Why You Should Wear Face Primer
By Andrea Fairweather, Celebrity Makeup Artist
When you think of your beauty bag essentials, face primer probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind (or even the second or third!). But when temperatures soar, it can be your best friend!
Face primer helps your makeup glide on easily and look more natural. It can even help soften fine lines, acting as a temporary “filler”. Most importantly, it helps your makeup stay put with minimal touch-ups. Here are some tips for achieving primer perfection:
- Apply your favorite moisturizer. Let it settle for a few seconds.
- Smooth primer all over your face, avoiding your eyelids. My favorite brands are Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer ($36) and Laura Gellar Spackle ($25).
