...because not to prime is a crime
If you haven’t been using a make-up primer then you really haven’t been achieving the full potential of your cosmetics. A good primer will help combat shine, reduce redness and create a good base for your foundation or tinted moisturiser to cling on to, leading to a longer-lasting harder-wearing look. It’s the one step to achieving a flawless finish which we would never skip. Want to up your beauty armour? We’ve shone the primelight on our faves… there’s no need to thank us!
This light primer glides over skin, helping to fill fine lines, banish dry skin and minimise pores – it's no wonder it's an award-winner and Bare Minerals' best-seller!
With grapefruit extract at its core, the Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener from Jane Iredale promotes luminosity and visibly reduces fine lines in an instant. Plus it's gluten-free and anti-ageing.
This primer contains hyaluronic acid which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water making it a great ingredient to plump wrinkles and improve skin's hydration.
Want longer lasting lipstick? They try a lip primer. Antipodes' Kiwi Seed Oil Lip Conditioner is a great way to prep your pout, plus it can be applied on top of any lip stain to nourish lips just like a balm.
