When it comes to makeup, staying power is key. Priming will not only keep your products in place, but it will also smooth your skin by minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. Needless to say, add this step to your makeup routine!

Here are a few our tried and true favorite primers of all time. Whether high end or drugstore, these all do their job!

Eyes:  These primers are sure to keep your eye makeup exactly where you want it and crease free until you remove it!

**YBB Trick: If you don’t have a shadow primer, use a small amount of your concealer on your eyelids before applying your eye makeup. Not only will this act as a primer, it also has color correcting effects to even the skintone on your lids.

Lips:  Don’t let your favorite lip color fade or dry out after you apply it. Prep your lips with one of our favorite primers to keep your color vibrant all night long.
