Prime Time: Get More from Your Makeup with Primers

Makeup Primers

Source: user Tammy Manet

I’m always looking for makeup how to tips from the pros on improving my makeup application skills (which, I’m sad to admit, are limited). One of the best tips I learned a few years back was to always use makeup primers.

For those of you who haven’t used a makeup primer, here’s a quick intro. Like paint primers, these products fill in imperfections to create a smooth and even canvas before you apply your makeup. They also provide a good base for cosmetics to adhere, ensuring your color and coverage lasts all day.

They’re pretty amazing products and have been the secret of professional makeup artists for creating the flawless faces of celebrities and models.

So if you’re ready to create a face fit for the runway, begin by adding these to your personal cosmetic counter.

Face Primer
The first face primer I used was a mineral makeup foundation primer, but they all work similarly. Usually a lotion, gel, or cream, these products should be applied after washing and moisturizing your face. The silky formulas glide over the skin and fill in large pores, fine lines, acne scars and other skin imperfections, creating a smooth and even complexion. I suggest choosing one that also has sunscreen or ingredients for treating skin wrinkles.

Lid Primer
Tired of applying the perfect eye makeup, only to have it crease, smudge and melt away by the end of the day? Lid primers are skin care cosmetics creams that you smooth over the eyelid to create a smooth foundation for eye makeup. It brightens the color of your shadows and holds them in place all day.

Lash Primer
Get ready to make your eyes pop! A must-have for every woman, lash primers condition, thicken and lengthen your lashes before you apply mascara, helping you to get the big and bold lashes you can never achieve with mascara alone. Plus, they nourish your lashes to prevent breakage and prevent mascara from flaking throughout the day.

Lip Primer
The perfect finish for every look is amazing lips. Make sure you give them the full treatment with a lip primer designed to smooth lips lines, soften roughness and grab pigment for bright, long-lasting color.
