It's likely that by now, you've heard the benefits of using primer. Not only can these miraculous beauty products help to make your makeup last longer, but they also provide a smoother surface for foundation, bronzer and other cosmetics. Still, there's more to primer than meets the eye. Looking to get the most out of yours? These are just a more purposes for the product:
One way that primer can help is by locking in your eye makeup. Allure magazine explained that by dabbing it on your lids and under the eyes prior to applying concealer, eyeshadow and eyeliner, you can prevent any pesky smudging or creasing that results from oil on the skin. Not only that, but some primers can help with fine lines around the eye area as well.
Looking to boost your cleavage? Primer to the rescue. According to Allure, silicones in these solutions can work wonders on your decolletage. Try blending a bit just above the bust and dusting bronzer over it to create the illusion of deeper curvature.
If you want to brighten up a dull complexion, primer is once again the ultimate secret weapon. Blend in Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm for a supple, radiant face. Additionally, as the product helps to minimize wrinkles, you'll look significantly younger.
For the best results, Allure recommended following primer and foundation with setting powder, which prevents the water and silicones in your products from repelling and sliding off.
