A primer is a cosmetic designed to use under makeup. As the name suggests, it prepares the skin for makeup application. What it does is smooth skin, cover pores with a thin film to conceal fine lines slightly, and other skin imperfections. It’s like preparing a canvas for a painting.
Primers come in different varieties for smoothing, highlighting your skin, or keeping your makeup in place for longer periods.
I like primers that smooth my skin and help my makeup last longer. So I tried many before I decided on my top 2 favorites! They also happen to be cheap!
