Priming is Key

A primer is key to achieving flawless makeup and these products are essential. 

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
No introduction needed am I right?!  Definitely a fave on Queen Ashley as it's wonderful.  It's my go to for priming and I make sure to apply it every single time I wear makeup.   It blurs out imperfections instantly, helps a full face last all day and is affordable AF.  A little goes a long way too.  I freaking love Maybelline

Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer
I must admit, I haven't used this in ages.  But when I do it makes a huge difference.  The formula is really liquid-y and sets clear.  It feels lightweight on the skin and allows foundation to have a more natural dewy finish.  A must for me since my very dry skin can easily make makeup look cakey and overdone. 

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
The hype is so real you guys.  I haven't been able to put this down since babe picked it up for Xmas.  Literally obsessed.  You can use it for basically anything but  lately I love using it to blend my foundation.  I'll just apply whatever foundation I'm using for the day with a kabuki brush.  Then I'll  dampen my beauty blender just a bit with the Primer Water and blend some more.  I find this technique really takes care of any excess foundation and cakey-ness. You can even apply it first to the skin as a base.  Love it.  I already need a backup. Hint, hint.  My birthday is coming up haha. 

MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage
Newest to my stash and my first time trying it out.  It has tiny flecks of pink glitter that's supposed to help counteract discoloration and/or hyper pigmentation.   I've used it a few times already and so far I love it.  I'm not sure how well it counteracts discoloration/hyper pigmentation but I love the gorgeous glow it gives.  I love it so much I think I'll be needing a full size now.  Of course. 

What are some of your favorite products to prime with?  I can't believe we're down to the last couple months of January.  I must say though, I'm super excited.  Aquarius season stand up lol lol!!!!  Byeeee.
