I have to confess that I don't wear a makeup primer with any regularity, and despite the fact that I have normal/combination skin my finishing products tend to stay put without the assistance of a primer. That said, I do see the benefit, and a good primer certainly extends the wear-time of foundations and makeup. In truth, one of the reasons that I tend to skip this step much of the time is that many of the primers on the market are silicone-based, and they feel heavy, impermeable and artificial on the skin.
With this in mind, I was very intrigued by Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray because it is a lightweight spray that is silicone-free. This ultra-fine mist feels and looks like water, and it leaves leaves skin remarkably smooth and soft. There is no question that facilitates super smooth makeup application, and it definitely extends wear-time and retains makeup color vibrancy. Furthermore, this is such featherweight primer that it is absolutely perfect to use during the warm months of the year when lightweight textures are preferable to their heavy counterparts. We have been having a very humid weather pattern lately in Los Angeles, and Skindinavia has been my primer of choice because of its ability to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions, and it does so effortlessly!
