Today, let’s talk about something that’s very important, but sometimes underestimated in your daily facial cosmetics routine – the base for your makeup. Among professionals, it’s just called a “Primer”. Your makeup look and how long it lasts actually depends on the it! When choosing the perfect one for yourself, remember to take into account your type of skin, age and of course the occasion that you’re preparing for. If you have oily skin, using a silicone primer is going to be best, since it has this unique feature that blocks pores, so you don’t have an oily shine. Ladies with dry skin don’t need to use the silicone based one, but no matter your skin, if you’re doing a wedding makeup, a primer is something you must have! Inglot, Make Up For Ever shiny bases, that carry light reflecting particles help with hiding any skin flaws that you might have, they’re also very effective while being used on dry skin. The most important feature of these primers is their ability to instantly revive tired looking skin. Bases like these can be applied daily. Guerlain METEORITES Perles, and MAC pro are great moisturizing primers. For mature skin, as well as skin that has been tan for some time, moisturizing primers are great, I wouldn’t recommend using them for oily skin though. Lancome, and MAC pro are great for beach vacations, you’re definitely going to need the SPF protection they have. You can find these in any shop that carries professional makeup. Colored bases also exist for your makeup, each of them has a specific purpose: a green base removes redness from your skin, purple hides the yellowness, while the pink helps you wipe the greyness of your skin. These simple tips are going to help you look flawless day in and day out!
