When I know I will have a long day ahead of me, I like taking the extra step of applying a face primer since it makes my makeup hold up better throughout the day. Although I have tried quite a few primers, there are only a couple I have noticed actually make a difference, one of them being Benefit's Porefessional. So when I got to try Make Up For Ever's HD Microperfecting Primer* in the shade #1 Green, I had really high hopes that it would become a new favourite.
What I like about this line is that it comes in 7 shades that target specific skin issues and are designed to enhance your skin tone. I chose the green shade since it is formulated to reduce redness and targets women with rosacea. I have acne-prone skin meaning I have a lot of redness and since green counteracts red, it helps mask a lot of my imperfections. When I first apply this primer, it leaves a green cast on my face, and it is only when I apply my foundation and concealer on top that the green is cancelled out and I am left with a neutral skin tone.
If you'd be interested in giving one of the Make Up For Ever HD primers a try, they retail for $39 in Canada and can be purchased at Sephora and Make Up For Ever Boutiques, or online at Sephora.ca.
