Just like your lip stick is a basic necessity, so is your primer. While most women simply skip to foundation, not many know that a primer smoothens the surface of the skin and also helps control oil. This is great because we live in a tropical region where the sun shines bright through most of the year. Read on to know all about this magic lotion and why it should be included in your daily essentials!

Power of the Primer

Are you tired of your make-up looking blotched as the day nearly comes to an end? Fret no more! The primary job of a primer (we love alliterations, sorry not sorry) is to keep your make-up looking intact and fabulous right till the time you take it off.

In addition to wielding its magic to help your make-up last long, primers also blur fine lines, colour correct, fill pores and reduce oiliness or dryness of the skin. While primers may seem like an unnecessary investment, they will soon become a must-have beauty product in your everyday kit once you start using them.

Why you need a Primer?

Because it’s Magic! On a serious note, primers lend a natural glow to your face as some types even substitute as highlighters. They work flawlessly to brighten up your skin. Originally there were only foundation and eye-shadow primers available, but now there are also lip, mascara, brow and nail primers available to give your overall make-up a perfect finish.

We all love the way our skin looks in pictures we add filters to. A primer makes the skin look similar to how it looks in those pictures as it creates a photo-shopped effect of the skin. This beauty wonder also miraculously absorbs oil and manages to give your skin a cool matte texture that doubles up as efficient shine control for extremely oil skin.

We recommend the Maybelline Baby Skin Primer & the L’oreal Base Magique primer 

So, are you set to allow primers to work their magic on your skin before you begin with make-up application?
