What is a Makeup Primer?

Alright, let's start with the basics. Makeup primer, or face primer, is a gel or Serum applied before your foundation. Primer helps hydrate and prep the skin from drying out, and creates a flawless base or canvas for your makeup.

The Benefits of Using a Makeup Primer

Why bother with primer, you ask? Well, for starters, it makes your makeup last longer. No more mid-day touch-ups! It also minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines. Plus, it helps you with smoother texture, reduces oiliness, hydration and nourishment, and prolongs your makeup wear. 

How to Choose the Right Makeup Primer

Now that you know what a primer is for, let's talk about picking the perfect one. 

  1. Know Your Skin TypeFirst things first, understand your skin type. Is your skin oily, dry, combination, or a bit sensitive? Knowing this will help you find your primer soulmate.
  2. Consider Your Skin Concerns: Do you have some specific skin issues you want to tackle? Are you looking to hydrate your dry skin, creating a smooth base and avoiding a cakey make-up look?
