Most ladies neglect the importance of a primer, or worse, admit it, some of you don’t even know what it is. A primer is a makeup arsenal must-have that actually has a bunch of benefits. You know how important it is to stretch before you exercise; or how lingerie flatters or holds things in place to make you look best in that dress? Well, in makeup that’s the role of the primer. You wouldn't want to leave the house without your underwear or risk getting injuries by not stretching before a physical activity, right? It’s a makeup prep made to boost all the other beauty cosmetics you layer on your pretty face. Below we enumerate the six reasons we personally believe in the importance of the product. Hopefully it's enough to convince you to stop thinking twice about spending for it.
IT SMOOTHENS YOUR SKIN
Incredibly easy to apply, light, and non-greasy, primers soften your skin the way a moisturizer does. It leaves your skin velvety soft, smooth, and even glowing, which leads us to reason number two.
MAKES APPLYING MAKEUP EASIER
With your skin feeling supple and even, applying on your cream, foundation, blush, and even liner becomes exceptionally easy. Skip the part where you abuse your face with your brush or fingers because it's so hard to make your product stick to your face evenly. With a primer at hand, your makeup literally just glides onto your smooth skin.
IT'S THE KEY TO LONG-LASTING MAKEUP
Say goodbye to your racoon-eye fears with the primer. It has pore-minimizing qualities which aside from making you look poreless(!) also decreases sweating that causes your makeup to melt. It also bravely acts as a shield to other makeup erasers such as smoke, dust, and water.
NO TO RED AND OILY SKIN
Kill two birds with one stone! Yup, you got it dude. You can say tata to red spots and shiny areas with just one primer. Proven to not irritate your skin, now do you get why it is crucial to apply it before your base?
ANYONE CAN USE IT
Your skin type and skin color doesn't matter. Anyone, and we mean anyone can use a primer. And the best part is that there are no shades to choose from making it such an easy product to buy!
IT MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER
Of course, of course, the lovely primer also covers one of our most important concerns, looking young. Fierce and loyal followers of the product swear by its fine line, pore, and wrinkle reducing qualities. Need we say more?
Next time you visit a beauty counter, kindly do YOURSELF a favor, and grab a primer.
