I've never used a makeup primer before. Do you notice a big difference when you use one, and which do you recommend?
[QUOTE=caliente;2804287]try using a makeup primer before foundation.[/QUOTE]

I do use a primer occasionally but only on my cheeks to help make my pores less visible.
I will try using it all over my face, so hopefully that will help. Thanks for the suggestion.

I do have another question though, will using a primer cause clogged pores? So far I haven't had a problem with it, but my pores do get clogged and dirty very easily, so hopefully that won't be a problem.
[QUOTE=MoonLight0;2805282]That is also I have another issue with - when the powder sinks into smile or eye lines and exaggerates/creates them. I don't naturally have lines on my face since I'm young, but the powder actually creates them since it dries out my skin so much. It's so irritating.
I'll try using a moisturizer before retouching makeup so hopefully that will help.

I know what you mean about the mascaras. I also get those flakes and it just doesn't look as good (even though I usually use waterproof).
It must be this weather or something.[/QUOTE]


I'm also young so I think it's my makeup causing those little lines. Under my eyes there have always been tiny lines but I feel like they are becoming less noticeable. I'm 20 years old so I sure hope I don't have to deal with wrinkle issues!

I also use a makeup primer, Benefit's Dr. Feel Good and it keeps skin from getting oily and does not clog pores. It does help but I feel like I need something more!
actually, i'm on a tight budget so i use Monistat Anti-Chafing relief gel as a makeup primer. it makes a huge difference. it keeps my face matte and my makeup goes on so much smoother and more even. it stays smooth and fresh all day. it has the same ingredients as most makeup primers and costs a lot less. i have very sensitive, acne-prone skin and this gel does not break me out at all.

it has many other uses too. i put it on my bikini area to help prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs, and i put it on my toes when i wear shoes that rub and cause blisters.

Yea, I know what you mean. I'm gonna finish using this makeup and than I'll have to look for something different that doesn't look so caked on and won't dry out my face.
The primer does work surpisingly. I used it last night on my face before going out, and my makeup looked a lot better.

That's what I use as well. It's cheap and according to people who use it, it works exactly the same as a true makeup primer.
I heard from a couple of people that it does clog pores because or the silicone or something, but so far I haven't had a problem with it so I'm gonna keep using it.
