I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but what sparked the fire to get it done now was a beauty Q&A from the September issue of Glamour.
So, what’s the deal with makeup primer?
This has to be my favorite beauty indulgence. I only recently started using makeup primer as part of my daily routine, since about May actually. However, I cannot go without it now. I hate it when that happens.
I think it’s a solid investment in your beauty regime for the following reasons because everything in the A of the Q&A above is true! I notice that my foundation goes on and blends better and smoother than it did before I used primer. It evens out my skin so much so that on the weekends, I’ll just throw it on and skip foundation completely, then continue with blush or bronzer and go on my merry way. I’ve NEVER done that before.
Since it is an added expense, I would suggest starting out with a trail or travel size just to see if you like it. I use the regular photo finish primer from Smashbox and love it! I also know a lot of friends who use Arbonne‘s makeup primer and love it as well. Either way, you can’t go wrong here.
