But everyone in the entire world seems to love it. And everyone in the whole world can hardly be wrong, can they?
Anyway, I have since tried some primers, and they do actually do things, which is exciting. You can basically get one tailored to any of your face requirements, whether you want moisture, glow, smoothness, or longevity.
But using primers as primers is one thing — how about using weird things as primers? I found some unusual and cheap options on the www and tried them out for your pleasure.
NikkieTutorials started this, and it has since blown up. I must say, I enjoy the image of thousands of blokes trying to get their usual moisturiser, only to find hoards of teenage girls circling the stand.
It’s super cheap and a thin, milky consistency. It smells like men, which I actually enjoy, but if you don’t, don’t worry: it doesn’t last long. Using a small amount (pea-sized, shall we say) rub it in like moisturiser. It will eventually start to become sticky, at which point you’re ready to apply base. (Post continues after gallery.)
