Click play to find out which primer makes the cut!

For the ingredient deck on these two products, they are incredibly identical. Both of them share these ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, and Phenoxyethanol.

The base for good makeup comes from really good skincare, and believe it or not, primer is a crucial component of healthy skincare. When you are indulging in colour cosmetics and foundations, 2 things are very important to use – a good moisturiser and a good primer. Since we’re talking about primers today, you must know that primers create a bridge between skincare and your colour cosmetics and it’s literally like putting a sheet over your moisturiser to protect your skin from the effects of cosmetics and the other harmful elements. Pallavi Symons talks about the number of primers she’s used through the span of her career, but recently she has taken a strong liking to the Kryolan Ultra Underbase, because it has the benefits of a moisturiser as well as a primer. It works very well for her on shoots and for herself. The gel finish of the products give a very cool and soothing effect on application, and it sets semi-matte, which is amazing! The Kryolan Ultra Underbase works very well even for someone whose skin is prone to acne and breakouts, because of its texture and formula.

Summer Primer Smackdown!! Makeup Forever Vs. Becca

????You’re Reading The Description Box WooHoo!! YOU ROCK ????

**Here are the DEETS I forgot to mention**

UPDATE 7/9/16I pressed the primer in as opposed to rubbing it in and Ohhhhhhh Emmmmmm Geeeeeee!!!!! Definitely using it all summer 😉

-It was 93 degrees where I was
-I wore my makeup until 11pm and I only had to blot once
-In person the makeup forever side allowed a little more oil to seep through while the Becca side appeared more matte (maybe it was the sun adding shine **shrugs shoulders** lol).

In a nutshell Makeup Forever is still a holy grail of mine if all I want to do is use a mattifying primer, but becca will now be added to the holy grail family when I not only want to mattify, but when I am on a mission to conceal pores.

They both work great, but I must say lately I’ve had to blot with whatever primer I use, EVEN these two. Becca’s claim to give you mattified skin after 12 hours didn’t come to pass on this hot summer day so I will keep you updated in the fall and winter months.

I’m going to talk about some of the benefits of primer. First, I’m going to start by applying it to the middle of the face. Right now, I’m using the Makeup Forever HD. This is actually a blue tinted primer. Basically, the tint of blue is going to brighten her skin tone.

Primers come in a lot of different shades. The blue, like I said, brightens. I also have a green one here which corrects redness. I also have this one which is a deeper, more rich tone and that actually is going to darken any type of foundation that you have, or just give yourself a little more color.

Say, you’re feeling a little dull or sallow. You want a little more color, you want to look a little more tan, but not putting a darker foundation color on your face, you could add a little bit of a darker primer, and there you go.

So, yep, I’m just using my fingers, applying it all throughout the face. This one, specifically, is a water-based primer. There are two main different types, water-based and silicone-based. I like silicone because it really smooths out pores. The main function of a primer is to minimize fine lines and pores, and increase the longevity of your makeup. It really makes a huge difference if you do apply that.

The other kind of primer would be a water-based primer, which I suggest more for oilier skin types, acne prone skin types, just because the silicone can sometimes kind of seep into those pores. You don’t really want that if you’re breaking out or you’re a little bit oilier.

So, we’ve applied the primer to half of the face now. I’m going to continue applying to the other side. Like I said, there are different color-correcting types of primers, but there are also plenty of other primers that you can use.

I also love primers with radiance. If you like that kind of dewy, sun-kissed J.Lo. glow type of look, you can use a primer with radiance. I love the Lauren Mercier one. There are also primers that have skincare properties. I know I have one that corrects dark spots overtime, which is really nice if you have any issues with pigmentation.

So as you see, this primer has just brightened her skin up so that when we put the foundation on top it’s going to look a little brighter and her skin is going to look a little smoother. The next type of primer I want to talk about is actually eye shadow primer. The one that I’m using right now is Urban Decay.

Eye shadow primer is amazing. It really, really increases the longevity of your eye makeup. It increases the pigment so that it looks a little darker. You won’t have to use as much shadow because it really picks up that pigment.

So I’m just kind of, once again, using a finger, applying it all over the lid. You really want to make sure since eye shadow primers are a little bit thicker than the ones for your face that you’re getting it very evenly across the entire lid. This is great for people who have oilier lids and find that they get creasing right here of their shadow.

You use such a tiny amount for both eyes. There are other eye shadow primers, too, as well. I know I have one by Tart, which you can use 360 around the eye on the top lid and also around the bottom. Say, you have concealer that creases as well, you can use it both places. That one, the Tart one also has kind of pearl essence so it brightens the eyes too, which is nice for dark circles under eyes. But these would be my top tips for primers.

I did not get paid to put these primers on my face. I did not get paid to tell you I like these primers. No one paid me to have perfect skin, oh wait, I don’t have perfect skin! bwaaaaa haaa haaa haa I did not pay them to make these primers. I wish I could pay someone to edit my videos. I was up til 4am editing this video on my birthday! hee hee hee No one paid me to put the Smashbox primer or BB cream on today, that I am wearing, but I put it on because it’s stinkin’ amazing and I love it! I wouldn’t make a video unless I love something and I think it’s awesome! Dinair did not pay to mention them. Model in a Bottle has no clue I’m loving their spray or making this video and Urban Decay didn’t pay me to wear their lip liner and MAC also has no clue I’m wearing Shy Girl and love all their lipsticks! ha hah a

Huge hugs from your homegirl, Kandee
