Multi Priming: How to use Primer for Combination Skin

In one of our last blog articles, we explained everything about face primer and showed you how to apply it correctly. We also introduced you to our two new Digital Complexion Primers - one for dry skin and one for oily skin. Now we'll dive deeper into the topic and introduce you to an often-underestimated face priming technique called multi priming.

Find the best primer match for combination skin

The great advantage of using face primer is that you can:

  • Fill in wrinkles and pores, making your skin texture and make-up look more even
  • Diminish oily skin and moisturize
    dry areas, which in turn prolongs the durability of your foundation
  • Conceal acne, rosacea, or redness

But now comes the question of all questions: How do you apply primer if you have neither dry nor oily skin, but combination skin? That means some areas, such as the T-zone, tend to get oily quickly, while your cheeks tend to be dry. The answer is multi priming.

Multi priming doesn't mean you mix two primers together. Instead, with this simple technique, you apply the appropriate base to skin areas that need a specific primer. For example, Digital Complexion Primer for dry skin on dry areas and Digital Complexion Primer for oily skin on oily areas.

The number of primers you need for an optimal result is not limited. For example, in addition to the silicone-based primer for oily skin and the water-based primer for dry skin, a special primer that does not contain too much oil is suitable for the eye(lid) area. It has the thinnest skin on your face and, therefore, a lower absorption capacity, resulting in the greasing of your make-up when using heavy products. Eye Shadow Primer is an ideal base for that – both under the eyes and on the eyelids.

Worried about multi priming affecting the results of your foundation?
You don't have to worry at all.

Our tips:
1. Use a clean brush for each primer so that the products do not mix.
2. Allow each primer to soak into the appropriate areas for 1-2 minutes before moving on to foundation.
