    Which Makeup Primer Should You Use?

    Makeup primers work as a base for your foundation, giving you longer lasting perfect skin. Makeup primers are an absolute godsend when trying to control excess shine and achieving a smoother complexion. Basically, if you haven’t been using a makeup primer, then you’re missing out!
