Face Primer should be part of your daily makeup routine
Most women think that one can just skip the face primer. Is it really worth the money?

A primer is actually the base for your face makeup, the base for your foundation. It blurs lines, pores and little imperfections. It also helps fight shine on your face.

Moreover, it allows makeup to go smoothly on your face and, most importantly, it helps keep your makeup last longer. You can consider the face primer your best friend when you are in humid areas.

Therefore, whether you decide to apply a full makeup or just a BB cream, you will be surprised with the magic this can do for your face. 

A makeup or a face primer comes in either cream, gel or powder formula. Nevertheless, primers contain dimethicone, silicon-based polymer Dimethicone is responsible for the smoothing effect.

Warning: Some women may be allergic to dimethicone. A patch test is necessary, especially for those with sensitive skin or those prone to acne.

Furthermore, there are primers specially formulated for specific areas such as eyelids or lips. However most of the time, a good face primer for the entire face may suffice.

Tinted primers are also great. Light pink ones add glow while light green tinted primers evens out redness.

Tip: The best way to apply a primer is by using your fingertips. It allows the formula to settle evenly over the lines of your face.

The great news is that it is worth the money and you only need a very small amount for your face. This means a tube can really go a long way. Believe it or not, the size of a raisin is a little too much already.

Lastly, do not forget to finish with a powder for an even smoother and flawless look.

Bonus: A face primer can be worn alone. It helps reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines. You can dare to go bare with a primer.

Is it worth the money? Absolutely!
