The beauty equivalent of a classic LBD

Steadily keeping up with my beauty product addiction, I wanted to do a quick post and share this primer that I picked up last week from Sephora because I wish I had known about it sooner myself. I’m always interested in tips and tricks that will help me achieve a flawless finish and I think applying primer before foundation is a must! For the past year, I have been using MakeUp ForEver HD Microperfecting Primer, which is excellent and achieves a natural even look. When I was at Sephora, I came across the Veil Mineral Primer from Hourglass and was told by one of the beauty consultants I should definitely give a try. Considering the fact that I have sensitive skin, I was hesitant at first but I was very pleased with the results and it instantly became my new favorite primer! 

A primer is a serum like substance that is used before foundation as a base to make applying smoother and to last longer. I call this primer the beauty equivalent of a classic LBD because it keeps your makeup in place for hours and hours! It can be found at Sephora and comes in 2 sizes, 0.33 oz and 1.00 oz. Although it is a bit pricey, one pump is sufficient enough to cover the entire face and leaves you with a smooth satiny canvas. While Veil is not a brand new product, it is new to me. It not only softens the appearance of fine lines and pores, it absorbs excess oil allowing your makeup to stay from morning to night. I will definitely be using this everyday.

Have you tried this primer before? Thoughts?
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
