A face primer has longed become a staple in our make-up bags. And for good reason! Skincare and makeup work together to create a flawless canvas.
Primers have the power to transform your skin whilst keeping your makeup in place and looking perfect all day long.
What Does A Primer Do?
A face primer goes underneath your makeup to help your makeup stay in place and give your complexion an even skin tone, glow-boost and extra skin benefits. You can also use a primer on top of your makeup to give your skin an instant pick-me-up during the day.
Why You Should Use A Primer
If you want to achieve a smoother, radiant complexion, then a primer is a must-have in your makeup bag. Depending on the type of primer, you can get many different skincare benefits as well as making your makeup glow. As a hybrid between skincare and makeup, it is the perfect powerhouse to keep your skin looking flawless.
This makes it the perfect start to your makeup routine that can treat and transform your skin!
