Best Face Primer For Over 50


The Best Face Primer For Over 50 For 2020

1. Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray

This setting spray is wonderful! It makes your makeup last and last. It helps “melt” all of the powder if you love baking and piling on the setting powder. I won’t use anything else! Been using this for years – keeps makeup in place. Does not bother my skin. This is what actual purchasers had to say about this primer spray.

2. Bodyography Foundation Primer (Green)

I really love the way this goes on….it is very sheer. I apply it after I’ve let my daily moisturizer soak in a couple of minutes, and before I apply my foundation. I use much less foundation, as the “veil” allows for an easy, smooth application of my foundation. I put it over my moisturizer, or wear it as a moisturizer. Amazing smoothness to receive flawless foundation. I do mix brands and found that Bodyography received my Merle Norman liquid foundation great. I am in my early sixities and do not have problem skin, other than my skin is a little dryer as I get older and in winter. After I use my Clarisonic Mia to cleanse and follow with toner, moisturizer and this product, it is amazing how soft and tender my face is to receive concealer and foundation. I have not had any skin reaction to product.

4. Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

This is a beautiful product and makes my make up look so smooth. I am 66 and have wrinkles and this product, makes my face feel smooth and very soft to the touch. My skin is on the oily side which is why I tried this primer. It makes my skin so matte and, being in Florida, I’m thrilled it has SPF in it.
So. If you have oily skin and you feel like giving up on finding a primer for your skin type, please try one more time and get this.

5. Bella Terra Cosmetics Mineral Makeup Primer

This primer is thick and smooth. I apply it first then my eyeshadow and it stays on all day. You must work quick once you apply to the lid. Blending and placing it fast is the key to this eye primer. I am particularly fond of the fact that it is mineral based so less chemicals on my skin. This is a really nice primer, covers nicely and takes just a dab! Long lasting and good coverage. For the price u cant beat it. So smooth to go on. And stays all day.

Hi we often get asked what’s the quickest and easiest way to look fabulous with makeup and for someone over 50, and I would say the best thing that you can do is to apply primer at your skin so that anything that you put on top stays put for longer and looks better so let’s start with the first primer which is the the face primer.  You just need one squirt like that so that’s enough about the size of the garden pee and you put it on over your moisturizer and either underneath your base of your foundational or mixed with it . The effective of  it is to smooth your skin filling and any fine lines that are open pools that you got and then it makes your basic foundation last until well into the evening.

I  don’t have to touch my face makeup during the day it is actually not necessary because I do use the primer . So a second primer is the is the eye primer ,  it comes with a sponge applicator and on the back of your hand put the amount that you need very little about so much is enough and then if you use a brush just to smooth it if you imagine your eyelid ,  just smooth it in like that allow to dry it just  it neutralizes any discoloration on your eye lids and again you can see with your eye makeup if you got shadows on , they have not creased and they will stay put and again until I take them off tonight before I go to bed and next and our final prime is our lip prime, what this is this is how it looks but this is applied on the outside of your lips you put it on with the application just rub it gently and with your fingers your little finger and then it will seal the edges of your lips so you don’t get that feathering and bleeding at the color into the outside edges brilliant for that so I hope that was helpful and I hope that has shown you just how important those three primes , face eyes lips are to successfully making up your face and getting a really brilliant finished affect thanks for reading bye.
