The team here at Colorescience has formulated a unique range of primer makeup to suit all kinds of skin. Whether your issue is acne, redness, a generally dull complexion, or you just want your makeup to last longer, we have got something you will love.
All of these products have at least SPF 20 – up to SPF 50 – but it is important to remember to layer sunscreen over the top of it if you intend to be out in intense sunlight for many hours at a time. Protecting yourself from sun damage is the best way to fight premature skin ageing.
First of all, it depends on what you mean by necessary. You won't cease to exist without a good primer, but most people will agree that you need it if you want your makeup to look great and for it to last in to the night without wearing away. So, yes it is necessary, but now let's go back and talk about what Colorescience primer makeup products do exactly.
It is often thought that foundation is the first step in applying makeup, hence the name, but it is actually the primer that should go first. By using one of our primer makeup products you are creating another layer between your makeup and your precious skin. This extra layer gives you protection in two ways: it protects your skin from your makeup, and it protects your makeup from the oils and sweat that will be unavoidable as the hours go by.
Having this first layer of primer also acts to smooth out the surface of the skin, even skin tone, and of course the ultimate goal is to help your makeup stay intact for longer without deteriorating from sweat and skin oils.
