Makeup Primers, yay or nay ?

Unread post by Gracie168 »

Hey,
Just wondering, how many people would say makeup primers are a must?
Or do you feel that they don't make a huge difference ?
Would you use it for powder foundation ?
Curious as to people's opinions :D

Thanks,
Gracie

hey,

I always use a primer for liquid and powdered foundations. I personally find that the makeup sits better and doesn't go blotchy afterwards. Skin feels smoother too and makeup is easier to apply plus it has a nice finish when the makeup is done. If you are after a affordable primer I would recommend the original Australis primer :)

Hey !
Thanks for your reply :D
Have u ever used a liquid one ?
I found one that's a setting spray/primer, I'll try it out, I'm not sure how it's supposed to work though if it's a liquid ??
I'm very new to makeup ;)
Thanks for the recommendation too !

That's ok !

I haven't used a liquid one yet interested to see how a liquid one works.
I have used the cream which I love it has a jelly like feel which feels soft on the skin and hydrating.
I have used a spray a Primer/setting spray, with that one I normally just spay it on the face at the start before applying makeup and then again after the makeup is on.

that's ok I have done makeup on friends and family but I still have a lot to learn to so I'm still new to it all to.

I normally always use the cream primer I personally find it works better then the primer spray that I have but I’m sure you can get a spray the works just as well and then the primer/setting spray I normally spray after the look is done to set it :)

I know it’s crazy how much there is to learn

I use a face moisturizer first, then I prime the face before applying any color corrector, concealer than foundation. I mostly use liquid foundation. I think its a must, as it fills in areas and makes the face smoother, which helps with the application of the foundation.
