One of the main benefits of a primer is its ability to make makeup last longer, and that’s something all of us need during the summers. Primers create a thin layer between your skin and makeup, which prevents factors like sweat and oil from reacting with your makeup, thereby reducing the chances of your makeup melting and oxidising to a great extent.

The increased humidity in the summers can make your pores appear more prominent and prevent your makeup from looking smooth. But applying a primer as the first step in your makeup routine helps in creating an even base. The primer fills in the large pores and fine lines to give you even-looking skin. This ensures that the rest of your makeup goes on a lot smoother and looks absolutely flawless and non-cakey.
