Choosing The Right Primer-Our Picks for 2018

Hey there!  Megan from Makeup In The 702 here and as promised this week I have my must have primers for your makeup case.  Before I dig into my picks you might be wondering what primer is and how it works. 

Primer is the base for your foundation that comes in a variety of formulas including cream, gel and powder that helps your makeup go on smoother and last longer by smoothing those fine lines, wrinkles and large pores creating a smooth and even canvass for a fantastic photo finish.  It’s one of those products that serves double duty as both a cosmetic and a skin care product.

So, without further ado here are my picks to get you started…

Up 1st we are loving this new kid on the block SMASHBOX RADIANCE PRIMER, a satin cream primer that gives you that radiant golden hour glow that photographers love…. It’s also perfect for those days that you may not feel like wearing much makeup (we all have them) but still want that healthy glow. 



Next NARS a Shiseido-owned product scores big marks!  I absolutely LOVE the added benefit of sunscreen in this product.  Living in the Las Vegas desert sunscreen is an everyday part of life.  The SMOOTH & PROTECT formula has an spf of 50 and the RAIDANCE PRIMER has an spf of 35.  Both formulas give your skin that amazing healthy over glow reviving dull and fatigued skin.





We are so lucky to have a NARS Pro store at the Forum Shops here in Las Vegas! 

Now!  This was my pick for the Royal Wedding and Meghan Markle… THE SILK CANVASS, Filter Finish Protective Primer from TATCHA, a velvety priming balm of pressed silk.  Another newcomer that is making a name for itself very quickly… it’s a game changer!   Who doesn’t adore the feeling of silk on their skin and that is what this product delivers it leave a beautiful lit from within glow to the skin and immediately diminishes pore and fine lines for a soft luxurious finish.  As with the others this product doubles duty as well as a perfect lip primer.

So there you have it!  Our picks for your kit for 2018!  Join me again next week, I’ll be talking about sunscreen and sharing some tips to help you choose the right one.  Until then visit us on Instagram for incredible wedding makeup inspiration!
