WEEKLY MUST HAVE: Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Primer

I'm not going to lie, I don't always use a primer in the winter months. My skin is more sensitive and dry and I just don't feel like I need the added coverage. But come Spring and Summer, and a primer is the first step to my everyday makeup routine (when I wear face makeup).

But Spring is all about perfect, glowing, dewy skin - and if you weren't blessed with it via the gene pool, then you better fake it.

Which leads us to my current discovery: Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Primer. It gives you that ethereal, "glowing from the inside" luminosity. It's super light and, like all primers, should be applied after a moisturizer, prior to makeup. Think of it as carrying around your very own hand held lighting equipment - for that perfectly highlighted, pop of pearl shimmer. It makes your skin that beautiful.

I'm semi-obsessed with this specific primer because it looks so good alone, sans makeup. Truth be told, I have yet to wear it with makeup at all! And when I apply after my morning moisturizer, I use nothing else, yet people stop me and ask what's different about me? Am I well rested? Did I just get a facial? A peel? The secret to my glowing skin... a glowing primer.

Pearl Glow reminds me of another longtime favorite: Fresh Twilight Primer, although the Fresh one is definitely more creamy in consistency, hence it is a bit thicker and heavier on the skin. I think I'm actually preferring Tarina Tarantino's lighter, liquidy fluid. It casts a softer glow and doesn't cake up even the slightest. I have a feeling it'll look pretty fab with makeup on too. Will try it tonight, but I'm sure that it won't disappoint.

PRICE TAG: $32.00
