Primers serve as a base between the natural surface and product you intend to apply on the surface. From wall painting to cosmetics, primers are needed to allow a smooth and flawless application. When it comes to cosmetics there are primers that serve for skin, lips, lashes, brows, and eyes. Face primers serve as a barrier between your skin and foundation also eliminating dryness and a shine free surface. As for skin there are two products on the market that stand out to me in quality and live up to their expectation.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer $33
This primer is a very creamy substance that allows your foundation to last long and flawless on your skin. It allows your foundation to look true to color and radiant in person and on photographs. With ingredients such as vitamins A, C, and E and Jojoba Oil, this creates a illuminating soft focus minimizing the site of pores. Dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic, this primer is suitable for all skin types and avoids skin breakouts .
L’Oreal Magic Perfecting Base $12
This was my first primer in my kit beginning as a makeup artist. This light weight creamy base leaves a matte finish allowing your foundation to last long and shine-free throughout the day. I specifically like this product because it effectively hides pores and fine lines. This primer is also suitable for all skin types, dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic.
