Buy Face Primers on SSBeauty

For some makeup is exciting and fascinating, while for others it might even be a little overwhelming. At SSBeauty, our objective is not only to provide you with the best makeup products but also decode every makeup step for you. We help you understand why you need certain makeup products, like face primers, so that you can make an informed choice and ace your primer makeup. Read on to know more about face primers online.

What is a Face Primer?

The first step of acing any makeup look involves a suitable face primer. But what exactly is a face primer? Is it like a foundation? Not really. Does one even need a face primer if they’re already going to apply foundation? Yes, they do. Think of your primer as the foundation (pun intended!) for all the other makeup products that will follow. Applying primer before your makeup helps even the skin’s texture by smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Primer makeup is about giving your skin a protective and even base. At SSBeauty, we have a wide collection of some of the best face primers that are moisturizing and enriched with the right ingredients.

Benefits of Face Primer

Before purchasing face primers online, it’s important to know the various benefits of the product.
  • Primer makeup is essential if you want to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines on your face. A smooth, even base is ideal for makeup application.
  • The best face primers are always lightweight to ensure that your makeup does not look cakey.
  • For people with oily skin, a face primer helps their makeup last longer by absorbing excess oil. It also prevents the oil from mixing with the makeup. Browse through SSBeauty to find the best primers for oily skin.
  • Applying face primer before foundation keeps the skin hydrated for as long as you wear your makeup.
  • Face primers are enriched with skin-loving ingredients.

How to Apply Face Primer?

  • Step 1: Complete your skincare routine and wait a couple of minutes for the moisturizer to get absorbed.
  • Step 2: Squeeze out a small amount of face primer on your palm and dot your entire face with it. Slowly blend the product. Focus on the relatively oilier parts of your face, like the nose.
  • Step 3: Allow the primer to settle for a couple of minutes before applying other makeup products.

Face Primer Makeup Tips

Here are some important tips to keep in mind while applying face primer:
  • Buy a face primer that suits the needs of your skin. There are many different types of face primers: mattifying primers, illuminating primers, moisturizing primers, etc. If you have combination, oily or dry skin, then pick a primer accordingly. At SSBeauty, you can get the best primers for dry skin, oily skin and combination skin delivered directly to your doorstep.
  • Always prep your skin with moisturizer first before applying face primer.
  • Do not apply excessive amounts of face primer. Even a pea-sized amount can go a long way.
  • If you’re a fan of light makeup looks and prefer skipping foundation, opt for tinted moisturizers.
  • Your foundation and primer must be compatible with each other.
  • Do not miss your eyelids. Applying primer on and around your eyelids can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.
