Real talk: Primer can be super-useful when used as the first step in your makeup routine. What can it do, you ask? Well, the answer is a whole lot of different things, depending on which one you use. Generally, primer is applied to help create a smooth base for the rest of your makeup. But some primers can also help brighten and illuminate the look of your skin. Keep reading to learn about the best primer to illuminate skin from L’Oréal Paris, and find out how to do a complete makeup look with it.
When it comes to makeup application, don’t skip out on primer the next time you’re putting on your face. Using a primer as the first step in your makeup routine can help smooth out the look of imperfections—like large pores or fine lines—to help ensure the rest of your products go on evenly. If you have oily skin, reaching for a matte (a.k.a. non-shiny) primer could be a good idea. However, if your skin is dry or dull, you may find it more useful to opt for an illuminating primer instead. Which leads us to…
Skin looking a little on the dull side? We know how frustrating that can be. It’s time to add the following primer to your makeup routine! We're talking about the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Booster. These are the top five reasons why you should try it:
1. It instantly brightens skin for a radiant finish.
2. It smooths and evens skin.
3. It provides long-lasting hydration.
4. Its formula is infused with nourishing oils.
5. It’s lightweight and non-greasy.
You can use this primer alone or under makeup to create a smooth, luminous base. Doesn’t get much better than that, now does it? For days that you’re in a rush, using this primer is awesome for a one-step beauty routine. But for those days when you have a little more time to spend on your appearance, we’ve got you covered.
Now that you know how this primer works, learn how to use it in a few different ways.
1. Use it alone on bare skin. No time to put on a full face of makeup? No problem! Simply apply this primer all over your face and you’re good to go.
2. Apply foundation over it. If you do have a few more minutes to spare, use this primer as the first step in your makeup routine and follow up with foundation.
3. Highlight key areas. Dab on a tiny bit of primer to the bridge of your nose and your brow bone for a nice highlight.
When it comes to perfecting your face with makeup, don’t just stop with primer. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for a full face using the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift line.
Step 1: Prime your skin. You know the drill now! Apply a layer of the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Booster as the first step in your morning makeup routine.
Step 2: Use a CC cream. Talk about a one-stop shop kind of product. The L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift CC Cream is formulated with color capsules infused in a lightweight nourishing texture to help correct dullness and even skin tone and texture. Over time, the formula, which is infused with vitamin C and calcium, helps deliver five age-correction actions: It helps reduce the appearance of age spots and dark spots, evens skin tone, brightens a dull complexion, smooths skin’s texture, and firms skin. Available in light and medium shades, this CC cream is also formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 20. Try applying it with a makeup blender, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, for a seamless finish.
Step 3: Swipe on some blush. The cream-to-powder formula of the L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blush is infused with tourmaline pearls. Lightly dust on Rose Gold Lift—a totally on-trend shade.
Step 4: Take it all off at the end of the day. Home for the night? Stash a bottle of micellar water and a few cotton rounds by your bed so you can easily remove your makeup, regardless of how tired you are. Micellar water has been a French-favorite cleanser for years—and for good reason. It’s powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—that act as a magnet to lift dirt, oil, and makeup up and away from the skin’s surface. Try the L'Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin, which hydrates and soothes. Just saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face.
