How to Apply Makeup Primers:
Makeup primer smoothes and perfects the surface of the skin.
The product fills in fine lines and pores, as well as evens out skin texture,
allowing for a long-lasting foundation and a more perfect complexion.
Choose either a clear or tinted primer. If you select a tinted one,
try to match it to your skin tone. Corrective primers help camouflage
skin blemishes (green primer, for instance, offsets redness).
Apply moisturizer as you would normally. Use one that has sunscreen
and anti-aging components, since most primers are lighter in texture
than moisturizer and don't contain these ingredients.
Allow it a minute to penetrate your skin.
Pour a little primer onto the back of your hand to warm it.
Gently dab a makeup sponge into it and apply the primer to your face,
lightly patting it all over. Blend it gently with the sponge and allow it to sink in.
Put on your foundation and makeup as you would normally
after the primer has set.
*Heavy moisturizer may cause your makeup to slide off during the day.
Use a lighter daytime moisturizer along with primer for an all-day smooth finish.
*Men can use primer as an aftershave to help reduce irritation and redness
and achieve a flawless finish without having to apply foundation.
