Used in place of a foundation or in combination, a quality primer can provide a good base for the application of your makeup products. Not only will your cosmetics go on easier, but they will also stay fresh looking longer, minimizing the need to reapply them throughout your day. Acting as fillers for creases and wrinkles, primers can be used to create a smoother appearance, while also minimizing the visibility of your facial scars and blemishes.
Primers are designed to neutralize the color of your facial skin in order to promote a better end result. Since primers can even out your skin tone, it is possible to wear them without applying additional makeup. Wearing primers offering SPF protection delivers a smooth appearance while also safeguarding the skin against harsh UVA/UVB rays.
Tinted primers offer the ability to minimize discolorations and dark spots on the skin, reducing the need for a corrective concealer or boosting the performance of your regular concealing product. Primers may also be used to neutralize the appearance of freckles, age spots, under-the-eye circles as well as other types of discoloration. Primers have been formulated to reduce redness associated with rosacea and acne. If you are using a color-correcting primer, it is important to choose the correct formula for your purpose.
