Primers… What do they do? Why are they so important?
It’s amazing what a difference a primer can make. There are several different types for primers.. some for oily skin, redness, dry skin, yellow skin… you name it and there is a primer out there! I have found that when I don’t use a primer, the foundation doesn’t look smooth nor does it show the pigmentation of the foundation.
If you are going to be taking a lot of pictures or are going to a special occasion, a primer is a must! You want your skin to look dewy and glowing.
Summer heat is the worst! Even the most caked on makeup drips off your face! A primer will help your makeup last longer. All of your friends will be asking “Why do you still look so beautiful on this 100 degree day? :)”
A lot of times, I have guests saying “I don’t want a primer all over my face because……….” and they come up with million different reasons why! If you fall into the No Primer category, here is a quick little tip for you! Try putting primer under the eyes. If you have dark circles, bags, wrinkles, or redness this will help the concealer and foundation cover better!
