Tips For Using Makeup Primer To Prep Your Skin For Flawless Makeup Application

Primers should be applied to clean, hydrated skin. This ensures primer adhesion and a smooth makeup canvas.

1. Start With Clean Skin

Choose a primer for your skin type and concerns. Primer for oily, dry, or big pores is available.

2. Choose The Right Primer

A little primer goes a long way. Start with a pea-sized drop and gently distribute it throughout your face with your hands or a makeup brush.

3. Apply A Small Amount

Concentrate the primer on areas where you need it most. This could be areas with enlarged pores, fine lines, or areas prone to excess oiliness.

4. Focus On Problem Areas

Press the primer into your skin with soft patting motions instead of pushing it in. This helps primer fill holes and smooth surfaces.

5. Use Patting Motions

Let the primer set for a minute or two before adding foundation. This gives the primer time to bind to the skin and create a long-lasting makeup base.

6. Let It Set

Once the primer sets, apply foundation as usual. Primed skin makes foundation apply more smoothly and evenly.

7. Apply Foundation

If you have various skin issues, use separate primers for each face area. For instance, you may apply a mattifying T-zone primer and a moisturizing cheek primer.

8. Layer Primers

If you're wearing makeup all day, bring a travel-sized primer for touch-ups. This can renew your makeup and keep it immaculate all day.

9. Reapply Throughout The Day
