Many of us have heard about primer and are not sure what its exact use is.
Most of us have the info on it, but have never tried it because we felt that it’s an unnecessary investment. A few of us believe that a great foundation negates the need for a primer. But only those of us who have tried it really know its importance in a makeup routine.
Let me emphasize, it is an essential step whether it’s under a full face of makeup or whether it’s worn under BB/CC cream or be it foundation/setting powder.
BENEFITS OF USING A PRIMER:
- Seals pores:
Not everyone has large pores, but we’ve all used that annoying highlighter or liquid foundation that makes our normal pores look huge. Certain types of primers take care of that problem by sealing pores. They create a sort of blanket on your skin that makeup comes on top of, and voila, you’re visibly pore free.
