19 March 2019


As the hardworking, boss babes that we all are, most of us head to work with our makeup on for the day. And with a busy day and never-ending list of things to do, we rarely have time to touch up our makeup before the evening's events. But, if you're not careful, your makeup can look worn and dull by the middle of the day. This is where primer comes in.

If you haven't used a primer before, think of it as your own personal Facetune IRL that can make your under eyes look a little less crease-like and your pores less noticeable. The trick to making sure you have flawless makeup that lasts all day (and night), is making sure you're using the correct formula for your skin type.

To help you find exactly what you need, we’ve pulled together our favourite primers for every skin type and concern. From oily and dry to matte, we've found a primer that will work for you.
