Best Makeup Primers That Deliver Flawless Finish


After years of resistance, I finally gave in to primers and it truly changed the make up game for me. A sheer layer of cosmetic over your foundation can make it last longer, while hiding your pores away and covering up colour instabilities.

If you still haven’t fallen in the love with the simple primer, here are some of my favourites to help you take the first step:

Smashbox Original Photo Finish

Smashbox’s primer is literally an award-winning primer. This legendary primer reduces pores, lightens up the skin, and gets your make up to last all day. It has a silky oil-free formula and works under any foundation or concealer.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer has cult following, and rightly so, because of its silicone-free base and natural composition. It hugs your face like a second skin and means business when it comes to performance.

Mac Prep + Prime

Mac’s shimmering formula sets deep into your skin and results in giving you perfect selfie face. It is also loaded antioxidants, caffeine and other skin loving vitamins.

Blue Heaven Perfect Make-up Primer

This sturdy purple tube comes with 30g of product and is easy to spread across the face. It is long lasting and goes with any kind of make up base. The best thing I love about it is certainly its non-fragrance feature.

Give it a try. It’s worth it.

Take care!
