Product of the Day- Primers

Today's POTD are two different primers that I use on a daily basis for 
prolonging my foundation and eye shadows. 

I have had friends ask me before (especially that have oily skin) how to get their 
make-up to last all day without running off and my answer is very simple. 
PRIMERS. 

There are many different primers on the market and you can spend a lot or you can
find some really affordable options at your local drugstore. I personally have opted
for the cheaper route b/c I feel like while it's a very important product it's not something
you actually see. 

My current foundation and shadow primers are:


On left is my foundation primer by Rimmel, Fix & Perfect. As you can see it claims to 
smooth skin and minimize pores. I can't say that I really tell a big difference in my pores, but
it does help my foundation last all day. This product actually comes out an orange color, but no
need to fret b/c it blends in to your skin without any color. It does have a different smell that I'm 
not sure how to describe. I personally like it a lot. It's not something that lingers or you will 
smell throughout the day, but when first applied you do smell. Retails at drugstores 
for around $5.

The primer on the right is for my eyeshadows and it's by NYX (sold at Ulta). It's 
packaged much like a mascara so the applicator comes out in a wand form. This is a nude
color that blends in to your skin. This makes such a difference in getting your shadows to last
all day without creasing, running, or fading! This retails at Ulta for around $5. 

These both are great products that will remain apart of my routine. I will never go back to not
using a foundation or shadow primer. Once you see the pay off of a lasting look it's a quick step you
will enjoy adding to your routine. 

What are your favorite primers?

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
