A good primer should smooth out skin imperfections on the face and keep the make-up in perfect condition for as long as possible. We have collected the most effective makeup bases - read and choose the one that is right for you.
Facial primers are a controversial product. Today there are a huge number of them on the market and it is not so easy to find a quality makeup base. It is not always clear whether it is needed at all. Let's try to figure it out, and at the same time, we will tell you about those basics for makeup, which, in our opinion, are worth paying attention to.
What is a makeup base?
Primers solve several problems at once:
- Mask imperfections, age spots, uneven tone.
- Makes skin texture smoother.
- Improve the properties of tonal products and increase the durability of makeup.
- A primer cannot replace either foundation or skin care creams, it has a narrow, limited functionality. The basis for makeup does not have to be in a woman's cosmetic bag. However, you can’t do without it if you need impeccable and persistent make-up.
It is important to know that many makeup bases necessarily contain silicones, so due to frequent use, skin pores can become clogged, which will provoke rashes on the face. To prevent this from happening, thoroughly cleanse your skin every evening and, if possible, use a make-up base, not every day.
How to choose a primer according to skin type?
Today, the beauty industry offers a large selection of makeup bases. You need to choose those products that are most suitable for the type and color of the skin.
For normal skin types, a brightening make-up base with sunscreen is ideal. A primer with reflective particles is also suitable.
For dry skin types, it is recommended to use light moisturizing makeup bases with a creamy or oily consistency. To give the face visual moisture, use a product with a shimmer.
For oily skin types, a make-up base is best suited to mattify and mask pores. It will control the appearance of oily sheen throughout the day. The primer can be either water-based or silicone-based. If the skin has inflammation and redness, use a base with a green tint.
For combination skin, you can take a mattifying makeup base and apply it only to problem areas. On other "dry" areas, use a moisturizing primer.
For sensitive skin, you will need a makeup base, with the function of protecting against toxins, toxins, and negative environmental factors. Look for fragrance-free products. If redness and inflammation often appear on the skin, choose a color-correcting primer with a green pigment.
Is there a difference between budget and luxury makeup bases?
Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer here. Choosing a good makeup base requires personal experience. The most important thing in any cosmetic product is how it suits your skin. Hence the relativity of rankings - what has become a panacea for a thousand lucky ones, for you may turn out to be a waste of money.
When choosing a primer, pay attention to the following:
- how effectively it evens out the complexion, hides skin imperfections;
- how long does it keep makeup in perfect condition;

Collections with 70 cuttest pandas in the world that you must share with your friends (2022 edition)
Giant panda (bamboo bear) is a national treasure of China, in addition, it can be seen on the logo of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Below you will find out where you can see a panda in China, how long pandas live and much more, panda pictures by Bemorepanda.
Giant pandas are similar to bears, but differ in their characteristic black and white coloration. Panda's paws, eyes and ears are covered with black fur; a black strip also runs around the shoulders of the animal.
Have you noticed what color a panda's tail is? The tail of the giant panda is white!
Giant pandas spend up to 14 hours a day eating. The fact is that the calorie content in bamboo is small, and the panda quickly begins to feel hungry again.
Having eaten, pandas go to bed for a period of 2 to 4 hours. When they wake up, they again go in search of food.
In addition to feeding and sleeping, giant pandas also climb trees. Yes, these huge clumsy bears can climb trees! Usually, pandas climb a tree to get away from danger, during the courtship period, and also to avoid stronger competitors.
Pandas eat the roots, shoots and leaves of bamboo. Bamboo makes up 99% of their daily diet. In addition to bamboo, they feed on some types of fruits.
3.Look at me
4.Let me show my tongue
Giant pandas in captivity are fed special bread made from rice and corn flour, soy powder and eggs. Wild pandas also eat grasses, insects, mice and even lambs found in the surrounding villages.
Giant pandas in China live in the west and southwest of the country. The city of Chengdu is, without exaggeration, the best place to get acquainted with these cute animals. Here you can visit the big panda and get acquainted with the habits of the animal, which has become one of the symbols of the Celestial Empire.
Giant pandas are dearly loved not only by the people of China, but also by many foreigners - children and adults. The best places in China to see pandas are located in the Chengdu area, which is called the "homeland of the giant panda". In addition, the panda can be seen in zoos in cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Guilin and Hong Kong.
If you are curious to watch the panda in its natural habitat - come to Sichuan! More information on how to visit a giant panda is available on the China Panda Tours page.
Get even closer to see the panda by participating in a volunteer program at the China Center for the Conservation and Study of the Dujiangyan Giant Panda (CCRCGP) near Chengdu. Here you can take care and even feed the big panda.
6.Trying something new
As of 2014, there were only 1,864 giant pandas left in the wild. It is considered one of the rarest endangered species in the world, which is why the giant panda has adorned the logo of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) since the foundation of the organization in 1961.
Today, the only place suitable for the giant panda to live in its natural environment is in a remote mountainous region at an altitude of 1200 to 3100 meters above sea level. These are the foothills of Tibet in the provinces of Sichuan, Gansu and Shaanxi.
Pandas can only live in vast bamboo forests because bamboo is their main food.
In the city of Chengdu, Sichuan province, there are large panda bases (for example, Bifengxia Bifengxia Giant Panda Nursery), where both wild pandas and those that live in captivity are taken care of. The most famous of them is the Giant Panda Research Center, located 10 km from the center of Chengdu.
The habitats of the giant panda are gradually disappearing due to deforestation and the development of agricultural production. There have also been cases of poaching in history. The disappearance of the natural environment for the panda has led to the fact that the animals are under the threat of extinction.
On September 5, 2016, the giant panda was moved from the endangered species list to the Vulnerable category.
10.Let me show you how to eat
The giant panda's natural habitat is protected by the Chinese government. Agricultural land is moving back into forest areas. In the event of an earthquake, rescued pandas are nurtured in a nature reserve and then released back into the wild.
The giant panda is the only vegetarian bear in the world. As a rule, in order not to starve to death, he needs to eat about 12 and a half kilograms of bamboo per day, because only 17 percent of the food consumed is digested. No wonder they spend 14 hours a day eating.
The reason for this inefficiency is simple - the panda's digestive system is unable to process bamboo leaves and shoots. According to Chinese scientists, these animals switched to plant foods only twenty thousand years ago - quite recently by the standards of evolution. During this time, their digestive tract did not have time to change: it is arranged in much the same way as in omnivorous animals. Pandas do not have a multi-chambered stomach or an elongated small intestine where plants are processed. There are no special genes responsible for the production of enzymes necessary for the digestion of plant fibers.
To extract at least some nutrients from the shoots and leaves of bamboo, the bacteria that live in their intestines - streptococci, E. coli and shigella - help the bears.
Pandas extract many times less energy from food than, for example, cows or sheep, and they manage to survive on a plant-based diet only thanks to a special metabolism. As it turns out, pandas only need 1,100 calories a day. This is about 37 percent of the energy consumed by mammals of the same size and mass. Such an economy is not typical for any other animal species, except for sloths with their specific way of life.
Unlike sloths, pandas are quite active, although they move less and more slowly than other bears. In addition, their body temperature is lower than that of other mammals, but falls short of that characteristic of animals that have fallen into hibernation or anabiosis. The main secret to saving energy is a low metabolic rate, which has arisen due to a "breakdown" in the DUOX2 gene. It is involved in the synthesis of the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. The levels of these substances in the body of pandas are even lower than those of a brown bear that has gone into hibernation.
Bamboo bears have the most energy-consuming organs—the brain, liver, and kidneys—are smaller than you might expect given their size. The mass of the brain is about 20 percent less than expected, and the weight of the kidneys and liver is 25 and 37 percent, respectively. All this allows giant pandas to survive on only bamboo leaves and shoots, even though the intestines are not able to digest them properly.

A trip to the sea is one of the best ways to relax and switch. Before you set off, pack your suitcase (thanks, cap). We know it isn't straightforward. Therefore, we have compiled a list of things that will make it easy to pack all the stuff.
Take a photo of the documents and upload them to your phone or cloud storage - in case the originals are lost, copies will remain, and they can be printed or sent.
Passports and their photocopies
It would help if you had a regular passport. Sometimes, you need a valid visa - if you go to the sea abroad. Make photocopies of the first page of your passport and the visa page - you can carry them with you instead of a document so as not to lose the originals.
Insurance must be taken out before the trip: sometimes, it is needed even when applying for a visa. What kind of insurance to arrange, read in our material.
Check with your carrier about online check-in - this is a very convenient procedure that reduces time in queues on the spot. You receive a boarding pass in advance by filling in the required data on the carrier's website. Check if you need to print tickets afterward or show them from the smartphone screen.
Voucher or printed reservations
Guarantee that you can check into the hotel. When booking a hotel, a confirmation voucher can be sent by mail to yourself and forwarded to fellow travelers - you will always have access to it, even if the Internet and connection are lost.
Don't forget your driver's license if you plan to rent a car. They must be international if the trip is overseas.
When choosing clothes, focus on the main pastime. If you spend more time at sea or by the pool, a couple of dresses and shorts with T-shirts will suffice. If there are excursions and trips to nature, you also need to take clothes suitable for such walks.
Road clothes set
Decide what you're going to do. It should be comfortable clothing made of light fabric you feel comfortable on the road.
We bathe in one, dry in the other. A unique cosmetic bag for a swimsuit will also come in handy; you can buy one in a lingerie store.
Pair of T-shirts and skirt/shorts
Choose versatile items that blend well, dry quickly, and don't wrinkle.
One set for each day.
To keep your socks from taking up space in your suitcase, roll them up and put them inside the shoes you take with you.
Light pajamas or a long T-shirt for comfortable sleep.
Long pants and a light jacket/jacket
For chilly evenings or a day trip to the mountains.
Shirt or blouse with long sleeves
In case you get burned and need to escape from the sun.
Clothing for a restaurant or a disco
In many hotels, thematic performances, animations, or dances are arranged in the evenings. It would help if you had something neat and intelligent, but not too much.
Flip-flops or flip-flops are needed for the beach, the pool, and sometimes to take a shower in the room.
Formal and weekend shoes, so as not to be ashamed to go to a bar (some are not allowed in flip flops) or to the terrace in a cafe.
Comfortable shoes for excursions
Worn-out sneakers or sneakers in which you can walk all day without fear of rubbing your feet.
Cap or hat
A cap, hat, or Panama hat will protect against sunstroke.
Not only a fashion accessory but also an irreplaceable thing that protects the eyes from bright light and ultraviolet radiation.
Collect a separate cosmetic bag with hygiene products - it is more convenient to store all the tubes and jars in one place, so they do not hang around the suitcase. And it will also save your things if something spills along the way.
Toothbrushes and toothpaste
Everyone takes a brush, and the paste is in a large tube, one for all participants in the trip.
Shampoo, shower gel, washcloth, deodorant, tonic, or facial wash
Pour the liquid into small jars, and what you can take for everyone, take in a single copy. Remember that if any bottles travel in hand luggage, they must be less than 100 ml. By the way, if you go to an excellent hotel and there are bath accessories, you don’t need to drag some of this, and you can even take something with you as a keepsake. What can and cannot be taken from the hote?hoteldd here.
Better folding, which does not take up much space in hand luggage.
Antibacterial hand gel
It is convenient to carry with you, as it is not always possible to wash your hands on the way, and napkins run out quickly.
Check if your hotel provides towels. If yes, but yours out of your luggage! If you still want to take your own, take a microfiber towel: it is light and dries quickly.
Lenses and solutions for them
We take at least two pairs of spare lenses, as well as a small jar of the solution so that it is enough for the duration of the trip. Alternatively, buy a pack of one-day lenses.
At least sunscreen, after-sun cream, and lip balm with SPF. How to choose the proper sun protection, read here.
To sunbathe. A towel is also suitable for this business, but if several people or a large company are traveling with you, it is better to take a light blanket (but not woolen!).
Go for the paperback one - it weighs less than a hardcover book. And if you plan to read the entire list of books for the summer, think about an e-book - why drag a whole library when you can download several volumes of your favorite authors at once and not worry that the reading has ended on the first day.
Great idea to avoid buying extra plastic bottles. And with a thermos, the water will always be cold - the most it is in the heat!
They take up little space in the backpack and guarantee a fun time on the beach.
Mask, fins, water slippers, air mattress
Take it with you if you do not want to spend money and buy these things on the beach.
It is convenient to wear to the beach - you will add everything according to the list above.
First aid kit
No one is immune to headaches, fever, or indigestion while on vacation. Therefore, collect proven tablets in your first-aid kit that is beyond doubt (why your first-aid kit is always better, we tell here). There are pharmacies everywhere, but finding an analog of Russian medicine is not always easy.
From indigestion, colds, runny nose, allergies, motion sickness, antipyretic, analgesic. Check that the names are well read and you know what each drug is from and what dosage.
Get a set of patches in different sizes and callus patches if you plan on walking a lot.
Panthenol or "Rescuer" will do if you do not calculate the time in the sun and get burned.
Buy iodine or brilliant green in pencil - they won't spill in your luggage and won't ruin your things.
Eye and ear drops
There is a lot of dust everywhere, and seawater can stuff your ears, so put saving drops with you.
If you have specific allergies or asthma, medications should be on hand. This applies to those that are needed in an emergency and those pills that are taken constantly.
Put gadgets in waterproof cases and chargers in a separate bag so the wires do not bend.
A necessary thing: this is a connection, and a camera, and a player, and a flashlight, and a navigator, and a notepad for notes. Install valuable applications on the road, such as offline maps or a reader - everything you need is collected in the article.
To listen to music or audiobooks on the go.
Camera and memory card
If you think the camera in the phone is not enough, we advise you to take a small camera instead of heavy photographic equipment. Why burden yourself with extra weight on vacation?
Chargers and batteries
Check if all gadgets are charged and if all wires are working.
Powerbank (external battery)
To recharge your gadgets on the go. A small power bank with a capacity of 5000-10,000 mAh is suitable. Enough for one or two charges during the day.
There are 15 types of sockets in the world; for example, in India, Italy, Israel, and Cyprus, they differ. Familiarize yourself with the types of sockets in advance so as not to look for an adapter on the spot if you are unsure if your adapter will fit the sockets in the hotel.
How and where to store valuables on a trip on a sea holiday, we tell here.
Preferably two different payment systems, such as Visa and Mastercard. In case of failure of one, it will be possible to use a spare. Remember to notify your bank if you are going abroad.
Remember: you never need to carry all your cash with you. Put the money in different places (of course, not in the luggage you will hand over!). For example, you can hide in a secret pocket of a backpack you take with you in hand luggage.
Take dollars or euros, or any other currency depending on your destination.
What to take a woman
Pareo or sundress
It is convenient to throw over a swimsuit to go to the beach or the pool.
A small bag
A small bag will be handy to add the necessary little things for a walk around the city.
Remember that neither a nail file, scissors, orezers in hand luggage will be allowed on the plane - put them in your suitcase.

In principle, the list of clothes at the beginning of our article is also suitable for children. Remember that the smaller the child, the faster he gets things dirty. Therefore, take additional sets of children's clothing, warm socks, tights for girls, and trousers for boys. Also, children burn faster in the sun, so they take light sweaters and shirts.
Favorite toy with which the child falls asleep or without which he refuses to leave the house.
Diapers and other necessary
In order not to lug a supply of diapers for the whole vacation, find out if the right ones are sold in the place where you are going. You will probably find some diapers, but if you have preferences, it is better to take care of them in advance.
Waterproof sheets or diapers
You can lay it in transport or on a bed in a hotel.
Baby food, bib, and bottle
Baby food for babies under two years old can be taken in hand luggage, but only in the amount needed for the flight's duration (even if the capacity is more than 100 ml). With a bib, clothes can be changed less often, and the bottle will come in handy to dilute the formula for feeding.

Lemon and currant tarts is the favorite dessert of many.
This recipe is of French origin and combines excellently with a slightly crumbly crust and buttery aroma, with a sweet-sour and extremely aromatic lemon cream together with a bit of a more sour currant. Lemon peel was used for this lemon tart, so the aroma is extraordinary. Quite a lot of lemon juice was also used, but the sourness was balanced, it depends a lot on how sour the lemon you use is.
The tart crust is easy to prepare. All you have to do is keep the butter, water and yolk very cold and keep in mind that this dough does not stretch too much, but only enough to be formed into the tray.
The secret of this tart is in the baking of the cream. Cream for tart with lemon and currant should not be allowed to boil too much. It just needs to bind and mix lightly and softly in the middle. Rather, the consistency should be similar to that of the ice-cream.

Before consuming the lemon and currant tart, let it reach room temperature, then put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours. On top you can add meringue or even a little whipped cream.
