Are you using Primer?

I know most Moms whether working in an office or working at home are always looking to simplify their beauty routine. So adding another step to the morning ritual by using primer seems out of the question. But the way I look at primer is this: why go to all the trouble of making up your face if it's not going to last? Isn't it worth the extra 10 seconds to preserve the effort you've made? Let me break some primer basics for you...

1. What is primer anyway? Primer keeps the oils away while filling in fine lines and reducing pore size to ensure there is a smooth canvas for your makeup.

2. When do you apply primer? Primer goes over your moisturizer before concealer and foundation. If you put the moisturizer on after the primer, it won't be able to penetrate the barrier the primer creates. 

3. Which primer is best for me? Primers come in different colors to address specific skin concerns. Green can contain redness caused by rosacea, pink can help brighten skin tones and light purple can counteract sallow skin. 

4. Why for the eyes? Eye primer can prevent eye shadow creases and increase longevity throughout the day. I can't even tell you how many times it would look like I had no eyeshadow on after a day at work before I started using primer. 

I put together my faves above but there are so many options. Get ready to extend your gorgeousness throughout the day! Shop the primers below to get started...
