Top Tip! Make Up Primer

Expert Make Up Artist Finalist two years running, Totally Gorgeous' Donnamarie lets us in on her top tip ~ make up primer, not to prime is a crime!

"Makeup primers are to help makeup last longer. Some fill in lines and pores to give makeup a smoother canvas, some combat oily skin, some even have colour correcting properties to tone down redness, sallow skin, etc. There are primers for the whole face, for the eyes, and for the lips"
 
Always thought make up primers were a waste of time? or perhaps you weren't even sure what they were, think again these little miracles help to sooth out our complexions and are the secret to keeping make up on.
 
Makeup primer is designed to smooth and conceal fine lines and uneven skin texture. , It ensures that a person has a smooth, even, uniformly coloured surface on which to apply cosmetics, and helps them adhere properly to the skin.

The primers give the makeup something to grab onto and help your makeup last longer, because the makeup primers create a smooth and perfect surface

There are a variety of area-specific and problem-specific primers: for instance, one for lips can keep lipstick from feathering, and a tinted one can make a splotchy complexion look better. Though makeup can look fine without using these products, it generally won't last as long and may not have quite as polished a look.

A primer should be applied after moisturiser and before foundation. It's essential that you let in sink in for a few minutes giving it enough time to penetrate,
 
Benefits of Using:
 
* Smooth the skin surface
* Even out skin tone
* Create a perfect surface for your makeup
* Disguise skin flaws and imperfections
* Pamper and nourish your skin
* Create a perfect base for longer lasting foundation
* Allow the foundation to go on smoother
* Reduce redness and inflammation
* Moisturise your skin and keep it hydrated all day long
* Stop oil and shine
 
There are lots of primers on the market ranging in price, our favourite at the moment is benefit "that gal" brightening face primer (priced at £22.50) although Boot's Seventeen Photo Flawless Primer (priced at only £4.99) comes in a close second and is much easier on the purse. 
 
Smashbox, Bareminerals, Estee Lauder, Clarins and Lancome also have a range of primers.  We'll be testing some of these over the coming months and will let you know which ones we rate.

The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right.
