Face primers seem to be a huge hit now with the most recent release of the Make Up For Ever Step 1 primers, Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer and the all-time favorite Benefit Professional. Practically every brand has a primer to offer nowadays and sometimes more than one option – you have pore minimizing primers, color correcting ones and illuminating bases.
I can’t say I use primer that often. Maybe the reason is that I have dry skin and most primers tend to dry it out even more. But there are also moisturizing primers on the market, you would say. And it’s true but an ordinary face cream does the same job especially when set with the MAC Fix+ or a face spray – my makeup still stays perfectly on for the whole day.
Nevertheless from time to time I do buy some primers and I normally prefer primers and bases that are supposed to illuminate the skin or make it appear healthier and more radiant. I do really like the Benefit Girl Meets Pearl for its glowy texture and divine smell, the Benefit POREfessional is also an amazing option to completely erase any pores on your face, the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer is a good moisturizer and Guerlain Meteorites Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer helps to prolong the wear of your makeup.
There are definitely a lot of different primers to choose from and I wonder – do you use any makeup primers? Is it a part of your daily routine or do you tend to reach for it for special occasions only? What are your favorite primers if any? And why do you use face primers? Please leave your answers and share your thoughts in the comments down below!
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
