As you step into the world of skincare or makeup, you may have come across the word “primer”. Primers are a layer between your skin and makeup, filling in the gaps on the surface of the skin, thus, providing a smooth canvas for you to work with. Primers help makeup last longer - they fill in tiny creases and pores, and smooth over flaky patches and bumpy textures to create a smooth surface for your makeup to glide over.
Primers tend to even out the texture on the skin. They are proven to be boon for the people who have large open pores. Since primers sit into these pores, they prevent the make-up from settling into creases and caking up around the texture.
No, a primer isn’t just for makeup application. It is agreeable that the primary purpose of a primer is to create a smooth base for further make-up application, but it can also be used individually to blur the pores and control shine on the face. On some days when you don’t feel like covering your face with lots of make-up, you can use a layer of a primer to get that no makeup, all-natural face.
A makeup primer doesn’t just make your makeup application a lot easier and smoother, it also helps with the longevity of it. If you are in a mood for just a tad bit of makeup - foundation, eyeliner, and lipstick - you can blend a small quantity of primer along with your foundation for sheerer coverage that stays for a longer period of time.
You may have come across some skincare hacks that suggest using a moisturiser as a substitute for a primer. We at Make-Up Studio are not a big fan of that idea as moisturisers and primers are two different products used for different purposes and cannot be used in place of the other. A moisturizer is used to hydrate your skin whereas, a primer is specifically formulated to create a smooth makeup base by filling in any gaps on the epidermal layer of the skin. A moisturizer goes deep into skin and is quickly absorbed by it. A primer sits on the top layer of the skin, acting as a protective barrier. Both of the products hold their unique importance during the process of make-up application.
After you've applied your moisturiser, wait a few minutes to let it absorb, and then apply the layer of primer all over your face. Be sure to let the primer set for a few minutes before starting with your next step of make-up.
Just like any other make-up product, primers come in many variations. You can choose between a hydrating formula to illuminating, colour correcting, pore minimizing, and mattifying primers. Let us break it to you about which one to choose from.
People with dry skin should opt for hydrating primers that can provide hydration to their itchy and flaky skin. Primers tend to control the sebum on the face. So, it is necessary to opt for a moisturizing primer when it comes to dry skin.
If you struggle with oily skin, you should opt for mattifying primers. The silicone in mattifying primers help in controlling oil secretion and shine on the T-zone in the face.
Buying make-up for combination skin can be tricky. In extreme weather conditions, combination skin can act a little absurdly. The T-zone on combination skin tends to get oily and the area around cheeks get dry. You can opt for primers that are light formula based and hydrate just enough to keep the shine at bay.
As the skin gets matured, it tends to lose its elasticity and luminousity. Opting for an illuminating primer can be a best option for people with mature skin.
