MAKEUP PRIMER

You may be wondering for a long time, what does makeup primer do?

There are so many in the market so which one should I use?

Well, if you have these questions in your mind, I am going to answer you right now.


There are 3 different types of makeup primer:

  1. Skincare

  2. Colour correction

  3. Texture

1. SKINCARE

- Moisture: for dry skin, boost the skin glow & hydration for better adhesion.

- Oil Control: control & mattify shine so your makeup can be more long- lasting.

I personally don't really use the skincare primer on my clients because I always do a thorough skincare routine on them and in my opinion, further skincare primer will just overload your skin.


2. COLOUR CORRECTION

- Purple: neutralize yellow undertone & to brighten up your skin tone.

I mostly apply it around the chin area and mostly T-zone and cheek area if my client's skin is dull and yellowish around those areas.


I have been using MAKEUP FOREVER purple corrector for a long time and you just need to apply a little bit.



- Green: neutralize red undertone for prone skin such as acnes & breakouts.

- Pink: add luminosity to skin that are tired and spiritless and anemic.

- Yellow: knock out purple tones on the skin/ dark circles (I mainly apply to brighten up the shades of eye bags.)

- Orange/ Peach: conceal blue dark circle/ bruises.


MAC STUDIO FIX CONCEAL AND CORRECT PALETTE is my Go-To products and a little goes a long way.



3. Texture
