What is primer spray for makeup?
Priming spray instantly balances and reinvigorates your skin before you apply makeup — it gives you a boost of hydration and moisturizes the skin, getting rid of any dry patches. This makes it easier for foundation and other products to go on smoothly and evenly. We love our Quick Fix Complexion Prep Priming Spray since it contains nourishing ingredients like coconut water and vitamin B3.
What does priming spray do?
Priming spray reduces the appearance of pores, brightens and smooths, and adds moisture to the skin. Quick Fix Complexion Prep Priming Spray contains nourishing coconut water and vitamin B3 to give your skin a hit of hydration while balancing your complexion before you apply makeup. It's the perfect spray for waking up your skin and even refreshing it throughout the day.
Can setting spray be used as a primer?
Yes, it can. But if you want more nourishing ingredients, we recommend using our Quick Fix Complexion Prep Priming Spray. Quick Fix contains hydrating, good-for-your-skin coconut water and vitamin B3. It'll instantly moisturize your skin, reduce the appearance of pores, and balance your complexion before you apply makeup.
Does primer actually work?
Yes, it does! Primer helps create a smooth canvas on the skin for even makeup application; it helps grip the product and makes it last longer, too. We recommend always using our All Nighter Face Primer before applying any makeup — it's a clear vegan gel that goes on weightlessly to hydrate and smooth skin. It boosts the staying power of your foundation for up to 8 hours, so it's not going anywhere. You can even wear it solo for skin that looks slightly lifted!
What can I use instead of primer?
You can use a light water-based moisturizer in place of a primer, but it may not grip product as well. All Nighter Face Primer is your best bet; this vegan gel glides on weightlessly to hydrate and smooth your skin, while boosting the staying power of your foundation for up to 8 hours. It seriously can't be beat.
How long do you leave primer on before foundation?
There’s no need to wait with Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer — you can apply foundation right after you get your primer on. Our vegan formula* primer grips foundation and boosts its staying power for up to 8 hours, so you're all set to go.
