Youtube Video: Let's Talk Primers

Finding a good foundation primer is an important part of your beauty routine. Primers serve the exact purpose their name implies. They function as a base, giving your foundation something to stick to, allowing you to have a more polished, even, flawless finish, while also giving your makeup more staying power. In this video, I give you some insight into some of the primers I've tested out in my search for my favorites. Some from the high-end brands, others more affordable, drugstore varieties (yes, you can find a decent affordable foundation primer).

I'm personally a fan of Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer, a cult classic ($36), but most recently, I've fallen head over heels for Victoria's Secret VS Pro Airbrush FX Face Primer SPF 20 ($14). As for the affordable brands, I'm definitely a strong proponent for e.l.f'.'s Mineral Face Primer ($6), the absolute closest and most affordable dupe to Smashbox and Sephora's brand name primer I've found so far.

Check out my video below for reviews on these and other primers I've loved, hated, and just thought were so-so.
