Rules for choosing a base for makeup
The choice of foundation for make-up directly depends on the type of skin, since each of them has its own care needs. In some cases, a primer can replace foundation, BB cream, and sometimes even concealer.
For oily skin, a mattifying primer is suitable to hide shine and enlarged pores. It also protects against the effects of the sun better and prolongs the durability of makeup. No less suitable is an illuminating make-up base with a blur effect. Using a primer for oily skin can completely replace foundation.
For dry skin type, choosing a foundation for makeup is the most difficult. In this case, a primer with mother-of-pearl and creamy texture is suitable. It gives the face a slight shimmer effect, while moisturizing the skin.
For normal skin, almost any makeup base is suitable. Depending on the purpose of the make-up, you can choose a primer with a radiant or matte finish.
Matte or pearly?
Many girls are wondering: with which finish is it better to choose a primer? Of course, first of all, you should focus on the type of skin, and secondly, pay attention to the purpose of makeup. Using a mattifying makeup base helps achieve the perfect everyday look. Many are accustomed to the fact that smooth matte skin is the key to any beautiful make-up. However, a little soft shine won’t hurt even in daytime makeup.
A radiant make-up base is more suitable for girls with dry skin, and also looks great under an evening make-up. However, a little shine in the face will not hurt even with everyday makeup, as it significantly refreshes the skin. When applying a primer with mother of pearl, it is important not to overdo it so that there is a slight mysterious glow on the face, but no more. This foundation can even be used instead of a highlighter.
