Prime Purchase

Written by Alyssa

While recently perusing Sephora for a new foundation, a make-up artist approached me and asked if I had been using a primer pre-makeup application. I had absolutely no idea what she was asking me, and apparently it was quite obvious with my facial expression. She directed me towards the Make Up For Ever section and explained to me that if I use a primer before I apply foundation, it will allow the makeup to stay on longer, the application will be smoother and my face will have a nice “glow”. Glancing in the mirror at my rather pallid complexion, I figured I would give this primer a shot, and boy am I glad I did.

Exclusively to Sephora, Make Up For Ever’s HD Microperfecting Primer comes in 7 different varieties for all different skin types and tones. The one I purchased was the neutral tone, which adds luminosity to the skin. The primer has a very light, clean smell, and could probably be substituted for a moisturizer, depending on the dryness of your skin. My makeup has stayed put since I’ve been using this and it gives my face an almost flawless look. Totally worth every penny.
