Make-Up Tips: Foundation Primer

What is a Foundation Primer? And Do U  Need it?
Answer: Just like you prime a wall before you paint it, you can prime your face before you apply foundation.

Makeup artists swear primers go one step further than moisturizers: They'll even out skin tone, help your makeup stay on longer and absorb oil with salicylic acid.

Primers are an incredibly pre-step to foundation application. Foundation primer creates a smooth surface for foundation..
Other benefits of foundation primers,

1. They allow foundation to "stay put" in hot weather.
2. Help prevent skin from absorbing talc and pigment from your foundation as well as preventing talc from drawing oil from the skin.
3. They contain botanicals such as lavender, orange, jasmine, rose, geranium, grape and aloe extracts to soothe and refresh the skin. And some contain cucumber.
