My cousin had posted - a long time ago- about foundation primer. I, being somewhat make-up challenged, thought, "Primer? That must be for the pros."

Fast forward to me reading a book
where the author raved and raved about primer. Something to the effect of "Put-down-the-book-drive-to-Sephora-and-buy-primer-right-now!"

She recommended this primer:

As well as this more affordable option:
Which I have been happily using for the last several weeks. I am glad to testify: it works. It's worth it. It goes under your make up, smooths out your skin, holds your make-up in place and generally makes you a little more beautiful. Not to mention this little $10 bottle will last for ages.

Yay for primer! I haven't had to use foundation here in the Czech Republic for the last year or so, but I know heading back to hot n' humid Florida will make my primer and foundation a must-have again. Thanks for the reminder.

Very interesting.

Do you use face lotion too? (And do you use it before or after?)

Do you recommend the book?

I use that- thr photo finish. Though its expensive it lasts much longer. And you'd probably like the loose powder they have. BTW I'm in labor at this exact moment- under heavy epidual of course!

I've been using the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer for a couple months now and LOVE it, so I'm defnintely going to try the face primer. Thanks for the tip, and for always being willing to share your wealth of information!
