What's the Difference between Primer and Foundation and Concealer?

If you use the search bar at the top of this page, I am sure you will find many more in depth threads about each.
Basically a primer is used to prime your face for makeup. Not everyone uses on, nor is it necessary. They are usually gel or liquid form, you use a bit on your face before applying your makeup. Like priming a canvas before you paint. It will help makeup last longer and may reduce redness and the look of pore size, depending on the type you use.
Foundation is in liquid, cream, stick, powder or mousse form. It is a makeup that closely resembles your skin co lour and you use this to cover imperfections and discolorations in the skin. You apply this all over your face to give a smooth, even toned finish. The makeuptalk beauty blog has a post on the different types of foundation and pros of each.
Concealer is like a heavier foundation. It is used to conceal tattoos, pimples, acne, scars, age spots......anything you like really.
I hope this helped you somewhat get a better understanding.

There are many popular cosmetic brands depending on a persons budget, reason for cosmetic application and preference.
Of course there are the popular cosmetic brands that you can find at your local drug stores, which are cost efficient, but just as good as other brands (Revlon, L'Oreal, etc.
Then there brands found in department stores, MAC, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, etc.
And of course, there are the labels known by professional make-up artists. Temptu, INGLOT, etc.
In my personal opinion, there is not ONE cosmetic brand that is better than the others. Every brand has so many cosmetic innovations that are great!
I hope this helps.
