Primer is basically the “one and only” product which can help your makeup last long, and trust me it is a wonder product for oily and combination skinned beauties.

What does a primer do?

How to Apply Primer
It basically prepares your face for applying makeup. It is something which helps the makeup to cling up making the skin smoother and even.  It helps the base makeup or makeup in general from smearing, fading or creasing.
• Smoothens the skin.
• Evens it out.
• Provides flawless base for makeup.
• Hides skin imperfections.

Who should use a primer?
There is no hard and fast rule that only oilies or women with a combination skin type should use a it. Even women with a dry skin type can use a primer for making their makeup stay on longer. Women with sensitive and acne prone skin can also use a primer since it evens it out and reduces inflammation.
