Primer is one of the best way to keep your makeup looking fresh all day long.
To make the application smoother it’s best to separate your skincare and makeup with a primer. There are numerous different primers that will help you correct tone, bring luminosity to your skin and achieve different textures, you just have to find the right one.
Cover FX recently launched their new Illuminating Primer that helps bring an instant glow to the skin and will help correct skin dullness.
This silicone, fragrance and paraben free primer is perfect for all skin types and works beautifully with any foundation. The greatest thing about Cover FX primers is that they can be used as a primer by day and as skincare by night. It not only creates a seamless base for your foundation, it’s also good for your skin.
A cult classic when it comes to primers is Benefit’s The Porefessional face primer. It instantly minimizes and blurs out fine lines and pores to make your foundation application smooth and flawless.
The greatest thing about this primer is that it can be used in many ways: underneath your foundation, worn alone and can be patted on top of your foundation throughout the day for touch ups. It’s oil free and translucent so it works well for all skin types and tones.
For a primer that is excellent at correcting the complexion, Lise Watier’s Luminous Correcting Primers is the one to try. They are infused with a Diamond Lumière Complex so it not only corrects the skin tone, it also brings a natural luminosity to the skin.
It comes in four different colours, “abricot”, to restore the glow to medium to dark skin tones, “banane”, to illuminate fair complexions, “vert”, to neutralize redness and “rose lilas”, to correct dull complexions in olive skin tones.
There are many primers on the market right now, but the aforementioned types are a few that are affordable and provide amazing results.
If you have never used a primer before or are unhappy with the one you are using now, try one of these three primers and see the difference it will make in your foundation application and your overall complexion.
