Tired of dabbing on makeup after every couple of hours? Do your friends think you have bladder issues because you go to the restroom quite often, although you only go to reapply and freshen up your makeup? Does most of your hard earned money go into buying makeup? Wish there was a perfect solution to your questions? Well, then “what-if” we told you that your wish has been granted? That’s right; the answer to your worries can be spelled in six letters P-R-I-M-E-R. If you haven’t used it yet, then you really are missing out on something amazing! A primer is your saving grace; it works like magic and can help you flaunt the red carpet look all day long without any touch-ups. And that’s not an exaggeration. For those who haven’t tried primer before, let us tell you that it works like a base for the foundation or face makeup. It allows the foundation to remain smoother and last longer.

How to Use it For Best Results?
For best results, you must know the right way to use a primer. When using a primer, here are the steps to follow: Step 1 # Use a light moisturizer to ensure the primer doesn’t slide off your skin Step 2 # Pour a small amount of the primer in your hands and dip a wedge sponge into it, then dab it gently onto your face. Start by dabbing it under your eyes, then move towards your nose, forehead, cheeks and chin. Blend it nicely and evenly, covering all areas. Step 3 # Wait a few minutes and allow it to dry. Once it dries, then you can apply your foundation and wear your makeup. However, if you love the fresh, polished, no makeup look, then you don’t need to apply anything else. Stay beautiful and share the secret to a long-lasting fresh look with your girl friends!
