In order to create a masterpiece, you need a primer!!!

2:52 PM



Hello my beautiful stalkers!!

My wonder for the day is what did we do before there were makeup primers? Of course, we moisturized and then set forward to apply liquid or powder foundation, etc…..

There was a time where we survived without primers, but it was a much oilier unprotected and less hydrated time.

Living in Miami, humidity is a nightmare for everything! It kills your face, your makeup and your hairstyle. It can be hard for those with combination/oily skin during those really humid summer months (but, wait it’s Miami so it’s humid year round). :)  Floridians dream of those two days a year when it’s cool outside and they can enjoy and beautiful blowout and matte skin! Don’t get me wrong the summer can be fun and enjoyable when at the pool or the beach. You just have to go with the flow and adapt accordingly. This includes your beauty routine! No matter what, the most vital thing no matter where you live is: ALWAYS use sunscreen or makeup with SPF. I thought I would share some of my all time favorite primers with you. There are so many to choose from and I know that I am leaving out some of my favs, but these are right now, some of my go to primers that have really done well for me. I have combination/oily skin and really can have a challenging time when finding products for my face. It can be anything from a cleanser to our current topic, primers.

**Please note that these are great for all skin tones and pretty much all skin types**
 
Everyone’s skin is different, so take in consideration that these work great for me and I wanted to share them with you. Please feel free to comment and tell me any tips or brands that you love!! Let’s get on with my top five:
Below each item, I am including the information from the brand and where it can be purchased.
