The Primers For An Extra Boost of Radiance

Let me start by saying I’m not a primer girl. I don’t see primer as a necessary step in creating a natural, long lasting makeup look. Doesn’t matter if it’s drugstore or high-end, such as the widely acclaimed hourglass mineral veil primer, I never get along with it – I don’t like the feeling of them sitting on my face, and not making material difference, you know what I mean?
