Makeup Tips for 2022 : Guest Post by Erica Parker of “Jane Iredale Cosmetics”
This month is all about a “New Year, a New Look” at Currie. We can’t think of a better way to start the year than with a Fresh Face enhanced with skin-loving products. This month we’ll be sharing the importance of choosing the right clean beauty products to create your best look yet!
Be on the lookout for our weekly professional beauty tips where our professional makeup artists and aestheticians will be sharing quick and easy tips on how to get your best look yet.
This week we are featuring makeup primers! Makeup primers are the last step in your skincare routine and the first step in your makeup routine. You can think of them like “spackle”. They fill all of our little “cracks and crinkles” to create a smooth, even surface to apply your foundation to. Think of why it is important to prime a wall before you paint it: same concept with makeup! Primers make your foundation go on smoother and last all day. If you feel like your foundation accentuates your wrinkles or makes your pores look larger, the right primer can make all the difference in the world.
Are all primers created equal? The answer is, “No”! Many mainstream primers can contain heavy waxes and other ingredients that negatively affect the healthy look to your skin. Primers can also be skin type specific. For example, there are mattifying primers for people with oily skin and hydrating primers for people with dry skin.
This week we are featuring Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair Primers. We love these primers because they are loaded with clean skin-loving-ingredients and do not contain any potentially harmful ingredients. We also love that they come in 3 different options which allows you to pick the primer perfect for your skin type and for the finish you wish to achieve.
