the end of my endless search: the perfect primer

I have been on a mission over the last year to find the perfect primer. Primer is necessary to achieve flawless, stay-in-place makeup and to keep it all day long, and for some reason, I was never satisfied with any products I tried. Thankfully, after many trials and tests, I think I’ve landed on a winner:

Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion

This primer is available in two formulas: Brightening and Pore Perfecting. I use the Brightening one. It’s a lightweight, gel texture, sheer on the skin. Best of all, a little bit goes a long way, so this $30 tube will last awhile!

I first came across Urban Decay primer when my friend, Jenea, gave me the Eyeshadow Primer Potion as part of a gift set. It is magic for maintaining bold, bright eyeshadow all day long.

After washing and moisturizing my face in the morning, I coat my face and eyelids with a thin layer of the Urban Decay primers, then let them set while I curl my eyelashes and pencil in my eyebrows. This really is the best primer I’ve found – it holds my makeup in place all day!

Though I love Urban Decay, Benefit Porefessional primer comes in as a close second. I love its creamy texture; it leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized.

Primer has definitely become one of the secret weapons in my beauty regimen. My makeup just wouldn’t be the same without it!
