Do you use a primer? GOOD! Is it a good primer? Hmm…not sure? Here is what to look for in a good primer and why you NEED a primer in your makeup bag! Not even sure what a primer is?? Keep reading!
First let’s review what a primer actually does for your makeup routine. 1 – Primer creates a smooth surface on your face (fills in fine lines and pores) and helps your makeup stay put all day. 2 – Primer creates a protective barrier over your skin, so it helps seal in any treatment products you used in your daily skincare routine. 3 – Primer helps with dryness and oiliness.
So what do you need to look for in a good primer? Ask yourself these three questions. 1 – What are the ingredients? Does it contain any harmful chemicals? 2 – Does it keep your foundation looking fresh and flawless all day? 3 – Do you need to use a lot of product to get the results you’re looking for?
The bottom line is…primer is important! It keeps your makeup from sliding off, protects your skin and keeps you looking great all day! My favorite primer is Glorious Face & Eye Primer. I only need a tiny bit (about the size of a pea) for my whole face. Since I started using Glorious Primer my foundation stays fresh and flawless all day long! No touch ups required!
Glamlashluv Tip – Apply your primer and let it “set” for about 5 minutes before applying foundation to get the best results!
