While moisturizer softens skin, editorial and celebrity makeup artist Stephen Dimmick points out that primer prepares skin for your favorite tinted moisturizer or foundation, giving it something to hold onto so it lasts throughout the day.
Primers are even available just for your eyelids to prevent creasing.
Can moisturizer act as a primer?
While your moisturizer hydrates your skin, a primer is literally priming your skin for the makeup that’s going on top of it, and locks that makeup in place all day.
Do you use primer after moisturizer?
Always apply moisturizer before priming, as it makes your primer application even. Once your primer is on, allow a few minutes for it to set before applying foundation.
Can you use primer without makeup?
Think you can’t wear primer alone? If you’re wanting smooth and even skin without all the heaviness of foundation, simply apply primer. You’ll look fresh faced and put together.
