Is your makeup nearly all gone by the end of the day? We have the answer, try a primer!
As makeup artist Napoleon Perdis once said, “Not to prime is a crime!” So true! Primer is vital for your makeup to look flawless, as well as stay on all day.
What is it?
Primer is a gel, cream or lotion that is applied before your makeup to even out the skin tone. It helps your makeup glide on smoothly and acts as a barrier between your skin and makeup, so makeup doesn’t absorb and stays on all day.
How to use it
The most common primers are face and eye primers. Face primers help your foundation stay on, while eye primers help eye shadow set. Primer should be applied with your fingers after moisturiser and before your makeup.
