October is upon us and as we say farewell to the Season of Sun kissed skin and freckles, it is time to welcome in the Autumn with just a touch more coverage. So out goes the tinted moisturiser and on goes your primer, but which one should you choose?
No longer just a base for your foundation, they are now clever little formulations that refine open pores, create light effects, moisturise, protect and even out the skin. How to use foundation primer by lisa Precious.
Mac Prep + Prime Beauty Balm SPF 35, £21
What is there not to love about this product? It delivers just about everything to the skin, lightly tinted in a sheer beige tone, it will work
for most complexions, it then goes on to being a colour perfector and face primer with the added bonus of a whopping UVA/UVB
SPF 35 defence and even then smoothes out lines and lightly moisturises to work as the perfect primer for your foundation.
A 5 star product .
