The new essential in your makeup kit is a face primer. For those of you who are not aware of the importance of a primer, it’s the new step that is followed by the age-old regime of CTM (Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing). Not only does a primer hold your makeup for a long time, it preps your skin for absorbing makeup, minimises pores and fine lines and acts as a protective layer between your skin and your foundation. Here are three face primers in India that you must try.
If you need to learn how to apply a face primer, here’s our favourite (very simple and easy) Youtube tutorial by BlushBeautyTutor;
#1 L’oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer
Recommended for oily skin, the ‘L’oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer’ has a mattifying effect. It takes away any signs of oiliness, fine lines and pores like magic. It has a slightly rosy shade that covers imperfections and gives a perfect base for your foundation coverage
#2 Benefit The Porefessional
Benefit Cosmetics’ ‘The Porefessional’ is best suited for women with large pores. This oil-free primer with Vitamin E extracts minimises the appearance of pores and leaves the skin feeling silky and smooth. It also holds your makeup together for a very long time.
Benefit The Porefessional is one of the good face primers in India available at Sephora stores. If you are lazy to go to a story you can also get it online on www.eBay.in by following this link http://goo.gl/9byvmK
#3 Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer
Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer is a light-weight product, good for everyday use. For people with acne-prone skin this primer’s creamy tint covers blotchiness and redness perfectly. It also controls oil and refines skin texture. You need to allow two-three minutes for this product to settle into the skin and it’ll keep your makeup on perfectly for around six hours (on a greasy summer day).
