Using a primer before I apply my makeup is something I’ve done forever. It’s a non-negotiable step in my makeup routine. First Aid Beauty has an exciting lineup of multi-tasking primers that prep your skin perfectly.
In the past, I’ve generally rotated between primers. Then I tried the Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer and find that I grab that one frequently. The reason is that the formula is packed with coconut water, minerals, light-reflecting micro-pearls and quinoa. It does an excellent job of priming, hydrating my skin, and giving it a glow. It’s a primer that can be used by all skin types. First Aid Beauty has just added two new primers to the mix, and they’re both excellent.
The Hello Fab Pores Be Gone Matte Primer uses the antibacterial power of Fig Extract, plus Salicylic Acid and other sebum-controlling acids in an oil-free formula to minimize the appearance of pores, prime, and give a soft-focus finish. There is a light, fresh scent. You can use this primer over clean skin before makeup, or wear it on it’s own for a matte, pore-free look. Great on oily, combination or normal skins and is available at Sephora.
The Ultra Repair Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer is also oil-free. This primer hydrates, brightens, and locks makeup in place. The formula has antioxidants to keep environmental stressors at bay, Hyaluronic Acid to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Colloidal Oatmeal, a FAB favorite, to calm and sooth skin micro-pearls to give the skin a luminous finish. It has a light, fresh scent. This primer can also be used on clean skin before makeup, or on it’s own for a natural finish. Best for normal, dry or combination skins; find it in ULTA.
The First Aid Primers are available now in stores as noted above, plus at firstaidbeauty.com. Do you use a primer? I’d love to know your favorite!
