Ask Melissa: Favorite Primer & Foundations
I’m 55 years young with uneven skin tone, age spots and small veins. Is a primer really necessary? If so, what is the best foundation, liquid or mineral, and which brand would you recommend?
I really like using a primer under my foundation as it smooths out and prepares the skin for make-up application. My favorite primer is by Laura Mercier–it has the perfect consistency and it really fills in lines and wrinkles for smoother skin appearance. I like Sue Devitt’s Triple C-Weed Whipped Foundation for medium to full coverage. It’s oil-free formula has a whipped texture that evens out skin imperfections while locking in moisture at the same time. Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles too. -Melissa
