Basically, it's a miracle product and we're never leaving the house without it ever again. Here's all of the reasons why you absolutely should be using primer.
1. Diminishing the Size of Your Pores
Many primers are now going beyond the call of duty with formulas that specifically diminish the look of your pores before you apply your makeup. Whether you can notice your pores from a mile away, or your pores are barely visible, applying foundation has a way of magnifying those tiny little holes in your face and preventing your makeup from having that air brushed finish.
To fix this less than desirable situation, applying a primer, especially one that is designed to seal up pores, to your face beforehand will make sure your makeup has an even base.
2. To Add Extra MoistureMoisturizers are great for revitalizing your skin, but if your skin is really dry a moisturizing primer can help. Adding that extra layer of hydration on top of your moisturizer can assist even more to prevent skin from flaking, and ultimately, to keep your makeup from drying you out. Foundation has a way of chipping off if your skin is way too dry, but a moisturizing primer can fix this after just a few seconds of applying it to your skin with your finger tips.
3. To Correct Discolorations
Just in case you weren't convinced that primer is the mighty, do-all product that it is, there are many primers out there that can correct skin discolorations too. If you have acne or dark spots on your face, a primer that comes equipped with either orange or green tints (some may have both!) will work to diminish those problem areas before you even touch your foundation. This is a wonderful hack for all you ladies who feel your concealer bottle needs a serious break; correcting skin is always a good idea to get rid of even the most pesky discolorations and give skin a healthy glow.
