Just Getting Started The Basics:Prime time Primer!

Let's talk Primer... primer is important weather it's eyeshadow primer or a face primer.. 

Today we are talking about Face Primers

it preps the skin smoothing it out and filling in fine lines giving you a better base for foundation.. and there are many to choose from.. you have to find the one that is right for you. 

oily/combination skin types should look for a oil free primer that makes the skin matte, 

dry skin types should look for something that provides moisture and a brightening agent, but if you have sensitive skin i would be careful and make sure that you are testing out different primers because you don't want to spend money on one that is not going to work for you. 

I love primers and they do the job well and are necessary! plus if you don't want to spend 30-80 dollars the drugstore brands have great alternatives!  

Just make sure to do all the research that is necessary. I do my research on Youtube it is the BEST beauty tool you can have. Knowledge is power ladies! 

Any questions? Just ask and i will do my very best to answer them as quickly and as thoroughly as I can I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! 


  1. I love Urban Decay Primer Potion!! Can you recommend any good face primers? i recently had Benefit's that gal. it was really good primer but only lasted 3 weeks!! xxx

  2. It depends on your face type and what you are looking to spend.. but high end i would recommend smashbox photo finish and drugstore i would recommend L'Oreal Studio secrets primer.. i actually prefer that to the smashbox one!

  3. Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to try the L'oreal Studio Secrets primer. xxx
