We all want to look flawless when it comes to putting on makeup. Sometimes we struggle to determine what is going on with our faces, and why the makeup we put on doesn’t look the way we intend it to. There are many reasons as to why makeup doesn’t look as flawless as you would hope. Skincare plays a massive role in why makeup doesn’t apply effortlessly; whether you are dry or oil, proper skin care could fix your problem. Another aspect of makeup that people tend to avoid is a primer. Primer acts as the building blocks for your foundation. Whether you have a natural makeup day or not, primer is an excellent first step to protecting your skin and providing a good base for your canvas.
Here are some FLAWLESS primers that you will love!
1. “Porefessional” by Benefit Cosmetics
The Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Face Primer Pore Minimizer is a classic when it comes to primers. It was a major hit when it initially launched! Many MUA’s love the Porefessional because of its pore-minimizing properties. The Porefessional allows for smoother pores which allow for smoother, texture-free makeup application and finish! Great for people with oily to oily-combination skin. The finish to this product is matte with a soft feel.
2. MAC Strobe Cream
The MAC Strobe Cream has been around for a very long time! This primer is universal when it comes to makeup application!
