When we dove into our makeup drawer for a little organizing this past weekend, something dawned on us… Over the last few months, we’ve amassed quite a little primer collection. Once upon a time, we reserved this pre-makeup product for big nights out, but as time has marched on, we’ve come to rely on a variety of formulas geared toward specific issues. When we’re broken out, Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control helps camouflage blemishes and speed healing. When we’re feeling particularly dull, Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer helps us get our glow on. And now, when our skin is seeing red, we turn to Pixi Redness Reducing Primer.
Don’t be alarmed when you squeeze some out in your hand and it’s green. That’s called color correction, and this particular hue works to neutralize redness. Aside from the visual quick fix, this lightweight primer also contains ingredients like soothing aloe vera and antioxidant vitamins A and E to protect skin from further aggravation. It leaves a smooth, air-brushed finish that helps your foundation last—if you even need it at all. If the weather changes we’re all experiencing right now have left your skin on the rosy side, this is just the product you need to get your skin back on track.
