Sometimes you can have the best foundation and primer but it still does not look good on your skin. There could be a number of reasons for this but here is one important factor you should consider before buying these two products.
❗️Most foundation and primers are either water or silicone based – so it’s important that when you buy these two products, you ensure they are both either silicone or water-based. So if you buy a water based foundation, you need a primer that is also water-based.
🚫 Let me explain why this is important. Water and silicone don’t mix well so using two different formulations is going to cause problems with application and make your foundation to look uneven.
❓I know you’re wondering how on earth you’re supposed to know if a foundation/primer is silicone or water-based. Well – it’s all in the ingredients. Have a look at your foundation/primer and see if you can see the words ‘siloxane’, ‘dimethicone’ or any words ending in ‘cone’ at the top of the list of the ingredients. If the answer is yes – you’re dealing with a silicone based product.
❓However, if these words are nearer to the middle/end of the list of ingredients, you have a water-based product.
💧The first ingredient will always be Aqua so don’t let that fool you into thinking it is a water-based product, as water is needed to make the product liquid.
