I’ll let you in on a little secret….

I didn’t even know primer existed until I started my diploma. I thought you just smothered your face in moisturiser then went in hell for leather with foundation.

The rise of primer isn’t just a result of genius marketing campaigns by cosmetic companies. People love it because, well, it’s the shit!

A flawless base will do for you what a crisp, clean canvas will do for a painter. It is a MUST HAVE for flawless, long lasting makeup. Primer does this by hiding large pores and fine lines, combating sallowness and helping your makeup go on better and last longer.

Find the right one for you; and you will notice the difference and longevity in your look. I can promise you that.

So, Which one then?

  • The first thing you need to consider is any allergies. That goes for natural makeup as well. Check the ingredients.

  • Look for the products that match your skin type / tone as well as your budget. Doing this will narrow down the time spent in the shop staring at the rows and rows of different primers with that WTF look on you face.

  • Now it’s time to check out the testers and ask for some samples. Hint: I've noticed samples don't last that long (maybe a couple of weeks) so try out those babies as soon as you can.

  • Go Shopping! You can even do it online in your PJ's because you know exactly what you are looking for!
