Why is primer important? Well, it preps your face for foundation, and it protects your face from it. As I was mentioning before, to choose the right primer, we must accustom it to our necessities. For example, my main concern in my face is oil production and large pores; and I want a primer that hydrates me but diminished my flaws, so my foundation looks smooth and doesn’t enlarge imperfections. Some other people may have a problem with dry skin, so they look for primers that will keep their face hydrated. The key is just to pay attention to our face necessities.

I will use my face as an example of what I am talking about, I have combination skin (oily and dry) with acne and big pores, when I apply foundation as it is, the foundation sinks into my pores, and it doesn’t sit properly on top of my acne. Also, if I don’t apply any primer, my skin will break out, and I will get more pimples. To avoid all those problems, I use a primer that fills my pores but also hydrates it. Currently, I’m using Tatcha “Silk Canvas Protective Primer” This is on the expensive side, but I love how my foundation looks on top of it.

A good example of why a prier is important in our makeup routine.

Nowadays, we have options, a lot of options everywhere, we have high high-end, drug stores and indies. Now, price does not determine the quality of a product; the ingredients do. Although I will try to be careful before buying any product. First, investigate the brand/company and check for their customers. Also, don’t forget to check reviews, they are essential. Now that you made up your mind, I will try to get samples, Sephora offers samples of their products. Also, if you decide to buy something, but it doesn’t work for you, they have a 30-day return policy; you will get your money back.
