As a team of Pro Makeup Artists, Team Image’s secret weapon to competition day and the perfect everyday makeover perfection is primer!
Primer acts as the glue to hold your concealer, foundation and eye shadow all day long! Primer also give that flawless, streak-free look we all strive to create even for our daily makeup routine. You may be asking why primer? It’s just another expense, not really a necessity. Let us explain why and at the end of this, primer will become a necessity for you!
You can get primers anywhere but as makeup artist’s we’ve spent years building our kits and are a bit biased in regards to what we use… The silicon face primer we use is by BeautiControl and is clear and acts like a photo finisher. It acts a glue to adhere and prime the face to properly accept the foundation as each crevasse of the face is smoothed and covered. Same for cc cremes (eye shadow primers) they also have the same properties but a bit thinner formula and are safe for the eyes. We use BeautiControl Control Creme which comes in three colors, natural is perfect for most skin types, taupe for darker skin and pink for fair skin with pink undertones.
If you’ve ever wondered why models have such glowing, flawless skin, the answer is in their makeup primer or they were airbrushed, but that’s an entirely different conversation 😉 Our silicon primers and cc cremes have the unique ability to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and using primer as a layer between your skin and foundation provides the base necessary to create the appearance of perfect skin at any age.
How to apply: Our favorite way is by hand, because you get a flawless and streak free finish that you can’t get with a brush or a sponge. If you are more comfortable using a brush or sponge, we recommend you use less product and add more as needed. The following photos give an idea of what fully blended primer looks like (this is with finished concealer as well)

We hope you enjoyed our thoughts. Have fun “primer-ing” it up and we are here to answer any questions you may have!
