Primers!

Hi Lovelies,

It has been a long long time. Soo sorry, life has been super busy!

I wanted to share with you my favourite primer products and emphasize why it is so important to use a primer before makeup application.

Using a makeup primer is the best way to make your makeup stay on for longer. Their aim is to prepare the skin for the makeup application, they pamper the skin and create a protective base for longer- lasting, natural looking foundation application and wear. Primers give the makeup something to grab onto and help your makeup last longer, because they create a smooth and perfect surface. A primer is something you put on as a barrier between your skin and foundation. the reason for using a primer is that it makes your skin smoother and you don’t need as much foundation to get a beautiful finish.

 
My favourite primers are:
 
Benefit thePOREfessional, it minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup.
 
Tip: I use thePOREfessional on my skin alone for days when I do not want to wear any makeup, it even outs my skin tone and makes my pores appear smaller.

Benefit dr.feelgood, this primer mattifies shine, the weightless balm leaves your skin feeling silky-soft. Fabulous for mid-day touch-ups. It can be worn alone, under or on top of makeup. This primer is great if you are prone to oiley skin.

Tip: Reapply with a sponge for instant mid-day mattification that’s better than blotting papers! Works best when pressed onto the skin in a patting motion.

Makeup Tip #1 Eyes

Makeup Tip#1 EYE PENCILS

To find the right pencil for you, test it on the back of your hand to achieve the right texture. If it is too dry, it won’t leave as much colour as you’d like and you could hurt yourself by having to apply it too hard. Pencils that are too soft, will undoubtedly smudge.

Hint 1 – For maximum precision, look for a soft yet firm tip.

Hint 2- For maximun hold, gently stretch and hold your eyelid closed with a finger while applying the pencil across the whole lid.

My favourite is Benefit cosmetics BAD gal liner

I hope this helps!

Stay sweet xo
