So often, I hear the same question asked by many a bride-to-be regarding whether or not it is necessary to wear more foundation than "normal" on the big day so that it will stay put all night. My dear ladies, the answer will always be "absolutely not". If I've applied makeup for you before, you will know that my style of application is one that will ALWAYS highlight the beauty of seeing fresh, supple, beautiful skin. The way this look is achieved while providing longevity for the wedding day would be to use a great primer.
There are so many primers on the market right now, one can become quite overwhelmed at where to begin. Well, you might want to start with understanding what the functions of a primer really are. There are many benefits of adding this product to your beauty routine.
- Primers prep your skin for foundation and act as a "barrier" between your skin and the cosmetics you apply. Foundations and other makeup products contain pigments and talc, both of which can dry out your skin. This veil of protection from your primer prevents these offenders from drawing the oil from your skin.
- Foundations fare better during warm weather when Primers play a role in your application. After smoothing the surface of your skin, this product will work as an adhesive to allow foundation to go on smoothly and adhere "for better or worse".
- Primers actually act as a great protectant for all of the wonderful (and sometimes expensive) skin care that you have slathered on before starting on your makeup. It prevents your foundation and makeup from interfering with the tiny miracles that your skin care is designed to do for you.
