What’s the difference between a primer and a liquid/cream/mousse foundation? A primer which is also called a “makeup base” is used/applied after your daily moisturiser to set and hold your powder foundation for hours concealing your bare look. How it works by concealing your flaws? See pics below (btw pics below are all taken from the net >.<)
Let’s start off with the hands, as you can see on the left with primer/makeup base, it brightens and evens out your skin tone.
Now let’s go on to the face, on the right with primer/makeup base not only it brightens and evens out your skin tone, it makes you look more refresh/awake and fairer too! Also note that it has lesser coverage compared to liquid/cream/mousse foundations. It works very well for people with dry skin.
What flaws does primer/makeup base help to hide? It evens out skin tone hiding your dull bare complexion, covers minor redness at the sides of your nose or mouth, minimizes blemishes and pores(make blemishes and pores look less noticeable) which explains that flawless natural looking complexion.
In many cases, people are always fooled by a person’s skin condition as good and blessed with natural beauty after applying primer/makeup base.
Next is liquid/cream/mousse foundation, amazing right? It conceals all the flaws on your face without using a concealer! Okay, to those who are confused let me explain a little more. A concealer is another makeup tool that is commonly used for concealing your dark eye rings, eye bags or any redness on your face. Often this concealer tool is used if one wants her makeup to look light and natural. But with liquid/cream/mousse foundation, you can skip the concealer part as it can conceal every flaws on your face without much hassle. This liquid/cream/mousse foundation works very well on dry skin too.
What flaws does liquid/cream/mousse foundation help to hide? It evens out skin tone hiding your dull bare complexion, covers redness at the sides of your nose or mouth, hides blemishes and conceal pores(prevent pores from being known or noticed) which explains that flawless smooth complexion.
Thick makeups which are contributed by liquid/cream/mousse foundation are essential for people with very bad skin conditions like severe dark eye rings, severe eyebags, severe blemishes, very dull skin tone, acne prone skin, large pores and are not blessed with good looks. See this video below.
As you can see dry skin has more benefits to makeup than oily skin, but people with dry skins wrinkle faster and will form more wrinkles compared to people with oily skins as they age.
Yup, so this is all that I can think of for now and if anyone who disagree with me can feel free to correct me. =)
