Benefits of Makeup Primer

Like an artist primes their canvas before painting it, you should be priming YOUR canvas - your beautiful face. Primer, a gel applied before your makeup, creates a flawless face while providing many other benefits:

Creates a smooth surface: It smooths fine lines and wrinkles by filling them in, also helps fill in facial scarring.

Evens out skin tone: Reduces inflammation and redness

Hydrates and nourishes skin: Trehalose (found in some primers) is a plant sugar with water-binding properties for skin, as well as humectant (moisture preserving) and moisturizing benefits.

Tightens pores: This, along with being a barrier between your skin & makeup, helps keep your pores clean and free of makeup. It also helps prevent your pores from secreting oil, reducing shine.

Makeup lasts longer: This is especially important during harsh winters and humid summers. No matter what time of year, your need to touch up will greatly be reduced!

Makes your makeup POP: This shows the difference of hues without and with primer - 

Younique's Moodstruck Primer is gluten-free, 100% natural, free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and cheap fillers.


  1. Does it work as a lip primer? My lipstick bleeds and I am looking for something that will help. Thanks!

    1. Hi! Yes! This will definitely help. I would also recommend lining the outer edge of your lips, beyond your lip liner, with a BB Cream or cream foundation. that will stop the lipstick from bleeding

  2. Can you use it under the lip stains? Sometimes my stains don't last as long as I would like.
