Beauty News : Why using primers?
But then I wonder, why should I use a primer?
Well, let me give you a short list with some reasons.
1. A primer fixates your foundation
A primer is forms a base where you can apply your foundation onto.
The primer makes sure your foundation will adhere itself better on your skin so your foundation will look flawless during the entire day.
2. A primer reduces pores, wrinkles and imperfections
When you have a oily or combination skin, often your pores are shown when you apply foundation.
But not when you use a primer.
A primer gives a 'filling' layer that will avoid that your foundation runs into your pores or wrinkles.
When you use a primer, your skin immediately look smoother so your imperfections are less visible.
3. A primer reflects light
Because a primer makes your skin even and smooth, the light will be reflected even better.
It will look like your skin glows.
Because of this glow fine lines and wrinkles aren't so visible anymore.
4. A primer has a colour correction effect
There are a lot of primers out there, also primers with a colour correction effect.
Myself, I use a green primer to hide the redness my skin naturally has.
5. A primer has a mattifying effect
For an oily or combination skin this really is a musthave.
A lot of primers have a mattifying effect so your skin won't get shiny during the day.
