We hate to break it to you, but the only reason your makeup sticks to you or by you is because of your primer. Without it, watch your makeup fade away in a couple of hours no matter how ingenious your skills. Think of it as the adhesive to your makeup that smoothens your skin’s texture and does the unimaginable by blurring open pores.
Why have we been resisting primers for eons, is the mystery. But with new-age makeup formulas stepping up, you don’t need to invest in a whole other product. Want to know why? Because now all their formulas are infused with priming properties. Ah-ha, you heard us. One product does the job of two. And listed below are the site-wide hot sellers doing the rounds. Get your hands on them, pronto.
2. In Your Base
You can’t do without your primer, nor can you do with the icky, cakey feeling it brings. Especially when you’re aiming for that sheer or dewy brilliance. Lightweight foundations that can prime ought to be a prerequisite. It slashes layers, puts the money where its mouth is and is pretty bang for the buck.

5. In Your Nail Polish
First there’s a base coat that acts as a priming layer. Then comes two layers of your actual varnish, dare you say no to a topcoat, and like it or not, you’ve got to wait a few minutes for your tips to dry. Well, the saga continues if you’re talking gel nails or extensions. Ugh! Now that’s why you bank upon nail polishes that double as primer. It’s saves you the time and gives you the leeway to paint on-the-go.
