If you established a proper beauty routine for your skin already, it's time to get that flawless complexion with a little help from makeup.


Makeup primer sets the canvas for long-lasting makeup coverage and helps to create an even skin tone.

Primer has the unique ability to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It reduces the look of large pores and prevents foundation from looking cakey. It also helps with evening out the skin tone and making your makeup last much longer throughout the day. Using primer as a layer between your skin and foundation provides the base necessary to create the appearance of perfect skin at any age.

Primer can help prevent unsightly creases in eye shadow and streaks in foundation, and it can also control the appearance of shine.

How to use face primers:

  1. apply your moisturizer first and allow a couple of minutes for the moisturizer to settle into the skin
  2. use a small amount of the primer and apply gently to the skin, paying attention to the under eye area
  3. lastly, apply your concealer, foundation, or face powder as you normally would

When choosing your foundation it is important to find the right shade that blends with the skin tone for natural-looking coverage. Foundation should disappear into the skin without any lines of demarcation and enhance the natural shade and undertone of the skin. Choose the product that is suitable for your skin type. The right formulation of foundation can improve the appearance of the skin and prevent breakouts or unwanted reactions.

The next step is to apply the foundation with the proper techniques to avoid a caked-on appearance. You might want to take cue from makeup artists all around the world and use a tiny wedge cosmetic sponge.

Useful tip: dampen your cosmetic sponge slightly and blend the foundation into your skin. This allows a smooth application and will brush over fine lines.
