Now, that we’ve gone over cleansing and basic facial hygiene it’s time to move on to makeup. After moisturizing most women move on to foundation or concealer, but what they don’t know is that they are missing the most important part. There is one step in-between moisturizing and foundation, and that step is primer.
I have been using primer for about a year and a half now, and I must say it is definitely a game changer. It is a soft, clear gel that you rub (a little amount) into your skin. It helps to set your face up for foundation and helps your makeup to last longer. In the year and a half I have been using primer I have tried two kinds equal in quality. I began with Smashbox Photo Finish and today, I am currently using Mary Kay Foundation Primer. Both products feel like you are rubbing silky pearls into your skin. Makeup goes on easier and lasts a noticeably longer amount of time.
For Smashbox, you can buy this product in different sizes with prices ranging from $17-$49. It’s full of vitamins and antioxidants to help make skin look fresher. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and pores.
The Mary Kay primer is $16 and enriches your skin with minerals leaving it bright and flawless. It makes blending makeup easier for an even finish.
Primer is an extra step and a few extra dollars. And, is totally worth it! Add another minute to that morning routine and look fabulous all day long! Come back next week for Episode 9, foundation.
