Why To Apply Primer Before Makeup

Makeup primer is a base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer. Primer is a life-saver for getting your makeup to stay-put in extreme weather. Here are few reasons why you should use a primer first before applying your make up.

Softens skin: Makeup primer softens the skin. It seems to make it velvety soft, which enhances the smooth effect it has on your makeup appearance.

Some makeup primers are non-comedogenic: This means they won’t break your face out or irritate your skin. They also won’t clog pores at all for this reason, so don’t worry if your skin is prone to clogged pores or acne.

Makes make up stay longer: The major reason for using a primer is to help makeup stay on longer. It helps to decrease sweating through the pores and also acts as a natural shield for dust, water and debris that might make your makeup wear off.

Evens skin tone: Buy primers that are specially made to even skin tones. There are primers available that are purple tinted, to cancel out yellow tones and others that are green tinted, to cancel out redness.

Conceal pores: One of the main benefits of using a makeup primer is that it seals your pores, no matter how small your pores are, liquid foundation can make them more visible. Makeup primer takes care of all that by sealing pores and creating almost a cover over them.
