I would let you into my little love affair with them. I’m sure over time you will notice that Ill be speaking a lot about primers & reviewing some as well. So I decided to dedicate this post to a general overview and the functionality of a primer.
While primers have been around for years, they are only recently beginning to become more & more popular. It’s the unspoken hero of the flawless skin that we all underestimate. While using a primer will add a few extra minutes to your morning schedule, it can transform your beauty routine and give your make-up the natural boost it sometimes craves.
So lets go back to basics - What actually is a primer? A Primer is a transparent cream, which is used underneath your make up, acting as a base. A primers main function is to help reduce the look of large pores, filling in those unwanted fine lines & prevent foundation from looking cakey. They also help with evening out the skin tone and making your makeup last that much longer.
These days you get primers for everything – eyelids, lips & even lashes. However the face primer continues to be the star of the show.
So how do you use a primer:
STEP 1: Begin your routine by applying your moisturiser as normal.
SETP 2: Allow the moisturiser to soak into your skin & apply a little bit of primer to the area/s you are working on.
STEP 3: Next apply your foundation/ concealer and continue with your make up routine.
It’s as easy as that and I guarantee once you apply the primer to your skin, you should immediately feel the velvety texture it has against your skin.
