Hello everyone, welcome back 🙂
Today I will be doing versus. I decided to do the backlight primer VS first light primer. Now I know both offers different benefits but what one offers better looks or last longer, and makes the makeup looks amazing.
So grab your coffee, pull up a seat and let’s get to it.
Picture of the makeup that I will be using today.
Ok, my eyes are done. For today’s eye look, I used Becca posocco pop and Tarte rainforest of the sea. Under eye, Becca under eye corrector. Now time for primers, I will be using the first light on my right side of myself.
On the Becca website, first light priming filter instant complexion refresh is a skin-awakening primer that instantly erases the signs of a bad face day to leave the complexion fresh, awake and hydrated. A wake up call for the skin, First Light brightens lackluster and dull skin and instantly refreshes the complexion. Skin goes from dull, dry and fatigues to hydrated, healthy and awake.
I love this primer, if you haven’t noticed, I use it pretty much everyday. The primer definitely brightens my skin and hydrated my skin.
For the left side I will be using the backlight primer.
On the Becca website, Backlight priming filter creates a canvas for your makeup, extending its wear from day to night. Backlighting acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that allows your complexion to catch light for a glowing look.
I love this primer for when I want that dewy look .
Here what they look like side by side. Can notice a big difference between the two.
On my right side, I can noticed a brightness to my skins, hydrated, and my laugh lines are diminished.
I found I can see and feel the difference between the two sides already. The first light feels tacky and the backlight feels moisturizer. Also with the backlight, my left side of my face looks dewy, it has this glow to it.
Now to get my face on.
Foundation: Fenty Beauty, shade 160
Concealer: Becca Aqua luminous
Setting powder: BareMinerals invisible light, Marc Jacobs coconut spray
Bronzer and Blush: Quo sunny days and PF butter blush in plum rose
Mascara: L’oreal lash paradise
Lipstick: Tarte homeslice
Finally look. So I will update the rest of day on how each side look.
Around 4 o’clock, both side look a beautiful. Also note the lipstick is still the same, I did not touch up on it either. Love this lipstick, thank you Boxycharm.
Around 7pm, both sides are holding up great.
Last picture before I take off my makeup. Both sides still looks stunning. Both hold the makeup unbelievable well. I can’t decide which primers I love more. I do use the first light more but if I want that dewy, glow look I would use the backlight.
What primer do you use the most?
Talk to you later,
