Everyone has a beauty product that they skip out on, or honestly, one they just have never used. Some of my friends say they don’t really dig eyeliner, others tell me they rarely apply foundation. For me? It’s primer.
It’s not that I don’t like it, at all.

It’s more that my mornings are busy and I’m often racing against the clock. Ever arrive to your train only to have the doors close in your face as you sprint to get on? I refuse to let it happen again.
And because I’m in a rush, I pair down my products. Primer gets the boot mostly because I don’t have especially oily skin and I wear minimal foundation anyway.
