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;
- what type of skin is suitable for.

Astronomical events in 2022 Full Moon Eclipse Details, Meteor Showers: Where to watch, how long it will last and more
In 2021, we had suborbital flights, we had a rover that landed on Mars, we sent the James Webb telescope, the best so far, in space and we expect many "gifts" in 2022. What will we see in 2022 , if we look up at the sky?
One of them will be visible for only 20 minutes, because the Moon is setting. We will have a lunar eclipse on May 16th. Basically, we will have to look at the moon in the morning, around 5 a.m, and we will find that it is very close to the horizon, because it is starting to set, but then it will start to enter the shadow of the Earth. It will be a spectacular phenomenon because we will see both the eclipsed sunset and the rising sun.
We will have another partial solar eclipse, which will be visible from us, on October 25. There, the Sun will be about 45 percent covered by the Moon. But it is a beautiful eclipse of the Sun, which will be seen, and for us the advantage is that it is partially visible from anywhere in the world, so we should not be "upset" that others could see it in full.
The new year will surely be a delight for heavenly viewers, with plenty of celestial events on the calendar. Here are the main events in the sky in 2022, so you can prepare your binoculars and telescope.
There are 12 phases of the full moon in 2022, and two of them qualify as supermoons. The definitions of a supermoon may vary, but the term generally refers to a full moon that is brighter and closer to Earth than normal, and therefore appears larger in the night sky.
Some astronomers say that the phenomenon occurs when the Moon is at 90% of perigee, the closest to Earth in orbit. According to this definition, the full moon in June as well as July will be considered supermoon events.
Here is the list of full astronomical events for 2022:
January 17: Moon of the Wolf
February 16: Snow Month
March 18: Worm Moon
April 16: Pink Moon
May 16: Flower Month
June 14: Strawberry Month
July 13: Deer Moon
August 11: Moon Sturgeon
September 10: Harvest Month
October 9: Hunter's Month
November 8: Beaver Month
December 7: Cold Moon
Lunar and solar eclipses
Partial solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes in front of the Sun, but only blocks some of its light. Be sure to wear appropriate eclipse goggles to see solar eclipses safely, as light can be harmful to the eyes.
A partial solar eclipse on April 30 can be seen in southern South America, the southeastern Pacific Ocean and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Another eclipse on October 25 will be visible in Greenland, Iceland, Europe, Northeast Africa, the Middle East, West Asia, India and western China.
A lunar eclipse can only occur during the full moon, when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align and the Moon passes in the shadow of the Earth. The earth casts two shadows on the moon during the eclipse. The penumbra is the partial outer shadow, and the shadow is the complete, dark one.
There will be two total lunar eclipses and two partial solar eclipses in 2022, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.
When the full moon passes in the shadow of the Earth, it darkens, but does not disappear. Sunlight passing through the Earth's atmosphere illuminates the Moon dramatically, turning it red, which is why it is often referred to as the "blood moon."
The new year begins with the Quadrantid meteor shower, which is expected to peak in the night hours between January 2 and 3 for those in North America, according to the American Meteor Society.
The annual Perseid meteor shower in August is a real delight for those observing the sky, as it produces extremely many streaks of light through our atmosphere.
It is the first of 12 meteor showers during the year, although the next, the Lyrid meteor shower, does not reach its peak until April.
Here are the other rains to watch in 2022:
Lyrids: April 21-22
And Aquariids: May 4-5
Southern Delta Aquariums: July 29-30
Alpha Capricorns: July 30-31
Perseids: August 11-12
Orionids: October 20-21
Southern Taurids: November 4-5
Northern Taurids: November 11-12
Leonids: November 17-18
Geminids: December 13-14
Bears: December 21-22
If the sky remains clear, the Quarantines should reach their peak on the evening of January 3, after 20:00.
Lyride, meteor shower - April 21. In 2022, meteor showers will peak on the night of April 22 until the early hours of April 23.
Eta Aquarid, meteor shower - May 6. The meteor shower will peak on the night of May 5 to May 6.
Caused by Comet Halley, this meteor shower can be seen especially by people living in the southern hemisphere.
Super Moon - July 13th. A supermoon occurs when the Moon is closest to the Earth during its orbit, at the same time as a full moon, making the Moon appear significantly larger and brighter. In 2022 you will be able to see this show in mid-July.
Perseids, meteor showers - August 12 and 13. Perseids can be seen from mid-July to late August, but the peak will be between August 12 and 13.
Orionids, meteor showers - October 21. If it is dark at night, it is possible to see between 10 and 20 meteors in the sky every hour.
Partial solar eclipse - October 25. The eclipse will be visible in the UK, Europe and parts of the Middle East on October 25.
Geminids, meteor shower - December 14. The meteor shower will take place for about two weeks, but the meteorites can be seen best on December 14th.
The first meteor shower of the year, Quadrantidele, has its maximum manifestation period in January, in 2022 it takes place on the night of January 3 to 4. This meteor shower has its radiant in the constellation Bootes and is one of the strongest meteor currents, producing between 100 and 140 meteors per hour. The meteors of this current are bright and very fast.
In the year 2022, on April 14, we will have the phenomenon of the Black Moon (sometimes called in English "Dark Moon" - or "Lilith", meaning "Dark Moon" or "Black Moon"). The moon is the only natural satellite of planet Earth and has no light of its own, but only reflects that received from the Sun. There are several ways to calculate the occurrence of the phenomenon called the Black Moon: the third phase of the New Moon in a season in which there are four such monthly phases (a year with four seasons of three months each); the second phase of the New Moon in a month in which two such phases occur; the month in which the New Moon phase does not occur and the month in which the Full Moon phase does not occur
In 2022, there will be four eclipses (two lunar and two solar), according to NASA. Both lunar eclipses are total and will occur on May 16 and November 8, respectively. The first will be visible from the Americas, Europe and Africa, and the second from Asia, Australia, the Pacific and the two continents, according to eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov.
The 2022 solar eclipses will be partial and will occur on April 30 and October 25, respectively. April will be observed in the Southeast Pacific, and October in Europe, Northeast Africa, the Middle East and West Asia,
The four astronomical events that mark the beginning of the four seasons in 2022 occur at: March 20 17 h 33 m - spring equinox, June 21 12 h 14 m - summer solstice, September 23 04 h 04 m - autumn equinox , on December 21 23 h 38 m - the winter solstice.
On January 20, from an astrological point of view, the transition to the zodiac sign Aquarius is made, until February 18.
In 2022, a real heavenly spectacle is announced
We also have as a spectacular phenomenon the approach of the planet Mars. Mars is approaching Earth in December and will reach about 80 million kilometers from us. At the same time, on the evening when it is best seen all year round, the Moon will cross Mars and cover it. An occultation between the Moon and Mars will be seen somewhere around 7:00 in the morning.
We have other visible planets. For example, in the morning of March, you will see four planets in the sky: Mercury, Mars, Venus and Saturn. Then Mars will meet Saturn in April, and they will be side by side in the morning. Venus will also meet Jupiter on May 1st. From July, all year round, three planets will be seen all night: Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. They will remain visible until the end of the year.
The year of the recapture of the moon
On the other hand, 2022 will be the year of the recapture of the Moon, because almost all the states that can afford it will launch probes towards the Moon. The Americans will launch their Artemis system to the moon and back, with no people on board, will test to see if everything works. India and China will also launch probes to the moon, and it appears that Ukraine also wants to launch a satellite to study the moon closely.
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.
