Heat Proof Primers | 2018

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Welcome Back!



Today I wanted to share with you the primers that have been helping me beat the heat this summer. On these hazy hot days we've been having I usually skip the makeup all together but sometimes we have events where we just don't want too. Your best friends wedding, your cousins bridal shower, we all have our weekends full of important events during the summer season. These three primers have improved the longevity of my makeup on the days I need it to last all day. 

(Disclaimer: I do have normal to dry skin, so these might not work for someone with oily skin)


First up, we have the Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter. It is a color neutralizing primer with a natural finish and it helps tackle the look of dullness while brightening your complexion. It is super hydrating, and helps your makeup last all day long. It comes out of the jar violet, but it applies sheer. Sometimes I even wear this without makeup for extra hydration and brightness. You can find it, here
(Free of Parabens and Sulfates) 


Next we have the dr. brandt Pores No More Luminizing Primer. This one adds a beautiful dewy look to the skin, while smoothing out the look of pores. I don't have huge pores to fill in, but it truly does help with smoothing the look of my undereye, and the pores that I do have on and around my nose. I apply this to my forehead, my nose, my upper lip, my cheeks, and chin. It truly does help the makeup stay in all of those areas, and it leaves my skin looking healthy and fresh. I received this in my Boxycharm and have been using it ever since. You can find it, here.


Last but not least we have the NYX Hydratouch Primer. This primer is the most affordable of the primers mentioned today. This is another color neutralizing primer with chamomile and green tea to brighten the skin. I love these types of primers because they truly do make a difference in your skin before applying makeup. Without a great base, your makeup isn't going to look the best it could. If you've been following me for a while, you know how important skin care and prep is for makeup performance. I apply this all over my face and neck to get a nice and even base. You can find it, here


Hopefully this helps some of you beat the heat, so you can enjoy your events without having to worry about your makeup. The last thing I'd like to mention is to load up on the setting spray. I do a couple layers when I truly need it to last for more than 8 hours. 

As always, thanks for reading.
