First things first, primers are non-negotiable. Let’s get the assumption that your makeup will stay in place irrespective of a primer out of the way, once and for all. No matter how amazeballs your base army is, it ain’t takin’ you anywhere if the primer isn’t leading it.
What you do with your face every morning is a work of art and no point pouring your creative skills on a canvas that’s not been prepped correctly. Though the primary responsibility of a primer is to help your makeup stay put come what may, primers these days also boast of pore blurring, anti-aging, skin brightening and hydrating abilities. Much to our delight, Nykaa Cosmetics just launched their first ever face primer and we’re thrilled. What’s so special about this one? When have we never enlightened you on that bit? Presenting the Nykaa Prep Me Up! Face Primer.
Pro Tip: In case you’re wondering where a primer fits into your elaborate skincare + makeup routine, prime time is right after you’re done with your CTM regime. Take a pea-sized amount on your fingertips and start blending it in an outward motion. If required, use a brush for smaller and more specific areas. Let it settle before layering it up with your base products in the usual order.
