What is the Purpose of a Makeup Primer

The most important face primer use is to make the rest of the makeup products you apply last longer, from foundation, concealer and contour to eyeshadow. Applying a little primer on your lids will make your eye look last for ages while allowing for a smoother eyeshadow application. 

Face primer has gone from a trend to a makeup essential during these past years. So much so that not having at least one primer in your makeup bag can make it incomplete. Don't miss out on the action and learn how to use face primer for longer lasting makeup.

For perfect, flawless, poreless skin all day, every day, use the best makeup primer from Maybelline. The purpose of primer makeup is basically to prep your skin by filling in fine lines and minimizing pores for a smoother makeup application. Get a flawless complexion and an impeccable canvas for your foundation and concealer with a skin-perfecting face primer such as FACESTUDIO® MASTER PRIME® FACE PRIMER, the perfect makeup primer for oily skin, or a blur stick like FACESTUDIO® MASTER BLUR STICK PRIMER for a no-fuss, one stroke application.

The best drugstore makeup primer can even be used alone with a little concealer for a luminous effect on your skin on those days you don't feel like doing your makeup or when you don't have enough time.

Apply a thin layer of face primer with your fingertips before applying any makeup and after cleansing and hydrating your skin to create the perfect base for the rest of your makeup.
