I’m a big fan of multitasking beauty products (who isn’t?), so I was super psyched last week when celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson introduced me to CoverGirl’s new skin-perfecting primer. The balm, he taught me, can be used in three genius ways:
Under your makeup as a primer. The lightweight formula blurs fine lines and imperfections for a Photoshopped effect. Skin feels silky and makeup stays put.
Over your makeup to control shine. I like to apply it on my lipstick to achieve a velvet-like finish.
Throughout the day for touch-ups. It blends with the makeup you’re already wearing for an instant refresh.
