Face Primer Products
What are Face Primers?
Face primers are designed to create a layer of product between your skin and makeup that helps your makeup last longer. They may also smooth the skin surface and even out skin tone.
How do you pick the right face primer?
- Oily skin types tend to do best with a matte product.
- Drier skin types often look and feel best with a hydrating product.
Did you know that you can use sunscreen as a makeup primer?
It’s true. If you pick your sunscreen correctly you can apply it right under your makeup. This gives you the best antiaging skin care to prevent premature skin aging.
If your skin is oily, choose a matte product such as my Sheer Strength Pure Physical Mineral SPF 50+ Tinted Matte Sunscreen. If you don’t want tinting, try the Sheer Strength Invisible Sunscreen.
If your skin is dry, like mine, try the Suntegrity 5 in 1 tinted BB Cream Sunscreen. I wear this every day now that I’m over 60. My skin loves it and my makeup lasts.
Can you depend on your makeup for sun protection?
No, you apply your makeup to create a look. As a dermatologist I know that your sunscreen needs to be applied in a sufficient amount to sun protect your skin and prevent skin aging. That’s why I love that the sunscreen I mentioned above are also great makeup primers. Apply your sunscreen then creatively use makeup for your final look – applying just what you need.Author:
