@BeckyS0:  I’ve been into the depth of YouTube. I am both on the verge of buying all cosmetics from every CVS and MAC and about to start making my own videos. But this was great for me because I know little about makeup so it was a mini research project.

I noticed three things when it came to primers. First, a lot of women use primer for their face and another primer for their eyelids and under eye area. The second thing I noticed is that the vast majority of women use liquid primer followed by liquid foundation. The last thing I noticed is there is a camp for and against silicon for people with oily skin. So you’d have to research and see which you think is better for you. I guess silicon does last longer but can sometimes feel heavy depending on the product.

Because it’s hard for you to find places at a brick-and-mortar store, I’d suggest websites like sephora.comrickysnyc.com, or even macys.com to purchase some of the harder to find items.

Now for the videos….I see that someone has unveiled the Monistat secret, hehe. I’ve also found the MILK OF MAGNESIA SECRET!!! I have no idea of how well it works but the young woman looks beautiful and says she does it a lot when going out dancing which is kinda the same as the summer, right? Annnnd you can easily find this anywhere! > Youtube Link

Here’s a young woman who uses a traditional primer, liquid foundation, and a setting spray…with some other things inbetween > YouTube Link

This young lady reviews primers (no demos) but she has oily skin and is pretty thorough about what has worked for her skin and what hasn’t. > YouTube Link

This young woman also has oily skin (no demo) and shows a few primers. She uses foundation too but she sets with powder. > YouTube Link

Also blotting papers!! Everyone swears by them. I can’t tell what makes it standout against toilet tissue, but yeah. Listen to the YouTube pros, not me. Wink

@BeckyS0:  BB creams (which have been on the market in other countries than the US for a really long time) are just another base to consider. It’s like a primer and moisturizer in one that contains some great anti-aging and protective elements in it. Sometimes they have SPF in them, too. They create a very smooth finish and base, then you can apply your make-up. The ones that do this have silicone or dimethicone in them.

I have tried Olay’s CC cream (their version of a BB cream) and it’s okay. I will finish my tube but wouldn’t buy it again. I just didn’t see a huge difference when I used it, when compared with other Olay products I’ve used. It also didn’t make a very good primer to me.

But on Sunday, I discovered the BB cream by The Body Shop! As I put on a sample without a mirror, I asked Fiance if it did anything for my face. He smiled and said it made a difference he could see. I was a bit skeptical because I was thinking maybe he was being nice ๐Ÿ™‚ but nope…he spoke truth! It gave my skin this really great finish. It was smoothed out with a nice glow…just looked awesome.

@BeckyS0:  What’s weird is that my acne-prone places (cheeks) are the drier areas on my face. wtf is up with that? My new skincare regimen is a non-foaming cleanser 2x a day, massaged into wet skin and then removed with a wet washcloth (to exfoliate gently). It’s definitely made a huge difference in my skin.

Your tinted moisturizer contains several no-no ingredients. :

I recently started using the Elf primer, because of another drugstore make up thread on here, and it does the job.
