Makeup primers are one of the best inventions ever when it comes to makeup. A makeup primer will help makeup go on more smooth, minimize pores and fine lines. Not only that, a makeup primer makes sure that makeup lasts on your face all day long, though heat, humidity -- all the elements of the day. Makeup primers are not solely for the face either. There are makeup primers for eyes and lips too and all are part of my makeup routine. If they are not a part of your makeup routine, you need to check out this list and make at least one a part of yours.
