Any good make up routine starts with a quality primer. Primer is used to smoothen out the skin, so make up glides on looking even and polished. Consider it like prepping the skin to create a canvas for the makeup you'll be putting on your face. Primer fills in the pores, blurs our blemishes, and gives smoothness to the skin. Here are the top picks from The Style Vibe to get you started.
