#VellaSays – Which Primer should you use?

I tend to say primers are not always necessary for the everyday woman however the reality is they actually do help your makeup stay on longer, and since most of us have long days then they can definitely come in handy.

First of all, the primary purpose of face primer is to help achieve a smooth, even complexion whether this be to minimize redness, reduce pore size, add moisture to the skin or reduce oils. Then you are all ready for your makeup application! They help to correct minor skin imperfections based on what your specific needs are. Now I know there are SO MANY out there but let me break down a few of my favourites to hopefully make your decision making easier :)

Here are a few of my #VellaApproved Favourites that I always keep close in my Make Up Kit:

This primer, color corrector, brightener and anti-aging skincare serum does it all with the help of Stila’s Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex™: Instantly makes imperfections disappear: Reduces redness, brightens skin, minimizes fine lines, wrinkles, pores and pigmentation.
