HOW TO USE PRIMER: An Ultimate Guide to Achieve a Flawless Makeup Base!
Before one understands how to use a primer, let's understand why you need one.
Using a primer is crucial in any makeup routine as it helps create a smooth and flawless base.

Why Use a Primer?
Now we all know our skin has texture and pores, so it is only natural that when we directly apply any makeup product on the skin, there’s a high possibility of it settling into the pores and making the makeup look uneven or patchy. To avoid this from happening, one must just not skip the primer!

Primers create a layer on your skin that diminishes the appearance of pores, textures, and any fine lines on the skin thus leaving a smooth canvas for your foundation application.

How to Choose the Right Primer?
Now that you know how important it is to use a makeup primer, let's delve into how to choose the right primer for your skin.

Skin texture and anatomy change from person to person, so choosing a primer that accommodates your skin type is very important. One needs to first identify your skin type and concerns so you can choose a primer that will resolve your concerns the best.

For example, if you have oily skin, you will need a primer that controls oil secretion along with minimizing the appearance of open pores, whereas if you have dry skin, you will need a primer that also moisturizes your skin and doesn’t clog pores.

Wondering where and how to get the right primer according to your skin? Don’t worry! That’s exactly what we are here to help you with!
