How to Apply Face Base Primer for Pore Minimiser

To combat these issues and give your skin the boost it needs, you should use a face base primer before applying your foundation or tinted moisturizer. Face base primer works by holding your skin in place for longer, meaning it’s much less likely to wrinkle up during the day. It also fills in wrinkles and pores to give your skin a smoother appearance, making it look younger and more vibrant.

Some also serve additional functions such as hydrating, brightening, etc., depending on their ingredients. When applying pore minimising base primer, make sure that you cleanse your face first. You may apply facial wash or cleanser with warm water or simply use a mild cleanser with your hands without any water at all if you want something quick. Pat dry your face gently with towel so that it can be slightly damp but not overly wet.

Preparation before applying face base primer

Prepare your skin with face wash, toner, essence and ampoule, etc. Step 1. Clean face after facial wash in AM or PM Wash your face with a hydrating cleanser and rinse thoroughly. 2. Tone face with a soothing toner Immediately after cleansing, apply a softening or anti-inflammatory toner all over your face until it's slightly dry.

do not rub in, but allow it to dry naturally. This will help keep your make-up looking new and fresh all day long and reduce signs of aging. Continue with your foundation application on top, using a large brush (e.g. a Buffing Brush). Always apply towards your ears, otherwise you risk streaking or uneven coverage; always follow your cheekbones up towards your hairline, allowing natural light and air in between each pass. Stop just short of your eyebrows (think about when you use hairspray on a hairdryer - do you spray into an open flame? Nope!) or allow them to get slightly damp from misting with water; then quickly apply mascara as normal, before they dry out completely and stick together!
