(We’re finally getting a few ‘Belif Nose Balm’, arriving late this week – so if any of your favorite methods aren’t working, then keep an eye on this arrival.)
Today’s topic continues ‘Pores’ and it’s about the primer. Our sebums are continuously producing and weather is getting hotter, so we need to control excess sebum & oils by using a primer. Another reason for this is it helps keep your makeup longer – it hides, controls, evens and creates a smooth base for foundation.
*What is Primer?
Originally primer meant a base protectant used before painting. Primers shield the area and ensure better grip of color to the outer surface. In addition to this, primers increase the color strength and prevent attack on the substrate by air, water or other elements.
Makeup primer is a base for foundation or face makeup that allows it to go on smoother and last longer. Formulas are available in cream, gel and powder.
*What are those Good-to-Go Products?
Many makeup primers are formulated with silicone-based polymers, like dimethicone, however silicones aren’t as harsh as you would think, and benefits are possible. Get It Beauty also didn’t give a caution for this ingredient.
