You need to use a primer. This is the answer I give to my clients when they ask me for tips on how to make their foundation work better. Using a primer is like using a base coat before you apply your nail polish. Primers helps your complexion products work better, and improve the longevity of your makeup. They are applied after your moisturizer and before your liquid, powder, or mineral foundation.
Primers provide many fantastic benefits:
- Increase the staying power of your foundation
- Minimize the appearance to of pores and fine lines
- Control excess oil in order to maintain a matte finish all day long.
- Correct surface tone, reducing the appearance of redness or sallowness.
I love trying new primers and seeing how they work with my favorite foundations. My latest makeup adventure has been the Becca Resurfacing Primer, Line and Pore Minimizing Mattifying Formula. This primer is outstanding! I love the texture and the way it melts into my skin. I noticed my skin felt softer, and my creamy compact foundation was flawless all day. I prefer to apply my primer with a foundation brush so it goes on evenly and I don’t use too much. It is safe for all skin types and is formulated without parabens, alcohol, and fragrance.
When I applied this product the appearance of pores was erased and my skin felt smoother and more prepared for foundation.
In addition to preparing the skin so well for makeup application, this primer is formulated with ingredients that are beneficial to the skin; Glycerin provides hydration, Vitamin E is soothing and repairs the skin, and Vitamin C brightens the skin. I suggest you add this product to your makeup routine immediately and prepare yourself for the many compliments on your makeup that you will be receiving.
