The 1-Minute Trick for Flawless Skin
Make-up artists everywhere agree: primers can change how your make-up looks and lasts!
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!
