A makeup addict would never say that a MAKEUP PRIMER isn’t required. In facts the rule book says it’s a crime not to prime!
Just before I take this post further, let me take a minute and explain you the whats and whys of this product, just in case you are new to this colorful world and are still exploring!!..
WHAT is a makeup primer? WHY do we need it?
Applying primer is the very first step in makeup application. It serves various purposes
- Minimizes the pores and gives a smother surface for the foundation or powder to glide on easily
- Your makeup base looks smoother and more natural
- The makeup lasts longer
- Reduces redness
- Softens and smoothens the skin
The market of-course has a wide variety of mid-high end primers available but I am here to introduce you to the cheapest, best and easily available primer which is “The Nivea Men After Shave Balm”!
Yes! That’s right we women have managed to invade in our husband’s grooming territory as well! 😀
Okay, coming back to the subject! Using the Nivea after shave balm, as the primer has been floating on the internet since quite a long time now but, I don’t know why I never took it very seriously…. In spite of the product lying right there on my bathroom counter… It just didn’t strike me or rather didn’t attract me enough to give it a try (only glittery things attract me, remember!..).
It was only last week when I gave it a shot and I was so amazed by the results! The balm did make my makeup routine much happier!
How to apply?
On a clean dry face, just before applying makeup, apply a small amount of “The Nivea Men After Shave Balm”, just like you would apply your regular moisturizer.
Wait for about 2-3 minutes before you proceed on to your makeup routine. You will love LoVe LOVE the result! I guarantee 😀 and if not, you can always wrap it, decorate it, and gift it to the man of the house 😀 In both ways it’s a great buy.
EVERYWHERE! Any general store will have it, just in case you want it online, you can buy it online from NYKAA
Rs. 225/- (but available at a discounted price of Rs. 212/ at NYKAA)
I am very sure no makeup primer would be that cheap and give amazing results! You ought to give it a try and let me know your opinion.
