Are you looking to glam up your look this year or maintain your makeup stash, but want to do so on a budget? I have a product that you can switch out and save money. My everyday go to primer is my Maybelline Master Prime by Face Studio. Maybelline has several different primers, the one I am referring to is for blur and redness control. And it’s not just great for day wear, it will last you through the night with the right setting spray. We’ll discuss that another time.
I’ve been using this product for years. Prior to, I would buy all the name brand and expensive ones. Thinking that because it’s Too Faced or Becca or Benefit it would work wonders. As you continue to purchase makeup over the years, you learn that each brand is really good at making certain products; therefore, spending your money with a brand for the sake of the cost is not going to always give you quality. Some brands are better off with their signature products, they aren’t necessarily a one-stop-shop. I started using Maybelline because everyone was raving the FIT Me liquid foundation. Again, I’m the type if I buy your foundation I might as well try your primer, concealer, and powders. This is how I began using Maybelline’s primer, and I have never went back to another one. I get so many complements on my makeup and people sometimes even go as far to ask what primer are you using. Only a real makeup gal would know to go that deep, most just stop at the foundation.
Anyway, this primer works well with my Mac Studio Fix Fluid and Nars Soft Matte foundation. This is not to say the primer will not go well with any other makeup brands’ foundation, because it will. I just choose to use these, for the most part. Moreover, my makeup last flawlessly all day with this primer. This primer helps my makeup to look smooth like I airbrushed my makeup on.
And the true beauty of using such a primer is that it is relatively inexpensive. It’s roughly $12. The big name brand primers run about $32. These prices go for both products being sold at 1 fluid oz. Now, there are mini versions of the more expensive primers for about $14, but you can get a standard size of Maybelline for twelve bucks.
Not only do I use this product on myself, when I do makeup on the actresses and extras on set, this is the primer that I use. The ladies’ makeup last the entire shoot. So, if you’re looking to cut back in your makeup expenses, perhaps give this product a try. If you have tried this product, or have any primer suggestions please share in the comments.
Stay Fabulous, Jewels!
