I’ve always loved make-up. It is the one tried and true pick me up that helps me, day after day. However, I was also someone who didn’t quite appreciate items that can be used to help your make-up look better from the moment you put it on to the end of the day.
One of my favorites is Two Faced Primed & Poreless Face Primer . Using primer prior to putting on your foundation actually makes putting it on easier and leaves for a more smooth canvas. It also seems to make my foundation last longer throughout the day. I’ve tried other primers, but what I love about this product is that a little bit goes a long way and it’s very light. Another important factor for me is that it has virtually no smell.
A 1 oz. tube goes for $30. I can make a tube last for about 3 months, so while this may seem pricey, it works out to ten bucks a month.
Another of my favorites is Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer in Minor Sin. Again, the main reason why I love this primer is that it makes my eyeshadow stay put all day long. Another bonus is that I actually use less eyeshadow for coverage. It also does an amazing job of preventing creases in your eyeshadow. Minor Sin is described as a champagne color, so it has a little bit of shimmer to it. This primer has a sponge tip, which you can use to help with application. I generally squeeze a little bit from the tube onto the sponge tip and swipe on my eye. I then blend in with my fingers.
This tube of eyeshadow primer is $20 and comes in a .33 oz size. I think I purchased this about six months ago. It is almost time for me to buy a new tube!
I consider both of these items as my must-haves in my make-up routine and these are two of my favorites. What are your favorites or must-haves?
Remember, it’s never too late to try something new!
