FLAWLESS | Why Primer Is Your Best Friend!


Hey kittens!

I thought today that I would talk about primers and why they're your best friends. A lot of people don't realize that to have flawless makeup you have to have a flawless base! I always see people asking why their foundation isn't going on smoothly and usually the issue is that they didn't use primer! But there is more than just face primer, there is primer for basically every part of your face!

Face Primer:
Face primer is used to fill in lines and pores and even out your skin texture so that when you put your foundation on it will look flawless because you've already used something translucent or tinted to fill in the imperfections. It also ensures that your makeup will stay on all throughout the day and that you'll need less or no touch ups!

Eye Primer:
Eyelid primer can be translucent or tinted. It differs from the face primer because it's a lot more tackier so that the eyeshadow stays in place and doesn't crease, it also increases the vibrancy of the eyeshadow!

Lip Primer: I feel this is one that most people over look but it's super important.  If you're using a lip liner then sometimes you can skip the primer, but it's extra awesome if you do both. Lip primer will double ensure that your lipstick won't fade, feather, or transfer because the last thing you want to be worrying about all day is how your lipstick looks! Most have moisturizing qualities as well to keep your lips hydrated!

Now you know why primers are so important! If you haven't been using primers and your makeup hasn't been lasting all day that is usually the issue. Go to your favourite makeup store and check some out, there are many different brands to try!


  1. I think I need to try primer on my under eyes, I think its much cheaper then botox! i always seem to be drawn to the lines of my under eyes so I might give primer another go

  5. I can't live without primer! I use three of the same ones you do, the lip primer, eyeshadow, and face primers are all my absolute favs! Ill have to check out your others since we have similar taste!

  6. I've only used eyeshadow primer but never face or lip primer. I have dry skin so my makeup never slips off hence the lack of face primers. Lip primer sounds like something that I can get a good use out of it though, especially when using Mac retro matte lipsticks.

  7. I've started using primer over my moisturizer on days I don't even wear makeup, and my skin looks so much better with it on. I've recently fallen in love with Laura Mercier's face primer and I can't wait to try Benefit's roll on primer.
