Prim and Proper...Review of Foundation Primers

Every girl strives for flawless, unblemished skin, its an unwritten fact. But women across the World suffer with the same predicament; how to keep that just applied freshness all day long? Its simple really, invest in a primer and apply before using your daily foundation. Sounds pretty simple right? So why is it girls are still getting it Oh So Wrong. Pretty much every day I walk down the street, and see women with blotchy and unbalanced skin. Now I'm not saying my skin is perfect, but I've tried and tested an abundance of foundation primers and managed to cut it down to just two. Don't say I never do anything for you girls! The two finalists are (drum roll please); Laura Mercier Foundation Primer and High streets very own, Loreal's Studio Secrets Resurfacing Primer.
First things first, tilting towards the high end of the primer spectrum, at a steep £28, is specifically created for oily and sensitive skin types. The primer is a lightweight creamy gel, which creates an invisible layer between your skin and your foundation. Personally this primer works well with my skin and compliments my skin type, the ointment holds a fruity scent and will leave you feeling fresh through out the day.
Loreal has yet again let us 'normal people' into a studio secret to give us a helping hand to smooth out the surface of our skin. And boy are we grateful! Inspired by professional make up, this primer masks wrinkles and uneven skin tone with just one light coating, leaving the complexion unbelievably smooth with a velvety touch. And at a mere £14.25 this little secret in a pot is hard to beat. Enjoy <3
