How to Use Foundation Primer | Makeup Tutorials


“Hi, I am Patricia Longo and I’m a celebrity
make-up artist. I’ve worked with models from Sports Illustrated,
like Brooklyn Decker and Julie Henderson to Alec Baldwin at 30 Rock. All those things that experts do that the
average person doesn’t know how to do will learn how to do it on these videos. Flawless Face: Foundation Primer People don’t
know why they wear foundation primer. Primer is actually the middle man, the middle
man between your moisturizer and your foundation. So when you put on your moisturizer I always
recommend putting it on at least twenty minutes before you do the rest of your makeup. That way your moisturizer sets and now you
can put the primer on which basically separates the moisturizer from the foundation. If you don’t use a primer, by the end of the
day your foundation actually seeps into the moisture and once your moisturizer absorbs
the foundation, it’s pretty much gone. So that’s why I recommend using a primer,
it basically separates the two and keeps your foundation on a lot longer throughout the
day. Now there are so many different primers out
there, right Isabella? And you have to feel comfortable with which
one fits more your skin. So if you have really oily skin, you don’t
want to use too heavy of a primer and I believe Laura Mercier makes one of the best primers
out there. It’s very good for all combination, dry, oily,
whatever skin you have, this one really works. Then there are ones that are a little heavier
and some that have shimmer in them. I’m going to go today with the Laura Mercier
one. It comes in a tube and I put just a dimes
size, very, very small, not a lot. And I put it on like moisturizer. So what I do is I dab it here and then what
I do is I put it on the face, dabbing, on her T zone, on her cheeks. It gives a nice moist feeling on the skin. Doesn’t it feel nice? Very soothing and light, it doesn’t feel heavy,
right? People always go “”How many layers do I have
to have on my skin?”” But as long as you put the moisturizer on
twenty minutes before the primer, it won’t feel so gooky. And now I just blend it in, as if I were blending
in my moisturizer and it seeps right into the skin. And once you have your primer on, you can
immediately start with your foundation. ”

  1. To whoever says that good skin doesn't need makeup , makeup isn't to change the way you look , but to accentuate your features , to help you make the best of what you have . That's everyday natural looking makeup anyway . Of course make up can be used to make you look like a totally different person .

  2. Thank you so much this is so helpful video👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  3. Waiting twenty minutes for your moisturizer to set is ridiculous! We never wait twenty minutes on set for a moisturizer to set up on an actor before the make-up application! This type of product is great for the people that need it. Oily skins, humid regions, to smooth out a rough texture of skin or maybe your wedding day to minimize touch ups and keep a studio make-up application, fresh and camera ready. Do not let an artist or salesperson sell you this unless you need it. Nuff said.SeriousSkin
