The Perfect Way To Apply Your Primer


A primer helps to create an extra layer between your skin and makeup. When you’re spending your time and effort to do your makeup, it’s important to keep it insured, and primer, my friends, is that insurance. Whether you want to smoothen your skin’s surface, even out your skin tone, or cover large pores and fine lines, a primer takes care of all these jobs for you.

If you’ve seen primers at makeup counters, but never really thought that this extra step makes any difference, then think again. You do need the extra expense of a primer and adding this tiny step to your makeup routine makes a world of a difference.
You’ll never fully understand this until you’ve tried it. What attracted me was the fact that it combines the benefits of both cosmetics and skin care. No matter what skin struggles you’re experiencing, there’s a primer made for it, and it helps treat them while holding your look together.

1. Prep Your Skin



This step is crucial if you want your makeup to look flawless. Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face, exfoliate and apply a lightweight moisturizer before anything else. Let it sink into your skin.

2. Applying Your Primer

Take a small amount of your primer at the back of your hand, and simply apply it with your fingertips, blending from the nose outwards. Once it’s fully blended, your skin will look more even-toned and luminous, and your foundation will sit better. Wait a few minutes after application, before you go in with your foundation, to allow the primer to sink in and create a smooth surface. You can also use the primer alone without any foundation if you want to keep it simple.

How To Choose A Primer For My Skin Type?

Make sure you understand your skin type before heading out to buy a primer because you don’t want to pick out the wrong one for your skin. Here’s how you can do that.

  • If you have dry or flaky skin, choose a hydrating primer. Look for words like “soothing,” “hydrating,” and “replenishing.”
  • If your skin is oily, use a mattifying primer to reduce your skin’s oil production and minimize shine.
  • If you have acne-prone or very sensitive skin, opt for water-based primers because silicone-based ones may clog pores and cause breakouts or irritation.
  • Use a primer with nourishing ingredients and one that’s infused with antioxidants for mature or aging skin.
