Foundation Primer, a Gift for Makeup Wearers

If I asked you what wishes you want for your makeup, you might say for it to stay on longer, look smoother, have improved condition, and perhaps even appear tightened.  Primers do all those things and more.  They take very little time to apply, but give so many benefits. 

Most of Merle Norman skin primers can be used on any skin type.  However, each offers specific benefits.  The basic skin primer smooths, provides optical diffusers to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and pore size, evens skin tone, and enhances truer foundation color. 

Foundation Plus Primer offers the only primer with SPF.  If your foundation or moisturizer already has an SPF, the extra SPF does not provide an additional benefit.  However, this particular primer is known for its silky feel.  It extends wear and fills in lines and wrinkles, provides anti-aging ingredients such as vitamins A,C, and E, plus green tea, as well as a firming agent.

Oil-free, Anti-blemish Foundation Primer contains 2% salicylic acid which helps unclog pores. The primer absorbs excess natural skin oils as well.  Anti-redness Foundation neutralizes the red while smoothing rough patches.

Allure Magazine chose Merle Norman’s 24K Gold Firming Foundation Primer as one of the “Best” cosmetic products in 2017. It is a serum- like product that provides a natural radiance as well as a tensor effect that lifts, firms and smooths. 

No matter what primer you choose, you’ll find that your foundation stays on longer, while giving you a smoother, flawless look.
