New You Beauty Tip:  Apply primer to your clean face for makeup that goes on smooth and lasts all day long.

Using a primer under foundation can make a noticeable difference in your appearance. Primers behave the way a moisturizer would by creating a barrier between your skin and your makeup. The added benefit of a primer is its ability to keep makeup in place for hours. Some primers even offer skin saving benefits including dark spot correction, pore minimization and skin tone correction. A primer should also give skin a smooth finish and temporarily fill in fine lines and wrinkles so your foundation glides on smooth and won’t settle in. The promise is younger looking skin that is protected from the sometimes-damaging effects of makeup with only one extra step. Not every primer feels right on the skin, so it is important to shop around. Below find two great options for flawless skin.

Benefit’s Stay Flawless Primer is a great choice at $32 http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/stay-flawless  and Derma Doctor’s Picture Porefect is another favorite at $40 with added skin benefits http://www.dermadoctor.com/conditions/enlarged-pores/picture-porefect-pore-minimizing-solution.html
