Importance of Primer and how to choose right primer for your skin
Many of you might like me have skipped using primer before makeup, thinking it just and extra step or just plain forgot to apply it. Primer however is the key product to perfect your makeup. It will keep your makeup for longer and let you apply it more flawlessly and quickly. It is the reason you see flawless makeup on pro's which always make you think, how they manage such look. However don't try to rush and buy the famous primer you saw on your social media. Get the one which suits your skin type as where the right primer can help you get flawless and long lasting makeup the wrong one can ruin all your efforts.

When you should apply primer?
After applying moisturizer, primer must be first step in makeup. It will provide you with smooth canvas to paint and draw. Plus the good primer contains ingredients which protect your skin from environment and makeup ingredients like Tatcha the silk canvas protector primer. Apart from that you can find ones for redness, pigmentation, pores, sebum or to hydrate your skin. Depending on your skin and issues, you can find the one that will suit you. Primers can be for face, eyes or lips. Where face primer can help you with foundation or other base products, eyeshadow primer will not only keep those powdery shadows in place but also enhance their color and pigmentation. Lip primers can help you fill lines in lips and keep your lip color in place for longer.

Oily skin needs the primer which can keep their sebum controlled and provide long lasting mattifying finish. Silicon base primers are better for such skin as they fill pores and provide barrier between skin and makeup. Also look for the ones which have oil free formula and claims to control shine plus provide matte or natural finish for more then 7 hours.Also look for the primers which contain salicylic acid. Vitamin C, Ratinol then it is biggest plus as it will keep the oil at bay.

Primers for dry skin will keep the skin hydrating under your makeup, protecting it from breaking or cakey look. They will also nourish your skin and help the foundation to blend easily rather then tugging. Stay clear from matte primers and look for oil based like essential oils or one with Hyaluronic acid. They will help the foundation from cracking and gives it glowy finish.
