Prom Makeup: Foundation Primers

Hello Lovelies!
My brain has officially recovered from finals- I have missed you so!
Prom is coming up quickly for many,
so for the rest of the week I will post with tips and products to help you look your best!

The main thing is longevity, you want your makeup to last through out dinner and dancing.
However, you also want your makeup be comfortable and look effortless.

First off, you need a great base.
Try a foundation primer- this will create something for your makeup to adhere to,
it will smooth out the skin and fill-but not clog-your pores, counteract skin problems,
and help your makeup last.

For oily skin
Look for a product that is silicon based and mattifying
Givenchy Mister Mat
(available at Sephora for 31$)

For dry skin
You can use your moisturizer, my favorite to wear under makeup is:

Embryolisse- paraben free!
(this is a french product, you can get it on Amazon for 14$)
You may also use a very moisturizing primer

Boots Botanics Beauty Balm
(available for 15$ at Target)

For combination skin
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
(available at Sephora for 30$)

For rosy skin
look for a product that is green- it will mute the redness in your skin
Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base-
best used with the foundation from the same line
(available at Macy's or Sephora for 19$)

For yellow skin
A pink primer will counteract any sallowness
Makeup Forever Primer
(available at Sephora for 32$)

For normal skin

Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion
(available at Sephora for 30$)

hope this helps-
tomorrow I'm posting on eye shadow!
