Foundation can make your face feel dry, especially in cold weather and low humidity conditions. This also affects the condition of the makeup in general as the foundation looks uneven, dry, and can start to peel off

However, there is a trick that will help solve this problem completely. OBOZ.UA reveals the professional secrets of makeup artists.

What is a primer

A primer is a makeup product that does not contain pigments, but it often contains high-quality moisturizing ingredients. The product smoothes the skin, fills in unevenness, and helps to balance its oiliness. Thus, it has all the qualities needed to solve the problem of dry skin tone even if you have combination skin and have too much oil in the T-zone.

How to use it

This product is usually applied under foundation. It allows the foundation to go on as smoothly as possible and makes it more long-lasting. However, you can also add a drop of the product directly to your foundation. This mixing helps to correct the problem of dryness even if it is caused by extreme weather conditions.

So, use the primer before applying the foundation, and then mix a drop of the product with the foundation and apply it to the skin. What's more, you can use a primer instead of a highlighter, especially if your product has a light shimmer.

In general, lightening primers are best suited for this method because they are usually smooth in texture, blend well, and interact perfectly with the tone. Makeup artists advise applying the product with a flat kabuki brush, but you can do it with your fingers.
