How to Perfectly Prime Your Skin Before Applying Makeup
Score a Perfect Complexion With These Tips!
First and foremost, always, always wash your face in the morning—particularly if you wear moisturizer for your nightly skincare routine. Imagine a layer of leftover residue sitting on your skin from last night’s moisturizer, trapped between your skin and a layer of makeup for the next 12 hours. Your makeup is bound to begin sliding off (if not look greasy) as the day progresses.
Next, if you have oily skin, try to avoid using a heavy moisturizer before applying makeup. For instance, I personally get oily skin during the hotter months, so I opt out on heavy cream moisturizers before makeup application. Instead, try using a vitamin C serum, which is easily absorbed by the skin and protects against UV sun damage. Remember to allow at least 10 minutes for the product to absorb before applying anything else on top!
Lastly, if you’re going for budge-proof makeup, look for a primer that works for your skin type. Silicone-based primers are good for creating a seamless canvas and controlling oil production. Keep these tips in mind, and you will be on your way to a flawless makeup look that will last you longer than ever!
