Applying Makeup 101

All of my friends know that I am a product slut. Not in a bad way of course, I just LOVE trying new things and seeing the difference, if any it can make on my skin. Look I want to look young forever too you know. A friend of mine just recently asked me the proper way to apply a foundation her face. She suffers from patches of dry skin and has a classic t-zone situation going on as well. When she would apply a foundation to her skin, she found that the dry areas tended to “cake up” her foundation, while the other areas seemed to not have an even coverage. I suggested she start with a make up primer.

I recently tried a brand new released makeup primer from a skin care company that I love, Ask me which one!  This company touts that all of their skin care products, along with their cosemtics are pure, safe and beneficial for your skin. This product is supposed to be ideal for enlarged pores, and reduces fine lines and minizes wrinkles anyplace on the face. So I figured I would give it a shot.

I have to say I was very impressed with the primer, having never used one in the past. People actually had noticed a difference in my skin. This primer is called Base De Maquillace, it comes in a pretty 29 ml glass bottle with a handy pump applicator. The consistency was quite nice, it had a silky quality to it. It seemed to go on dry and did not leave an oily base on my skin. The primer actually felt very nice. After applying the primer I applied the tinted moisturizer I use everyday. I have to admit, my face actually had a nice dewey quality about it. It actually did lessen the fine lines I had around my eyes (not too close as its not an eye cream) and my forehead. My skin felt nourished and moisturized. This Makeup Primer gets a thumbs up!
