Makeup artist Nam Vo says, “Primer ups the performance of your foundation and helps it last longer.”

Birchbox Breakdown

This light lotion preps skin for makeup so that it goes on more smoothly and lasts longer. We love that it has SPF (more protection is always a good thing) but doesn't give skin a whitish cast.

How it Works

Beyond just moisturizing (which it does) this primer specifically works to make skin as even as possible: hydrating dry patches, minimizing pores, and smoothing over rough-textured areas. The formula has flower extracts, soothing chamomile, and sun-shielding titanium dioxide.

How to Use

Primer is the very last step before you apply your makeup. If you have oily/combination skin, you can use this primer in place of moisturizer. Smooth a pea-sized amount over your entire face, avoiding eye area. Then, apply foundation, powder, or go bare-faced.
