Makeup primer is a super-thin, silky and invisible balm that, when smoothed over your face, temporarily fills in tiny creases and pores and smoothes out flaky patches. It absorbs oil, cuts shine and leaves skin velvety-smooth. Effect-wise, it makes makeup look better and stay on way longer.
You don’t need to be putting on a “full face” to use primer. It’s great under tinted moisturizer or even just a dusting of face powder. When you apply it you’ll see it leaves a lovely, velvety glaze on skin and feels nicely hydrating.
Primer works best on clean, freshly moisturized skin. Wait five minutes for your moisturizer to sink in before applying it otherwise it will slide off. Use just a pea-sized amount of primer for a thin, even layer. If you apply too much makeup will slide off, not stick. After you apply it, wait a full minute for it to dry and set on skin before getting started on your routine
