Honest Thoughts on the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

A little makeup primer goes a long way, especially in summer humidity. I tested out the Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer to see if it’d help with makeup longevity.

Beyond that, an aloe water, cherry blossom, hyaluronic acid base, blended with B vitamins, “boost skin for a healthier-looking base and a glassy, post-hot-yoga-class glow.” Read my honest review on Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer here!

This has been especially important to me, lately, with social distancing. I’ve found that, whether I’m inspired from boredom or want to perk myself up, doing a bit of makeup can really help.

Great Beauty Finds: Products for Natural Makeup Looks

Lately, I’ve been rejuvenating my makeup collection. I’m swapping products that no longer work for me with those that are simple, easy to use, and effective.
