This week we’re getting the low down on the one product that everyone needs for a long-lasting, fabulous finish: primers. We all have our own daily face makeup routines and have found the best products catered to our skin type. Some of us can’t go an entire day without running to the bathroom to blot, so oil control products or oil free foundations are a necessity. Or maybe your pores are pretty much the size of the moon so you’ll use anything and everything to minimize them.
Whatever the case may be, something every girl can relate to is how easily makeup starts to run the second you start sweating. Primers and setting sprays are a simple solution to this serious problem. Are we being a little dramatic? Maybe, but you tell us one person who has ever looked cute with the makeup literally melting off her face. So before you get yourself into yet another sticky situation, try out one of these primers we’ve rounded up for you!
