Why You Should Be Using A Primer

Why You Should Be Using A Primer
Like a canvas, your skin benefits from having a base for makeup to hold onto. This base is called primer; this product helps prepare your skin for makeup after skincare. There are many different formulations of primers, all of which have different uses. There are pore-filling primers, hydrating primers, mattifying primers, oil primers, spray primers, eye primers and lip primers. These products not only prepare your skin and help makeup last longer, but they also smooth, brighten, moisturize, target acne, and can even fade fine lines and wrinkles. Primer formulations have evolved tremendously over the years, that some even claim to perfectly smooth out your imperfections without the need to use anything else. Here at Rude Cosmetics, we have the best cruelty-free, paraben-free, and organic primers for you to choose from!
The most common primer is the pore-filling primer. These smoothing primers are typically silicone-based and have a cream-like consistency, which help create a perfect base for complexion makeup. They can be hydrating or mattifying, but their primary purpose is to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines. A perfect example of these would be our cruelty-free and paraben-free Rude Cosmetics POREnographic Primers; it comes in both Hydrating and Mattifying formulas, assisting you in targeting your skin’s specific needs.
There are also oil primers, which add moisture to the skin to create a supple base for makeup. These primers are typically very hydrating, and often have a brightening effect. Our Rude Cosmetics Wishes Do Come True Primer Oil is hands down one of the best top face primers of 2021 with its lightweight and hydrating formula, as well as its soothing scent. It helps blur all imperfections and the appearance of fine lines, leaving your skin looking and feeling bright and healthy. Most oil-based primers can also add a dewy effect to your skin for a hydrated look, but if you want more of a glow, our Rude Cosmetics Shimmering Primer is the ideal alternative. This cruelty-free, paraben-free, and vegan primer is not only lightweight, but will also help you achieve a perfect lit-from-within glow!
If you are someone who doesn’t usually wear primer, or if you don’t have any fine lines or acne spots that need blurring (lucky you!), a makeup primer spray is the best option for you. A primer spray will be even lighter and gentler on the skin. By providing a “sticky” surface for your complexion makeup to hold onto, it will help your makeup last all day long! Our Rude Cosmetics Makeup Primer Spray is a matte finish formula that is guaranteed to keep oil away and your makeup in place all day and all night.
Don’t be mistaken however, primers aren’t solely just for your complexion! Eye primers help your eyeshadow looks become more pigmented and helps them last way longer. These types of primers also prevent creasing. Our Rude Cosmetics Prelude Eyeshadow Primer has a creamy formula that will keep your eyeshadow stay smooth and crease-free all day long. It is a concealer-type primer that is so amazing, it can even be used to cover up any unwanted blemishes as well. 
Another type of primer is a lip primer. Lip primers are formulated to help your lips stay hydrated and smooth. They create an even canvas to keep your lip products, such as matte or liquid lipstick, last longer. Lip primers can also help lip products feel more comfortable on the lips. Our Rude Cosmetics PussyCat’s Purr Lip Primer has just that effect, perfecting your pout for all types of lip looks! 
Primers can be a lifesaver if you are someone who needs a little extra help getting that flawless base. Whether you want a glowy and refreshing look, a matte and solid base, a smooth and blurred base, or just need your makeup to last longer, Rude Cosmetics has arguably the top, if not best, face primers of 2021.
