Primer, face primer

The primer is a much-overlooked product in the makeup routine - even though it is often the primer that holds the key to transforming your makeup look from Good to Great!

The face primer is essential to prime your skin and get it ready for makeup. 

In this blog post, we'll unravel the mysteries of this unsung hero - exploring what it is, how it elevates your makeup look, the correct way to apply it, and why Sandiva’s One & Done Protective Primer stands out in this crucial beauty ritual step.

What is a Face Primer?

Before diving into the magic of face primer, let's first understand what a face primer is. A face primer is a cosmetic product designed to prepare your skin for the application of makeup. It acts as a bridge between your skincare routine and your makeup, providing a smooth and clean canvas for the flawless application of foundation, concealer, and other makeup products.

It is typically available in gel, cream, or lotion formulations and is enriched with ingredients that create a velvety texture on the skin.

Primer is the secret that enhances the longevity and performance of your makeup, ensuring it stays put throughout the day.

How does it help elevate your makeup look?

There are myriad benefits to including a face primer in your makeup routine. Let’s take a look at them:

Smoother Surface: Face primers work like magic to create a smooth and even surface on your skin. They help in blurring out fine lines, and imperfections and create a silky canvas for your foundation to glide on seamlessly.

Longer Wear Time: By acting as a barrier between your skin and makeup, a primer prevents your makeup from getting absorbed into the skin, ensuring it stays in place for a more extended period. This means fewer touch-ups and makeup that looks fresh throughout the day.

Minimized Pores: Pore-filling primers are a holy grail for those struggling with larger pores. These minimize the appearance of pores and leave you with a smoother-looking and flawless complexion.

Even Skin Texture: If uneven skin texture is a concern, a smoothing primer can be your best companion. It blurs uneven areas, giving your skin an airbrushed and refined appearance.

Enhanced Pigment Intensity: Primers don't just prepare your skin; they can also intensify the pigmentation of your makeup products allowing you to get the best of your products. This is particularly beneficial for eyeshadows, blushes, and other colour cosmetics, ensuring the hues appear vibrant and true to their shades.

Right Way to Apply Primer

While incorporating a face primer into your routine is essential, it's also important to ensure you’re applying it correctly to reap its full benefits.

Start with Clean Skin: Begin with a clean and moisturised face. Apply primer on a fresh canvas without any dirt or oil on your face for optimal adherence to the skin.

Choose the Right Product: There's a diverse range of primers catering to different skin concerns. Choose a primer that aligns with your needs, whether it's hydration, pore-filling, or blurring and correction.

Apply in Small Amounts: Less is more when it comes to face primer application. Start with a small amount and spread it evenly across your face. Focus on areas where you want to smooth texture or minimize pores.

Blend with Fingertips or Brush: With the help of your fingertips, gently blend the primer into your skin. Alternatively, you can also use a makeup brush for a more even application. Ensure the primer is distributed uniformly, creating a seamless base for your makeup.

Allow Time to Set: Give the primer a few minutes to set before moving on to the foundation or next makeup products. Allowing it to set ensures a smooth and well-prepared canvas for flawless makeup application.
