It is so important to use a facial primer under your makeup. One of the main benefits of using a makeup primer is it seals your pores. Makeup primer takes care of all that by sealing pores and creating a smooth texture as well as softening your skin. Most but not all Primers are non-comedogenic, which means they won’t break your face out or irritate your skin. Using a primer also helps to help keep your foundation on longer, with less wear off.
Primers come in different hues to address specific skin concerns. Clear, Green to combat redness. Light purple counteracts sallow undertones and pink helps brighten complexions.
