Why Prime?

What is Primer?

Makeup Primer is a base for foundation that allows the makeup to go on smooth and last longer.

What it does?

1. Hides pores.

2. Softens skin.

3.Smooths makeup.

4.Helps makeup last.

5.Reduces redness.

The Test:

1. I am applying makeup without any moisturizer and primer, (first picture) and then i am taking a 10 minute jog on the treadmill to see how it holds up. (second picture)FotorCreatedBefore my jog i noticed that my foundation was cakey looking and dry, i also noticed my makeup creasing. After my jog, the right photo shows that my concealer didn’t stay on and the natural redness of my skin is showing and my skin doesn’t have the same bright look to it.

2.  I took off my makeup and am now applying moisturizer and primer to my skin before applying my foundation. The left photo is before my jog, the right photo is after my jog.

kksksksBefore my jog, my makeup went on a lot smoother and my skin tone was even. After my jog i noticed that my makeup was still in place and even but my skin was a lot more shiny. It was mainly my fault because i used a moisturizing primer when i think i should have used a mattifying primer. But at the end of the day, primer deffinitly kept my makeup in place and it lasted all day.
