NO! That’s what I told myself for a while anyway. My far-too-kind-voice-of-reason was telling me: “You have the beautiful glowing skin, a primer will only clog your pores and make you feel like you are wearing a cake on your face!”

Well turns out, my voice of reason was wrong.

On most days, some spot concealer and powder foundation (I use bareMinerals) just about do the trick, but on days when my skin needs a little extra TLC, I’ve been reaching for Sunday Riley’s Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer. It is super light weight, leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and it is paraben free. Either by itself (bonus!) or as a base under my foundation, it’s become one of my new go-to products. What about you? Do you use a primer?
