Currently Playing [Carrie Underwood – Hark! the Herald Angels Sing]
I don’t know about you but I am workaholic. Aside from my blogging job, I have 3 other jobs on the side. This means that during most days, it’ll be a norm for me to have makeup on for more than 12 hours. So what’s my secret to ensure that my makeup will stay on throughout the whole day? Two words: face primers! Contrary to popular belief, I believe it’s not the foundation, but it’s the primer that allows makeup to look fresh throughout the day. Just like when you’re painting, you always want to start off with a primed canvas. Applying foundation is the same, you want a primed face to make sure that the foundation will adhere more nicely to your face.
Recently, these 3 have been my favorite face primers. The first one is the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur. This primer is the thickest out of the 3 and it’s also my favorite. It has a smooth and velvety matte finish, which is great for anyone with drier skin. If you have oily skin and you need to control your face oil during the day, then I would suggest the Givenchy Mister Mat Mattifying Foundation Primer. This is very lightweight and because it contains silicone gum extracts, it can hydrate without being too oily. Last, I would recommend the Avon MagiX Face Perfector (not available until January 2014) but the cheapest of the 3. The skin does look pore-free, shine-free and line free, it definitely makes your skin beyond perfection! So if you want your makeup to perform flawlessly throughout those long working days, don’t be lazy and use a face primer before your foundation. (Link to original post here)
