Don’t skip the face primer—especially if you have dry skin. A hydrating primer can add to your moisturizing regime as well as help lock in makeup, stopping it from settling into creases and wrinkles, or dry patches. For best results, use the primer after your moisturizer. By applying primer, you will also find that you won’t need to use as much foundation, since it forms a smooth barrier over the skin that helps makeup glide on, as well as minimize imperfections. Makeup mavens recommend applying primer by using the fingers, since the massaging action is also a boon to your complexion.
