Makeup primer has grown in importance over the past few years. On the contrary, I have noticed that many upcoming makeup artists and people who do their make up skip this stage completely. Most people are unsure of what it is, what purpose it serves, and how to apply it to their make up routine. Luckily, I have demystified the issue in this article, go ahead give it a try.
Think of primer as a preparation on your skin before the work of art is done. The first thing to do would be to wash your face clean of all impurities, moisturize with your daily moisturizer and wait for it to set into the skin before applying the primer.
What is a primer?
Makeup primer may come in the form of a cream, liquid, or gel. You can choose according to your preference and skin type and your goals for your skin. Primer might be slightly tinted to suit the shade of your skin (you can actually wear this on its own if you don’t want to wear any makeup or be absolutely clear. There is a primer for the whole face and there are primers for eyes. Primers for eyes are most likely not tinted.
