Hi my angels! I’ve been away for quiet sometime. Had to travel to my country for a couple of weddings and what was supposed to be a 2 week trip turned into nearly a two month vacation. lol
Weddings! weddings! weddings! When we talk about weddings, we go into all kind of details of course from decor, theme and food to guests, dresses, rehearsals etc etc. Now if there is one things which may not be talked about much but is part of everyone’s preparation, and that is make up.
Speaking of makeup, primers have become a huge deal over the past few years. There was a time when no one ever thought of applying a primer before foundation or all the other products that have become our makeup essentials lately. Coming to primers, now we all do understand what difference a good primer can actually make to our overall makeup. and i have to say here that i’m not talking about people who think women only wear makeup bcuz they are ugly and they try to hide their flaws (that is a whole different topic and I would be coming to that soon). A good primer can do wonders to your makeup and how it stays on for your special events. I have been a huge fan of the ultimate benefit porefessional primer. Having tried good primers, not-so-good primers, Nivea after shave, primer oil and even a bit of vaseline, I can easily say that each one has a different finish and by that i mean the way your makeup looks can actually depend a whole lot on primers.
This primer that i’m talking about today is pretty well known in the world of beauty of course. Those of you who religiously apply SPF before stepping out, this one serves all your needs for sure. For starters, it comes in a white glass bottle with a black dropper on top. The bottle is opaque which is fantastic to keep the ingredients intact and also it helps keep the SPF from expiring prematurely . The product itself is almost like water but thicker, its a whitish liquid not oily at all. The product has light white tint but it becomes absolutely clear once you start applying it on your skin. The best thing you will notice about this primer is that its not sticky like those typical SPF’s. It leaves the skin much smoother and gives it a bit of glow which is wonderful. The foundation goes on a lot more smoother and helps last much longer. It will help keep your foundation from separating but its not something that will stay on for 12 to 14 hours. Will it stay on and keep your makeup fresh for a reasonable amount of time? Yes!
Now I must add here that I’m not someone who religiously applies sunscreen so this primer could actually be more beneficial for women like me. It’s not very light on the pocket though.
You can get it for $64 at www.sephora.com,

This product could be a great way to keep your skin safe from the harmful effects of the sun, it provides your makeup a smoother canvas making it appear less damaged and less wrinkly. For people who have been using it know what i’m talking about. Wouldn’t hurt to do something for yourself now would it?! Do keep in mind that this primer is not for all of you out there. You have to try it and then decide if it suits you or not.
Let me know what you think.
