Is Face Primer Necessary?

Face primers are great barriers between your skin and the makeup. If you're like most of us and got a few facial skin issues such as: uneven skin tone, large pores, etc, or you wear tons of makeup or you just want to switch up your makeup style, it’s necessary to invest in a good face primer.

Face Primers are so beloved, because they can do so much more than just make your foundation go on smoother. Primers sort of wear many hats — smoothing, concealing, protecting and prepping — their main roles are to keep your makeup on longer and give your skin a smooth, flawless finish. Any fading, bleeding or blotchy behavior that can occur throughout the day can usually be prevented with the use of a little bit of primer under your foundation (just make sure the ingredients play well together!). Better yet, many primers now are also infused with SPF, so they help keep your skin protected from UV rays while lending radiance. For application, try a priming brush that can help you evenly distribute the product all over the face.
