So, what exactly is a primer?

It is the preliminary stage before makeup is applied to prepare and optimise the skin for makeup application.  A good primer smoothes out the skin to achieve an even base and some include additional benefits such as, the inclusion of hydrating or mattifying ingredients.

With the popularity of primers increasing we are now faced with the issue of choosing the right primer for ourselves. How do I choose the right primer for me?

You need to work out what it is that you would like to achieve from your primer, do you want a primer that will help elongate the wear of your makeup? or maybe you would like a primer that absorbs oil and keeps you looking matte? Once you have decided on the key role you would like your primer to play, you are one step closer to finding the right one.

OK, so now you know which primer is perfect for YOU but how do you apply primer?

Use a foundation brush and apply a pea sized amount all over the face. Let this set in for a minute before you apply foundation. Primer should be applied after moisturising the skin and it can lock in this moisture.
