I’m sure you have heard of them, but have you ever tried one? If you think your makeup glides onto your skin, then you haven’t seen anything until you try a good face primer! I thought I was happy with my makeup just worn over moisturizer everyday. I did, however, complain a lot about oiliness on my T-zone as the day wore on as well as my makeup sometimes not staying on as long as I would have liked it too, especially in the hot, humid weather. I had tried BB Cream as a primer under my foundation, but found that the Garnier brand resulted in break outs and I also felt it was too heavy worn with foundation; it’s true that BB creams are best worn alone! I recently discovered the VS Pro Airbrush FX Perfecting Primer, which I mentioned in my February Favourites Post and I am officially hooked!
Primers are designed to prime your skin and prepare it in the best way possible for your foundation application, sounds exciting doesn’t it! Well it is! Primers smooth your complexion, fill in any fine lines and wrinkles and most contain a sunscreen too to protect your skin all day long. They also allow your makeup to really stick to your skin, meaning that your makeup won’t budge for hours on end and they also control oil, goodbye greasy T-zone!
Why I Heart The VS Primer
My skin gets oily and breaks out if I just think of a pimple, and I was convinced that this would be another product to do just that. Imagine my surprise when after two weeks of wearing this, I hadn’t broken out! Okay so maybe I still got the odd hormonal pimple, but the fact was this stuff does not cause me to get pimples.
All you need is one pump to cover your whole face and it makes your skin feel like silk. On days when you feel like going au naturel, wear this primer alone as it really evens everything out and makes your skin feel ah-mazing!
Your foundation literally just glides right on over this and your skin appears airbrushed. You will find that you need less concealer, which for me is pretty awesome! Your makeup will stay on until you decide to remove it, no joke, and say buh-bye to oiliness as this primer controls oil all day. An added bonus? This VS primer contains SPF20 so you can be assured that you are protecting your face against harmful UVA rays, yay! Read more awesome reviews here.
If you have been thinking about trying a primer then what are you waiting for? If you have no idea which primer to choose or your skin tends to breakout then give the VS primer a go, you won’t be disappointed!
