Prep & prime, it’s party time (again)
So many of us skip the primer stage and go straight onto applying makeup.
STOP – a primer is great if you suffer from an uneven skin tone and if your makeup doesn’t seem to last more than 5 minutes especially at parties or special occasions. This New Year add an extra minute or so to prime your skin before applying your makeup and see the results for yourself. Whilst others may melt under the disco light you’ll be toasting the New Year in with picture-perfect makeup.
My Top primer picks:
Photo Finish Primer Foundation by Smashbox
A best-selling, award-winning primer that helps to create a perfect canvas for foundation application whilst increasing longevity. I particularly love the silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea that leaves skin feeling beautifully prepped. The best bit…it also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores.
Stay don’t Stray Primer by Benefit
A dual-action power primer that works around the whole eye area to make concealers and eyeshadows stay put. Concealers don’t crease, eyeshadows stay vibrant and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Lash Optimizer Primer by Elizabeth Arden
As you know my favourite makeup focus is the eyes. So anything to help those lashes stand out is my ultimate must-have. That’s why I love this primer and conditioner which enhances lashes by making them softer, healthier looking and more supple so you can maximise the impact of your mascara.
La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer by Lancome
Inspired by make-up artist’s techniques, Lancôme reveals the secret for a perfect complexion. This translucent make-up base has ultra soft smoothing ingredients and also boosts makeup wear.
Natio Ageless Illuminating Primer
A lightweight primer that creates a smooth base for perfect makeup application. Contains Certified Organic Rosehip Oil to help repair and nourish damaged skin tissue and Aloe Vera to refine the complexion. A great one for evening out imperfections and extending makeup life.
Happy Partying and Happy New Year
