What are makeup bases? Are they really necessary or just another extra step to add to your makeup routine? Not many women wear makeup bases (or makeup primers), but the truth is they do offer quite a bit of benefits.
A good makeup base will make your makeup stay longer, hold your oil at bay (or moisturize your face), and allow your application of makeup to go more smoothly overall. Some primers may even have SPF, providing you some additional protection from the sun. Apply your base after moisturizer and sun block, and you’re good to go with foundation.
