By Shraya, 19 Aug 2016

Embrace the Magic of A Makeup Primer

Primer, despite being one of the most integral items that every woman should possess in her makeup kit, the benefits and the necessity of this product are widely unknown. Whether you apply full face makeup or you keep it light with a few touches here and there, primer is the one thing that you need to give you confidence in every situation through it subtle and smooth touch to your appearance.

Most people, despite knowing about makeup primer, don’t understand its use or how it works and hence forgo adding it to their shopping carts. Makeup primer is essentially a base for foundation and it helps in smoothing out your skin as well as keeps makeup stay longer. Primers from different brands are available in cream, gel and even powder formulas. It not only increases the life of your makeup but gives it a more finished and professional outlook!

 

For those of you who don’t already know, here are some of the advantages of adding a dose of makeup primer to your daily routine:

1. Smoothens makeup

This one goes without saying. Applying primer not only makes your appearance smoother, but it also makes the application of makeup a lot easier than without.

2. Softens skin

Yes, make up primer gives you significantly soft skin that not only feels like a cushion of velvet but somehow appears to look softer too.

3. Seals pores

For those of you who have oily skin, primer goes a long way to fix up the unwanted shine on your skin and seal those stubborn pores that subtly scar your appearance.

4. Anti- aging properties

Not all primers have anti-aging properties, but due to their smoothing effect on the skin, they manage to wipe out fine lines and diminish wrinkles which gives your face a younger look.

5. Light in weight

Shockingly, makeup primer is drastically lighter than lotions and moisturizing cream and feels ten times better on application.

6. Reduces redness of skin

If you have the kind of skin that turns tomato red in the heat or when you’re flustered then primer is something you need to grasp and never let go.

7. Reduces the appearance of acne

Primer plays an important role in toning down the acne and pimples that may be scarring your skin and manages to cover it up more subtly than concealers.

8. Available for all skin types and tones

Whether you have oily, dry or sensitive skin, there’s a variety of primer available for you and the best part is that there are no shades available so it works for every skin tone!

9. Make up stays on longer

Who wouldn’t want the efforts of their morning makeup routine to stay on as long as possible? Primer helps you make those dreams come true.

10. Easy to apply

One of the reasons makeup primer is so popular is that it’s terribly easy to apply and upon application of a single layer, it dries off and leaves your skin with a feeling of velvety smoothness.
