Skin Perfecting Power Moves

Skin Perfecting Power Moves

Let's face it, we are always on the hunt for that one product that will keep your makeup looking flawless and fierce all day long. The answer to all of our long lasting makeup problems is very simple....PRIMER, PRIMER, PRIMER! In it's simplest form, primer is the first layer (after moisturizer) that goes onto your skin. Based on your skin type, it will help even out dry patches and/or mattify any troubling oily areas. 

We have taken the time to test out a few of our favorites and weed out any unnecessary purchases! 

{Our Top Picks}:

 Oily/Combination Skin

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer- This has become my (Alex) staple primer and is PERFECT for oily to combination skin. It has a liquid to powder finish and provides the perfect amount of hydration without creating excess oil. Also, a huge plus for those of us with problem skin, it is one of the few primers that is completely oil free! All you need is 1 - 2 pumps (about the size of a peanut) for all over coverage. 

One Heck of a Blot - In the colder months of the year, the Hourglass primer should do the trick for your entire face. However, along with the heat of the summer months comes the SHINE of the T-zone (between eyebrows, nose and chin). After you have applied Hourglass all over, take a small dot of One Heck of a Blot on the tip of your index finger. TAP the product into your trouble areas and let dry.

TIP: with super mattifying primers it is best to tap them into your skin using the tips of your fingers. Rubbing them into your skin can apply to much product to certain areas, making the rest of your makeup application uneven. 

Normal/Dry Skin

Stila One Step Correct - This is a great option for those of you looking to even out your skin tone and "normalize" it. It is good for soothing and correcting the skin tone. It's gel like formula blends into the skin wonderfully without you feeling like there is an extra layer under your makeup. With all of the skin specific agents, especially color correcting, out there right now, this is a great combination of all of them. Doesn't take much to cover the entire face, which is a huge plus!

Belif' Aqua Bomb - This is my (Abby) ALL time favorite moisturizer! It is great for combination skin as it never makes the skin too oily, but also provides complete hydration without making the skin appear oily. Sephora has this in a travel size for those of you who want to test it without purchasing the full size. They also have a creamier, heavier option called "The True Cream Bomb"  for those of you who are super dry and need a heavier application. I could rave all day about the Aqua Bomb - it is always an empty for me!! Can't say enough about this neutralizing, lightweight, hydrating, gel based moisturizer.
