Primers for a perfect canvas

If you haven’t used a primer yet, you’re missing out. Though some might see it as an unnecessary extra step in their beauty routine, the benefits far outweigh the extra two minutes you spend in the morning.

The importance of primers

So why use a primer? Applied after your moisturiser and before your foundation, a primer evens out your skin tone, creating the perfect canvas for your foundation. Your make-up won’t just apply more evenly and look more flawless, but it will last a lot longer on your skin too. Plus, with all the added benefits included in the formulations, it could even help you combat oiliness, breakouts, dehydration and disguise fine lines.

With so many on the market, it’s difficult to choose just one… Here, four incredibly effective primers that we’re currently coveting:

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, R610

Dermalogica Age Smart Skinperfect Primer SPF30, R720

black|Up 8Hr Correcting Primer, R520

Lancôme La Base Pro Perfecting Make-Up Primer, R495

Which of these would you most like to try, Beauties?
