The Perfect Prep And Prime Products

prep and prime, forever september, beauty blogger, lifestyle blogger, fashion blogger, makeup, elf, urban decay, glossier, loreal,
When I first got into makeup, I had no idea about primers, or anything products that help to prep your face for makeup. Fast forward a few years and I couldn't live without them. I have combination/oily skin, so makeup doesn't always sit well on my skin, but with these products thats not a problem for me.

I never understood why people would put moisturiser on straight before makeup, I couldn't see how that'd help. However, that was before I tried out the Glossier Priming Moisturiser. This is a super lightweight moisturiser, that sinks into the skin quickly and makes for a great base before applying makeup. Another primer I have totally fallen in love with recently, is the Elf Poreless Face Primer. I neglected this for the past few months, and decided to crack it out again and oh my god am I happy I did. This gives the most flawless, smooth base for makeup and genuinely makes your face look poreless. As someone who has quite open pores (lol), I'm always looking for a product that will counteract that, and this does the job. It smells like tea tree oil as well, which is actually really refreshing. 

If I didn't use anything on my eyelids, I'm pretty sure my eyeshadow would be gone by lunchtime. So before even priming them, I pop some of the Glossier Stretch Concealer over them, as an extra base for eyeshadow. This also gives a neutral base, ready for eyeshadow. On top of that, of course I have to use my trusty Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This really helps to keep my eyeshadow from moving, and I don't think I could live without it now, one of my makeup staples! 

And finally, gotta keep those eyebrows in place as well. For this, I use the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper. I love how small the wand is, so it really picks up every hair to keep them in place throughout the day. 

What products do you use to prep and prime?

  8. Always intrigued by the ELF priming products but in all honesty I don’t like using a primer because the texture is always so funny to me. I do want to give them another go though so might give the ELF a test! It’s jjst trial and error I guess and finding what works for you!
