"What Is Makeup Primer...and Is It Necessary?"

Prepping the skin is key to a flawless makeup application! Adding a primer as the first step in your makeup routine will dramatically step-up your makeup game!



What Is Primer?

Depending on the formula, primers are generally mineral-based, silicon-based or water-based. While many primers offer different benefits, the main purpose of primer is to create a smooth canvas for makeup application, while creating a barrier between the skin and the makeup. Primers also help extend the longevity of makeup!




Which Formula Is Right For Me?

When choosing a primer, it’s important to choose a formula for your skin-type. There are primers that are designed for specific skin concerns, such as: oil-controlling primers, hydrating primers, color correcting primers, etc.
