    Make up primers are nothing but a base on which the makeup sits better. These primers are coats that you apply on your bare skin, even before you apply your foundation. Primers are available in the form of powders, lotions and gels. The primers are primarily used to protect your skin against the heavy makeup that you apply. It has been in use in the entertainment industry for a long time. The actors have long applied face primers under their makeup to keep your skin healthy. The rest of us have only recently discovered this wonderful product. Makeup primers also elongate the life of the makeup and keep it longer on your skin, giving you a fresh and beautiful look for a longer period of time. Make up primers also help to cover up acne spots, skin blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. You get primers for your face, your lips, your eyelids as well as your nails.

    How do you use a face primer?

    Makeup primers are very useful. However, you need to know how to use them correctly to get the best results. Follow these simple steps for proper application of your makeup primer:

    • Clean your face: Before you begin, rinse your face and pat dry. You can use a mild face wash to wash off the grease and dirt.
    • Take a pea-sized portion: Primers need to be used in small amounts. Too much primer will affect your overall look and make the makeup look messy. So take a dot of primer and apply it evenly on your face.
    • Message in an outward motion: It is highly advisable for you start at the middle and massage outwards. Apply the primer to the centre of your check and using your finger tips, gently spread it outwards. This will ensure you have an even application and it will also give you a healthy face message.
    • Allow it to dry: The primer takes a very short while to dry, but you must be patient and wait for it. Applying foundation to wet primer will not fetch you the desired results. So just let it dry out before you proceed to the next step.

    Follow these simple steps and you will be able to apply the makeup primer perfectly each and every time.

    Now that you have all your doubts cleared, go on and get a good makeup primer if you have not done so already. A primer can transform your look and also help you to keep your makeup on for longer. Get your hands on the best primers and make them an essential part of your makeup kit.
