It’s that time of the year when the season starts to change. Do you know what that means? New makeup! I don’t like to use the same kinds of primer for winter and spring. I feel your skin changes as the weather changes so your makeup should change too. Every morning after I wash my face, I always moisturize. It’s important to moisturize before you put on makeup to avoid dry patches, and it’s easier to blend foundation into moisturized skin. After moisturizing, I put on my primer. I know some people feel primer is useless, but I feel primer allows the foundation to go on smoother and makes it last longer. During the fall/winter, I was using Smashbox Photo Finish Light Foundation Primer ($36). It’s great for acne-prone, sensitive, or oily skin.
Now that spring is approaching, I want a more freshed-face dewy look. A great primer for this look is Fresh Twilight Freshface Glow ($36). It is also light-weight. You can’t even tell you have it on! A little goes a long way, so a tube will last you months. I also use this as a highlighter. I love how it is not glittery like most highlighters are.
These products are very easy to find. You can buy them off the Smashbox or Fresh website. I find it best to test out the products in person before purchasing. You can find Smashbox at Sephora, Ulta, department stores, and other beauty specialty store locations. Fresh you can find at Sephora or at their store locations.
