Why Makeup Primer Is Important
Believe it or not, primer is one of the steps that is most often skipped in a makeup routine. Primer may seem unimportant, but it has a purpose just like any other product. In fact, it is one of the most important products that should always be applied before applying any makeup.
What is Primer?
A primer is a product that is meant to smoothen the skins surface and prep it for the products that will be placed on top. Think of a primer as a base, similar to a base coat for your nails, a primer serves the same purpose but for your skin. It also serves as a barrier between your skin and the makeup products.
Besides that, primer is great because it helps smooth out large pores and manage oily skin. Using the right primer will help your makeup look smooth and stay on for a longer period. No matter what skin type you have, there are many primers out there that are suitable for you.
Keep in mind that there are primers for everything! There are primers for the skin, eyes, lips, and even primer for mascara! The most important primer however is your skin primer.
How to Use Face Primer.
Applying primer is quite simple and very similar to how you would apply foundation. Once you’ve applied your skincare products you will allow your skin to dry for a few minutes. Then you will apply a small amount of primer on your face and gently dab it with your fingers or with a makeup sponge. Once you’ve done this give it a few minutes to dry and continue with your regular makeup routine.
