Make up basics..Lets start at SQUARE ONE.
Primers: What are they? What is their purpose? Benefits? When are they applied? Brands?
A primer is your first step in application for a flawless foundation coverage. It is designed for smoothing out fine lines and insuring the longevity of your wear. It prepares the canvas (your face) for the application of cosmetics and allows products to go on more evenly, showcases pigments more vividly and adheres make up to last longer throughout the day. Many makeup primers cover open pores, oily skin, facial blemishes, age spots, discolorations and even scars.
Some primers contain waxes, polymers, and silicone. These substances can form a bond with other cosmetics, causing the cosmetics to have more longevity than they would otherwise. There are foundation primers, eye shadow primers, and lip color primers. I use ALL 3 primers in my daily make up routine. It guarantees I get maximum coverage, pigments and use from all my products.
The HD Primer comes in 6 color-correcting shades and one transparent shade to correct skin imperfections. The colored pigments are absorbed by the skin for an invisible correction.
An eye shadow primer that preps, brightens, and provides all-day wear.
Primer potions glide effortlessly onto the skin providing the ultimate eye prep for smoother, more vibrant shadow and all-day, creaseless wear. The original formula disappears completely when applied—ideal for the purist who wants a straightforward primer. I get THE brightest pigments when I first prep with this Urban Decay gem. LOVE it. 🙂
