The Importance of using a Primer

As a girl, such a girly girl at that! I LOVE my makeup! I'm no professional but I love watching tutorials and when I'm on set for shoots or tvcs and having my make up done, I'm always asking questions about what everything is for , the do's and don'ts etc.. 

One of the tips I've learnt personally, is how important primer is. 

So I thought it fitting to list the benefits of using a primer before applying make up whether it be BB Cream or Foundation or sometimes it can be worn alone...


Before using a primer I never thought I needed one , until I tried it and saw the difference there was without it. Here are the 8 benefits of using a primer...

1. SEALS PORES

One of the main benefits of using a primer is that it seals your pores. If you choose a liquid foundation, no matter how small your pores, liquid foundation will make them more visible. Make up primer is your solution to that because it seals your pores and basically creates a blanket over them . 


2. SOFTENS SKIN

One of the other big reasons I love make up primer , is the way that it softens your skin. It almost gives it a velvety soft effect , which enhances the smooth clean overall look it gives to your make up appearance. 


3. NON-COMEDOGENIC

Most primers (although I can't say all ) will be non-comedogenic. This means they won't irritate your skin or cause a break out. so, your pores will also benefit as they won't be blocked. So you won't have to worry if your skin is prone to clogged pores or acne. 


4. ANTI-AGEING

As primers go, most won't include anti-ageing properties , though some may include the ingredients. While they don't necessarily include these properties to help with ageing , the primer gives your skin the appearance of youthful skin , by smoothing out fine lines. 


5. MAKE UP STAYS ON LONGER 

So the main reason for using primer ,besides for the appearance of your skin looking smoother, is that it helps your make up stay on longer. Primers help decrease the sweating through your pores , which helps keep make up in place for a lot longer.


6. LIGHT IN WEIGHT

Some people are worried that by using a primer , they will feel like it's too heavy or too much, like they have a mask on. It's not that at all! 

They create a nice , soft finish to your make up. For me, my skin honestly feels lighter and more beautiful with a make up primer than without. 


7.EASY TO APPLY

One of my other favorite reasons to use a primer is that they're so easy to apply. It goes on exactly like you would apply your lotion , except it's much lighter and not greasy at all. It just provides a pillowy softness for your make up to go onto and stay! :)


8. ANY SKIN TYPE OR COLOR

The absolute best part about primers, is that they can be suited to any skin type or color. There are no specific selections to choose from, so it really makes it that much easier. 



My favorite primer by far..
