  • How to use

    Think of Pregame Primer as the bridge between your skincare and makeup. Applied as very the last step of your skincare for daytime slugging or the first spot in your makeup routine.

    On makeup days: after sunscreen, massage three pumps of Pregame Primer across your face and neck, focusing on lymphatic drainage points to promote blood circulation and to create a smooth canvas to then apply your normal makeup routine. This helps makeup longevity by creating a barrier to prevent sunscreen and sebum from dissolving makeup.

    On no makeup days, Pregame Primer can be used as a form of daytime slugging to seal in your skincare. Because it has a radiant golden finish and a patented ingredient that stops redness at the skin's histamine level, it's a great skin tint replacement for busy days on the go!

Moisturizing Primer

I saw the Shark Tank episode with Fiona and her story was so relatable. I still wear masks, especially to work, and have cut out a lot of makeup from my routine to focus more on my skin and sporting the natural look. The primer, sunscreen, and makeup combo I previously used would leave me dry at the end of the day, mostly feeling it on my forehead and cheeks. I switched to Pregame Primer about 2 weeks ago and the dryness is nonexistent. It's almost like a moisturizer itself that sometimes I'll wear it alone followed by sunscreen. There is a smell to the primer that could be off putting, but I really don't mind since my skin feels great no matter if I'm doing a natural look or a full made up face.

Phenomenal, fresh, and lightweight!

I’ve never worn primer before in my life (I don’t wear foundation, concealer, or other “skin” makeup), but this primer has caused me to totally change up my makeup routine! It’s lightweight, and I wouldn’t even notice I was wearing it if not for the way it makes my skin look FLAWLESS and glowing! Who knew something so lightweight could pack such a huge punch. Best primer ever!

Solid Primer!

I'm not a big fan of most primers because of the intense tackiness they can leave on my skin. However, this primer didn't have any tacky residue when I applied it. It left my skin soft and dewy. My makeup lasted the entire day! Very durable primer. Would consider this a staple in my makeup routine.
