A crucial step you may be missing (as was I for the majority of my makeup wearing life) is something that happens before the rouge, before the mascara, and even before your foundation. This very imperative, but often neglected step is the application of a little something called primer. Primer should be applied the moment you are done moisturizing so as to “lock” in your moisturizer and create the smoothest “canvas” possible. I know, I know. It’s starting to get steamy outside, so the last thing you feel like doing is adding another layer to your fabulous face. You’ve worked awfully hard getting that face painted to perfection, so applying a primer to prevent your face from melting off seems like a worthy cause, no? And here’s the best part: many primers have added benefits like built in SPF or anti-aging ingredients.
