There are countless reasons to prime your skin before you apply makeup, but Honest Beauty’s Everything Primer makes it a no-brainer thanks to an ingredient list honestly formulated with safe and effective ingredients and noticeably absent of potentially harmful ones. Maybe that’s why this baby snagged a 2015 Allure Best of Beauty Award days after it launched.
What’s inside? Everything Primer is a uniquely custom cocktail of hydrators, glow getters and illuminators (read: a makeup prep, moisturizer and illuminizer in one beautiful step) including:
- Hyaluronic acid and botanical peptides that work together to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of pores.
- A botanically derived firming ingredient, peony root, that plumps the skin’s surface so it appears more youthful.
- Super skin conditioner aloe vera that hydrates skin.
- Orange flower water and mica, a light-reflecting mineral, that together deliver a subtle radiance.
What isn’t added? Parabens, phthalates, paraffins, formaldehyde carriers, PEGs, steareth-n, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, petrolatum, mineral oil and synthetic fragrances.
This beauty earns bonus points for being versatile enough to work both over or under your foundation. No wonder skin loves it!
