Cosmopolitan (India) - - FAST GLAM -

When it comes to cre­at­ing flaw­less skin, there’s noth­ing pros trust more than a make-up primer. What’s that, you ask? A primer is a base you ap­ply be­fore the foun­da­tion goes on. And this sim­ple step of­fers sev­eral su­per­hero ben­e­fits—primers help nix oili­ness, fill in fine lines, im­part a glow, and make make-up last longer. As celebrity make-up artist Napoleon Perdis says on to­tal­beauty.com: “Not to prime is a crime! It’s been my ca­reer­long mantra as it helps your skin to stay flaw­less for longer.” Con­vinced? Here’s how to work a primer into your make-up rou­tine... The best primer for you de­pends on your skin needs. A mat­ti­fy­ing type is best for oily skin; an il­lu­mi­nat­ing primer helps give a glow; and a hy­drat­ing ver­sion is best for dry skin. Primer works best on mois­turised skin, so start by us­ing a light mois­turiser on your face, then use fin­gers or a make-up brush to ap­ply the primer, fo­cus­ing on ar­eas like the T-zone, where your make-up tends to wear off eas­ily. Al­low it to set for a few sec­onds be­fore ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion. Primers aren’t just for your face—eye­lid primers help your eye­shadow look more vi­brant, and last longer. Sim­i­larly, lash primers bulk-up lashes for a lusher look af­ter mas­cara, and lip­stick primers keep colour on for hours!
