A Guide To Primer
By: E. Morgan
Although it is often the forgotten step of a makeup routine, applying primer can make a world of difference. Primer acts as a barrier between the skin and creates longevity within the products applied. Think of primer as the foundation to a home- it creates a firm base for the house to stand on.
A common ingredient in most primers is silicone. Although the FDA approved silicone as safe for cosmetic use, many worry about the potential negative effects that could come from using silicone on a daily basis. If your skin is sensitive silicone may cause you to be prone to acne and breakouts. However water-based primers are a better alternative and offer the same smooth foundation with a clear conscience.
