4 Favourite Primers!

Hey guys, hope you are all ok, im having a mega busy day today as I started to organise my room this morning thinking it wouldn't take that long however it turned into a full day of throwing out a huge number of bin bags of rubbish and moving furniture etc so ive just set aside some time to catch up on TOWIE and write my blog :) today I wanted to tell you what my favourite primers are and why I love them. 

First is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion Probably one of the most popular eyeshadow primers on the market and im not surprised. Primers are used to increase the longevity of the eyeshadow so it wont budge all day or on a night out, and this definitely does that. This does have a slight neutral colour to it which will hide any redness or veins to give you a good canvas to start applying colour. This primer not only lets you get the longest wear from your eyeshadows it also will give you the best pigment out of them too. This is also great for using glitters and pigments too, its  really handy to have in your kit.  

Second is the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer This is my usual everyday primer, even if I don't need my makeup to last all day I sill like to use a primer as I find my foundation goes on a lot better. This primer can be used on any skin type and tone and it makes your skin feel really smooth and soft. I don't think this is amazing at filling in pores, but Its a great everyday primer for creating a nice smooth finish and it does make my makeup last. 

Third is the Benefit PoreFessional ( I only have the sample size at the minute) This is another very popular primer. I find it really fills in pores and makes my makeup look flawless, you only need a tiny amount so even though this is a little more expensive it will last you soo long. With this Your makeup will not budge all day. 

Finally is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer This is the primer I use in pro kit, it is oil free and I have used it on all skin types and it works really well. I also find that this takes away any unwanted shininess on the skin. You only need a tiny amount again and I love the feel of it on the skin, as your makeup glides on so smoothly. This is probably my favourite of them all. I love the range of primers smashbox have to offer from colour correcting to hydrating to spf primers there is something for everyone.

So they are my favourite primers I love them all, share your favourites below too!

  3. My primer collection isn't very extensive but my favourite would have to be the Laura Mercier foundation primer. I hear so many good things about the Porefessional, but my pores aren't /that/ bad, but I might have to give it a go!
