Beauty hacks: 5 of the best primers

Now that it’s the party season, we need our make up to last from day to night, taking us from our desk to drinks in a flash.  

Give your make up the staying power you need during the festive season with any one of these 5 amazing primers.

1. Benefit The POREfessional 

Not only will this Benefit primer keep your make up from creasing throughout the day, it preps your skin before you apply foundation. The primer minimises the appearance of pores to give a smooth base for the rest of your make up. It’s oil-free so perfect for all skin types, and we love it!

2. Becca Backlight Priming Filter

This Becca primer preps your skin by smoothing it and minimising the appearance of pores. As well as this, it offers a backlighting effect on your face that will leave you with a dewy glow when you apply your foundation.

3. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

The Laura Mercier classic Foundation Primer is super lightweight, making it the perfect base for your foundation because it offers a smooth start to your make up without feeling too heavy.

5. Lisa Franklin Pro Effect Luminescent Base

This one is a bit more of a splurge but worth every penny. It’s made of a unique formulation that works as a primer and an anti-ageing serum in one. Think reduced redness, refined lines and wrinkles, and the smoothest make-up base you’ve ever had. Life changing.
