Vegan primer has many natural benefits for our skin and plays an important part in any vegan makeup routine. Vegan primer is an essential step in creating the perfect base, combatting shine, and ensuring whatever you put on top, stays in place.
Despite this fact, many people skip vegan primer because they don’t think they need it or they aren’t sure how to use it. Others think that vegan primer isn’t worth the investment but using a vegan primer under your makeup will make all of it last longer be it on your skin or in your makeup bag.
Vegan primers usually in a gel or cream format but sometimes they come in a powder form as well. Vegan primers work by softening the skin and creating a sort of layer that prepares your face for tinted moisturiser or natural foundation. They are also great for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and disguising large pores which is handy for those of us who are a little more mature! Vegan primer is also great for eyelids and can prevent creasing of vegan eyeshadow, or smudged vegan eyeliner. You can even use vegan primer on its own with no natural foundation or eco concealer to give your fresh-faced look a bit of extra polish!
The best way to apply vegan primer is with your fingers, especially if you are applying it to your whole face. When you apply vegan primer, be sure to massage the face in circular motions to ensure an even spread and to get the blood flowing underneath the surface.
Many commercial vegan primers use silicone based polymers such as dimethicone as they create an ultra-smooth effect. Unfortunately, these can also lead to acne flare ups, blocked pores, and irritation which is far from the desired effect.
