Themed Thursday – Ace of base

For a picture-perfect face, you need to start the job properly! What better way than by using a primer, and there are lots on the market to suit every skin type and purse.

To help ‘erase’ large pores, there’s No7 Airbrush Away Pore Minimising Primer. This looks like a cream, but goes on easy like a gel, blurring large pores instantly and leaving skin with a velvet-soft finish. Apply it where your skin needs it, including shiny areas.No7_PMin

bourjoisP_happy_light_luminous_serum_primerTo add some radiance, try Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer, a pearly pink cream that is easily smoothed on before foundation, working as a pick-me-up, especially on mature skin. It gives a radiant finish on sallow skin, too.

And for city-dwellers looking for a protective layer, there’s Rimmel Fix & Protect  Pro Makeup Primer. This is less a re-surfacer and more of a protective layer, with SPF25 and anti-pollution ingredients. Worn alone or under foundation, it gives skin a dewy finish, keeping it in great condition long-term.Rimm_PrPri
