What Are Makeup Bases?
Basically, makeup bases are primers that are meant to be used before foundations. Their function is to even out the texture of the skin, correct skin tone irregularities, enhance the durability of foundation and minimize your pores.
Makeup bases can come in many different colors. You should pick a makeup base depending on your skin type and concern.
Green – to counteract redness, good for acne-prone skin.
Purple – to counteract sallowness.
Blue – to enhance translucence.
Pink – to brighten up your complexion, great for those with pale skin.
White – to highlight, should be used on the bridge of your nose, on the cheekbones, forehead and chin.
