Must you always use Primer? Or can you just use foundation

Unread postby marchet13 » September 29th, 2014, 1:35 pm

Hello, I started the course and I'm a little confused. Must you always use primer? or can you just you the foundation. I know eye primer helps a lot, but just curious about the latter. Thanks

I think primer is optional. But a must with a client. Plus, it can act as a base color when you get ready to apply your eyeshadow colors. :)

Since I first discovered primer, I always prefer to use one even on myself for daily makeup. The skin feels smoother and the foundation sits better and lasts longer. The primer seems to prepare the skin for optimal outcome from foundations, powders, blushes and eyeshadows. For clients, it is a must!

Primer isn't a must, but I would always use as a base on a client. Embryolisse is the holy grail of moisturizers. It is a moisturizer, primer and makeup remover. Highly recommended by professionals as a go to product. I use it both as a base and as a moisturizer alone. A little goes a long way. Amazing stuff.

The traditional way to use concealer is to apply before foundation, however, applying foundation on first than concealer let's you cover those uneven tone areas, and give you a gorgeous flawless look.

Primer helps the makeup stay on longer.

Depends on how amazing your skin is! Primer is helpful either ways depending on which primer you use, some primers such as Smashbox collection ones actually have primers that can help with dark spots, acne, brightening etc. so it may be worth while. Primer obviously just softens the skins, hide pores and gives an easier surface for make up to be applied but if you moisturize your skin and take good care of it, sometimes it's not even needed! It depends completely on you!
