Penny Pinch Beauty Tips-Face Primers

Makeup primer is a wonderful prep product before applying your foundation. Most primers such as Smashbox Photo Finish Primer ($36.00), create a smooth surface for it to glide onto. Below are great alternatives to top of the line makeup primers for the Penny Pinch Beauty Gal.
  • The Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel is said to have similar ingredients as Smashbox Photo Finish, a top makeup primer product. Use the Monistat Chafing Gel just as you would a makeup primer. Smashbox Photo Finish claims to reduce the appearance of pores, smooth fine lines, fill imperfections and create a clean canvas for makeup. Users of the Monistat Soothing Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel say that it does the same.

     Can be found at most drug stores, Wal-Mart, Target or at Amazon Retail $5.00 approx.

Dermalogica Barrier Repair

  • Dermalogica Barrier Repair can be used as an alternative to makeup primer as well. You can use Barrier Repair as a waterless moisturizer as well as a makeup primer. A popular ingredient in makeup primers, silicone, is also in the Dermalogica Barrier Repair. Use the Barrier Repair on a clean, dry face before applying makeup
