Our team suggests:

Our Team Suggests:

  • Shake the bottle well before each use.
  • Apply one pump to your fingertips (a little goes a long way!) and spread the primer in an even layer over your face and neck, using upward sweeping motions.
  • Allow the primer to absorb before applying your foundation.


  • I use your tinted spf and the the loose powder foundation, so I use this primer before your tinted sunscreen?

    Asked by: Cece22
    Hello Cece22, We recommend applying Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defense before applying Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer. It will help create a smooth canvas for makeup application and extend foundation wear while providing a hint of skin-perfecting coverage to even out skin tone. -Brittny, Clean Beauty Artist

    Does this primer have shimmer?

    Asked by: kygrace
    Hi kygrace, Our Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer brightens skin for a luminous, healthy-looking glow. This will brighten the complexion and blend in seamlessly. This doesn't leave the skin with any unnatural shimmer effect.

    Makes my powder foundation cake on

    I am having a problem with it making my powder foundation around my mouth look "caked" on. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so how did you solve it ?
