The main purpose of a facial primer is to provide a smooth surface onto which you can easily apply make-up. Using a primer will also help ensure your make-up stays in place throughout the day. As well as providing smooth, flawless skin and longer lasting make-up application there are many other benefits of using a primer. Minerals included in many primer products help to even out skin tone, minimise shine, decrease breakouts and prevent drying of the skin.
