The beauty market is constantly growing and evolving to bring us new and innovative products. Some of them can be game changers while others aren’t really necessary. One that you might not think you need is make-up primer, which is applied after washing your face and before doing your face beat. Adding one to your routine, however, can make a difference not just to your make-up but to your skin, too.
If you thought that make-up primer was just a gimmick or passing fad, think again! This product falls into both the skincare and cosmetics categories and has benefits for both your skin and your beauty looks.
The primary reason that people use this product is that it helps your make-up last much longer. It also smooths out the surface of your skin, filling in any lumps and bumps, for smooth application and a flawless look.

While this used to be its only function, many modern primers now offer even more benefits. There are different formulas available for different skin types, from dry to oily, and ones for your preferred finish, whether it’s matte or dewy. Some of them are also tinted in different shades to treat issues such as redness or a sallow complexion, using the science of colour correction.
Giving your complexion an instant boost so that it looks good under your make-up is one reason that people love primer. The other one is that these days many of them contain ingredients that can improve your skin over time. These range from niacinamide, which can reduce redness, tighten pores and fade hyperpigmentation, to salicylic acid, which targets breakouts and prevents shine. This way, you get the benefits of skincare and a flawless look each and every time!
