A Cheap Foundation Primer

Share it Please
Do you use liquid foundation? Mineral foundation? Cream-To-Powder foundation? If you use 'any' foundation this info will have you jumping for joy. Let me ask another question do you use foundation primer? If you have no idea what it let me explain it you. You know when you paint your nails. You would use a base coat before you apply the color to your nails, right? If you were to just apply the color directly to your nails it may not come out as smooth and pretty. That is exactly what foundation primer does but it's for your face. You are to use it after you have applied your face moisturizer which should have an SPF ;). This is when you would apply the foundation primer. BEFORE YOU APPLY ANY MAKE-UP.

                    There are so many foundations primer on the market to from so many wonderful companies to choose from. Smashbox, Ulta, Laura Mercier, MAC, Rimmel,  and the list goes on. It's really not uncommon for a foundation primer to cost in the range of $10.00-$40.00. Now I have found an alternative that is cheaper. It is (drum roll please...) Monistat Smoothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel!! Yes, you did read that correctly! It has most of the same ingredients in it that primers do! Plus, it works! You can find it in drug stores and mass chain store(Target and Wal-mart)  Let me tell you one thing... THIS WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE in how the rest of your make-up goes on and stays on all day. The foundation that you apply will be really nice and even. I have VERY oily skin so when I don't use a foundation primer it breaks up my make-up during the day very quickly. With the primer on my face; my make-up will stay for the better part of the day. So what are you waiting for give it try. Until next time....
