Makeup Primers – Over 60 & Fab

Today’s installment of Over 60 & Fabulous, we are talking Makeup Primers. As we age our skin takes on a texture of its own and if we can make it look smooth and softer, why shouldn’t we. If you haven’t been using makeup primer, then you’re really missing out. If you wear a full face of make or just use a BB cream or tinted moisturizer, makeup primers are great when trying to combat shine, create a smooth surface to apply foundation. There is a lot of debate when it come to makeup primers, if they are really needed or not. Well I love them!

One of the  benefits of using a makeup primer is it seals your pores and will help even out skin tone and texture.
Makeup Primers make your skin appear much more youthful, they smooth out fine lines. This creates a more youthful appearance and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkle

One of the main reasons for using a makeup  primer is because it helps your makeup stay on longer. Primers help decrease sweating through the pores, which makes your makeup stay in place longer. They also act as a natural shield for dust, water and debris that might make your makeup wear off. This is my favorite reason for using one.

Makeup primers come in all kinds of formulas and textures for all skin types. You need to find one that works for your skin, and as with all makeup products always test it to make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients. I am always saying not everything work for everyone.

Makeup Primers

 

 

Fusion of Color Cosmetics offered 2 different makeup primers one is Perfect Canvas Primer, which is more of a silicone based one. It is thicker and glides on smoothly over the skin.

 

 

 

Sheer Perfection Makeup Primers

 

Our newest member to the makeup primer family is Sheer Perfection Matte Primer, this one is loaded with good things for your skin and is a thinner formula than Perfect Canvas Primer.  Sheer Perfection like Perfect Canvas Primer can be worn under makeup or alone. Sheer Perfection can also be added to your foundation if you want to sheer it out, especially if you use a cream and it is too heavy for you.
As we age if a product helps us smooth our skin and helps soften those fine lines and wrinkles and possibly have ingredients that are good for our skin, I am all for it!
