A primer is an important essential you should have in your makeup bag – it prepares your skin before applying makeup. A good primer helps your makeup last longer, while giving a smooth oil-free finish. If you have large pores a primer can aid in reducing the appearance of them. For people with acne prone skin, primer also acts as a barrier between makeup and skin, which reduces the chances of clogging your pores.
Foundation: Liquid & Powder
Liquid foundation gives skin a dewy, glowing finish and good coverage. People with older skin tend to like powder foundation as it can give good coverage on wrinkles and lines – making them less noticeable.
Suggested skin types for powder foundation: Normal and dry skin.
A powder foundation gives great coverage and is an effective on-the-go bathroom touch up essential. For some people, a powder feels lighter on the skin and does not have a heavy feel to it. It is especially beneficial for people with acne prone skin who do not want to clog their pores.
Suggested skin types for powder foundation: Normal, combination, sensitive, acne prone and oily skin.
A bronzer is the perfect finishing touch to a makeup look that can make the cheek bones pronounced and defined while leaving a bronzed glow, highlighting your facial features. It gives your face a tanned, warm radiance and is a year round product that can be used in all seasons. Bronzers can also be used as an eye shadow.
