As we all know, priming your skin is an essential step in achieving flawless makeup looks. A tinted primer, when worn under foundation, creates a smooth and even-toned base for your makeup. Tinted face primers can also be worn on their own without foundation for a light, natural look. If you’re planning to use tinted face primer on its own, always look for a formula that contains SPF to protect yourself from the sun. You can also find tinted primers for your eyelashes, eyelids, and lips. When priming your eyes, look for a tinted primer that’s a similar shade to your eyeshadow to help deepen the color.
