Don't Forget Your Foundation Primer!

If you read my last blog flawless makeup starts with flawless skin, then you should know your skin type. You should also know what face cleanser to use. So after your face has been cleansed, toned, and moisturized you can start to prep your face for your base and color. Before you can put your foundation base on you must use a primer. Just as a paint primer allows for a smoother finish and long lasting paint a foundation primer does just that for your foundation. As women on the go we don’t have time to reapply our makeup through out the day. Now if you have notice that you are using a primer and your foundation still is wearing off then you may need a heavier moisturizer because your skin is mistaken your primer for a moisturizer. One brand that has in my opinion the best primer in the market is Laura Mercier. Not only is her primer water base which is better for the skin because it mimics the natural water in our bodies it will not cause break outs. Now she also has a variety of primer her regular primer for normal skin type, her oil free for oily or sensitive skin, hydrating for very dry skin and for all those mineral lover out there she has a mineral primer for you as well. So again chose wisely. You skin type is key to chosen the right product for you. For my next blog I will be talking about foundation and how to try to match the right one for you skin tone.
