WHAT IS FACE PRIMER USED FOR AND IS IT NECESSARY?
WHAT DOES A MAKEUP PRIMER DO?
The final step of your skincare routine and the first step of your makeup routine, face primer is a *can’t live without* hybrid that gives your skin a real boost. Makeup primer creates the perfect base for foundation, locking on a flawless finish. Developed in our L.A. studios for long-lasting quality, our primers contain skin-loving ingredients and are also formulated without parabens or phthalates, are vegan and are cruelty-free.
BENEFITS OF USING PRIMER
Still not sure why you need to use a primer? Discover the benefits and why a face primer is a necessary step in your daily beauty routine.
The first step in creating flawless makeup is to create a smooth base. A makeup primer can help smooth the skin’s appearance and blur any flaws so you can effortlessly blend your foundation.
OIL CONTROL & MATTIFYING
If you find yourself looking for mattifying makeup- Why not start at the beginning with a face primer. The right oil-free primer can help control oil and mattify skin throughout the day. As well as reducing shine on the skin, it can help to smooth and soften. Win-win!
Hydrated skin? Yes, please! Why not add hydration at every step of your skincare and makeup routine? Boost your skin’s hydration throughout the day by using a gel, oil or water-based hydrating primer. (Tip: follow up with a Hydrating Foundation).
Another benefit of a face primer is that it can help to counteract the appearance of discoloration and even the skin tone. A green toned primer will help to reduce redness whereas a red/apricot toned primer will reduce the appearance of dark spots.
As well as adding a highlighter after your foundation, you can also add extra glow by creating a radiant base with your primer. If you’re looking for more of a dewy makeup look- try starting with a primer oil to give a glowy finish.
Say goodbye to visible pores! A silicone-based primer can help to reduce the appearance of pores instantly whilst smoothing & refining the skin’s texture, creating a perfect base for makeup.
