Product Focus: Face Primer

If there’s ever been a best time to look for a good primer, it’s summer. I find that my skin breaks out more in the summer, so making sure I have a good base for my foundations is especially important so that my imperfections stay covered. That’s why I always use MUD’s Face Primer.

Primer is important not only because it sticks to whatever coordinating products you place on top of it, but also because it creates a protective barrier between your skin and your foundation. Our primer is silicone based, which means not only is it compatible with oil and silicone based foundations, but also it’s designed to stay on the surface of the skin to create a smooth, flawless foundation application. To use, just take a very small amount of product (I use about the same amount as a pencil eraser) and smooth it all over the face prior to foundation application.

But primer isn’t just for foundation! On hot summer days, I know I don’t always want to wear a full face of make-up. However, a light layer of primer makes my skin feel soft and silky. I like to make MUD’s primer the last step in my skincare routine to prepare it for make-up no matter how much product I’ll be putting on. Mix it with your foundation or pair it with a little corrector and you’ll have a wonderful, light, everyday summer base.

PRO TIP: Primer can work with powder products too! Mix MUD’s Face Primer with our eye colors, cheek colors, bronzers, or cake eyeliner for more intensity.

When the weather is warm, a lightweight primer is key. Luckily, this primer keeps me covered for a long day out in the sun. MUD’s primer can be purchased at our online store, here.
