Makeup Mondays: Primer

I'm back babies! I can't believe how long my hiatus was. I'm finally getting in to a new kind of normal!

Today we're talking about primer!

mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer - $10

Smooth on this ultralightweight, fast-absorbing lotion before you apply anything else-it will not only provide a perfect canvas for your makeup, but will also help it last all day! Formulated with optical diffusers and oil-controlling ingredients to help conceal imperfections and fine lines. 0.4 fl. oz.

What is primer? Here's a recent (edited) article by Christa Jonna Lee from Glamour.com...

Face primers are relatively new in the beauty arena and for a while they made me a little doubtful about how my skin would react. I'd always wondered whether it would clog up my pores since the whole point of it is to fill in every crease and crevice, making your face smooth and ready for blush, foundation, etc. But I plunged ahead and tried a couple of the latest, brand-spankin'-new primers, and this is what I found:
First off, they don't clog up pores like I thought they would! The trick is to find one that that's oil-free.

Though they fill in lines for a face-lift effect, they stick to the surface so it doesn't invade and block up the pores.
  • Smooths the skin's surface and evens out the skin tone
  • Helps to better disguise blemishes and lets you blend your concealer/makeup in more evenly
  • Makes your foundation stick around for longer
  • Fills in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces shine
  • And finally, like I said before, it doesn't clog pores!

Great huh? If you have any questions, or would like to place an order, email me at lmwilliams2009(at)gmail(dot)com!


  1. I'm lazy when it comes to makeup, would I still need to put on foundation/concealer/powder, or would this suffice?

    P.S. I'm happy you're back :)

  2. Yes, you would need a little bit of foundation! I'm glad I'm back too!
