Fake flawless skin
Primer is usually applied under the base. The job of a face primer is to fill in the pores and fine lines, creating a smooth-looking skin. If you pick a tinted primer like the Tinted Perfection Base Primer & Pore Minimiser, you can use it all by itself on days you are in no mood for heavy makeup. It fills in the pores and gives you a little coverage. Wear it over your moisturizer and flaunt flawless, matte skin all day long.
