Primer acts as a barrier between your skin and makeup. From brightening and mattifying your skin to blurring out skin imperfections and increasing the longevity of your makeup, primer is that multi-functional beauty product your vanity kit needs at any cost.

You can also beat oily skin woes by applying a primer under your foundation and you’ll never complain of makeup meltdowns again. While the main purpose of a primer is to keep your makeup from sliding off your face easily; you’ll be surprised to know that there are many unconventional uses of this product.

Here’s everything you didn’t know your primer could do...

Fix makeup mishaps

Mastering that cat eye is no easy feat; one wrong move can ruin your entire eye makeup. Ideally, makeup remover is the common solution. But, what if we told you that you can put your primer to use in such situations? This way you don’t have to bother about taking off any makeup by mistake either.

Similarly, to fix any eye shadow fallout, you can simply apply primer onto a brush and dab on areas where you see any fallout. It will pick up all of the excess eye shadow without moving the rest of your makeup.

Flaunting long lashes can be a struggle! To make your lashes look longer and voluminous, apply a little bit of primer on your lashes before you go in with your mascara. With the help of a spoolie, apply primer on your lashes from root to tip. And then layer it with your favourite mascara. Doing so will make your lashes look longer and fuller instantly!

Neaten your brows

Unruly, bushy brows need a lot of setting to look neat and to stay in place. Did you know that a primer can work just like an eyebrow gel to help you tame your brows? Take just a bit of primer and with the help of a spoolie, brush it through your brows.

Stop lipstick from bleeding

Don’t let anything come in the way of your love for bold lipsticks! Does that favourite red lippie start bleeding from the edges of your lips? Well, your primer can stop your lipstick from bleeding. Just apply some primer on a thin lip brush and run the brush along the edges of your lips before applying lipstick.

Tame baby hair

Baby hair can be extremely annoying, especially when it comes to styling. While hairsprays are your best bet to tame baby hair; if you ever find yourself in a sticky situation and without hairspray, then simply take some primer on your palm, rub it between your palms and smoothen your baby hair by running your hands through your baby hair.
