Makeup Basics All About Primers

Episode 3 of our makeup basic series on our YouTube Channel is here. Its the first step of starting your makeup. A makeup primer is a cream or lotion applied before another makeup product like concealer or foundation to improve coverage and lengthen the amount of time the makeup lasts on the face.

Always remember a Makeup primer is a base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer which is a very important product to own.  

Formulas are available in cream, gel and powder. While moisturizer softens skin, and primer prepares skin for your favorite tinted moisturizer or foundation, giving it something to hold onto so it lasts throughout the day.

If you have oily skin, remember to buy an oil free primer. And remember: Face Primers are Different from Eye Primers.

Using your fingertips to apply makeup primer allows you to really work the product into your skin. It’s best to apply primer with fingertips for areas larger than a quarter. If only using for small areas, I’d recommend a brush. I like to use a concealer or lip brush for this. This spot-treat technique gives the look of a more natural finish.

Primer can even be worn on its own. If you love the fresh no-makeup look but want to look a bit more polished than when you first woke up? Primer is your answer. The product can be worn on your eyelids and double as a light eyeshadow, or it can serve as a lighter alternative to foundation if the primer is tinted.
