I wear primer underneath my makeup to smooth my skin and help my foundation last longer. A variety of primers exist to create a matte, dewy or luminous base for makeup. I switch between three primers to achieve a matte canvas:
1. Tatcha The Silk Canvas Primer
I love primers that minimize oil and control any shine in my skin. This primer doesn’t feel greasy, oily or reminiscent of silicone. I usually apply this primer during warmer summer months to control oil and smooth my skin.
2. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Smashbox’s iconic primer is lightweight and absorbs quickly. This clear primer is gel-based and it smooths, softens, and primes my skin. I wear this primer when I apply my makeup for a full day of wear.
3. Too Faced Replenishing Primer
Too Faced Replenishing Primer is a unique spray formula. After trying this primer a few times, it became one of my favourite ones. The refreshing mist adds hydration to the skin, which helps my makeup last longer once applied.
