Here is why you should use a face primer:
-Primers allow makeup to glide on smoother because the primer settles in the pores and fine lines, creating a smoother skin surface. (kinda like a "Spackle" for your skin!)
-You will use less makeup because of your smoother skin surface.
-Some primers have extra benefits such as mattifyers or sunscreen.
-Your makeup will last longer because the primer acts as a "glue" to bind the makeup to skin.
-It feels good! Most primers have a silky, silicone feel to them.
Face primer is the first step in the makeup process. After applying your skin moisturizers, allow a few minutes for them to absorb before you apply the primer. Apply your primer all over the face, as you would a moisturizer, followed by any eye or face concealor and then your foundation.
I use Stoltz Image Cosmetics on myself and my clients. Their primer is called "Retexturizing Face Primer." Another popular primer is the Smash Box Photo Finish Foundation Primer.
Next time you go the cosmetics counter, ask to try one, I promise you will never go without it again!
