I can't survive summer's sweltering heat without a primer. My foundation slips, slides, and melts away without it. If you can relate, you'll want to shop these six cooling primers perfect for summer's sweatiest days.
When it comes to keeping your makeup on, few things are more effective than a solid primer. Primers not only smooth your skin and blur out discoloration, acne, and texture, but they can also make your makeup last through anything. Primers are the foundation for your foundation, creating a barrier between your skin and the product, helping create an airbrushed look. You can buy primers in liquids, as sprays, sticks, or even gel moisturizers. The options are endless!
Primers come in matte formulas, dewy formulas and some even have a cooling effect. Yep, they can keep you feeling fresh and cool in the heat of summer! Ingredients like citrus refresh your skin while aloe, glacial water, and snow drop give a pure, clean, and cool sensation. Some even have "Temperature Control Technology," and while I don't know exactly what that means, I sure like the sound of that on a 100 degree day.
If you're ready to chill out, here are a handful of cooling primers that your makeup bag needs.
