Primers are an essential step in your beauty regime when applying make-up. It is the foundation and canvas that sets the tone for the final look and clarity of your make up. Sold in many forms, powder, gel or cream, primers are crucial for allowing the make up to be applied smoother and last longer.
One of the benefits of a good primer is that it allows for make up to stay intact during extreme weather. For example, your skin tends to become dehydrated in hot, humid, and dry temperatures but luckily, primers help hydrate your skin. Makeup stays put on moisturised skin longer than it does on dehydrated skin. A decent primer can also even out your complexion and texture of your face creating a smoother radiant look.
“If your concern is to make your makeup last all day long, this step could be crucial. Most primers act like a second skin to allow makeup to adhere to it better. They also fill in lines and creases to create a smoother, more even appearance.” – Dr. Dendy Engelman
