There are several options for makeup primer and remover among black owned makeup brands as described below. This is an update from a previous post about makeup primer and remover to provide additional information about their uses, and new products.
Makeup primer and remover are considered essential elements of a beauty regiment. Makeup primer is applied after moisturizer and before makeup. The use of a makeup primer serves several purposes. These include serving as a protective shield between the skin and makeup, reducing the appearance of oil or shine, and increasing the longevity of your makeup application. Makeup primer also smooths the surface of the skin and helps to conceal blemishes and fine lines. There are various types of primers that can be applied underneath foundation, eye shadow, and lipstick. It is important to consider your skin type (e.g., oily versus dry) in choosing a makeup primer.6
Removing makeup at the end of the day is also important. Skin cells rejuvenate while sleeping and makeup can clog the pores and impede cell rejuvenation. The failure to remove makeup can also irritate and damage the skin. There are different types of makeup removers that serve different purposes. These include products for the face, lips and eyes, as well as oil-based removers, and portable wipes. Again, you should consider your skin type in selecting a makeup remover.4 I encourage you to review products on company websites to identify those that work for you.
