Which primer should you use?
Is silicon best?
So many questions, and so many brands!
In my experience, foundation sits and stays far better over a primer. A primer smoothes the appearance of fine lines and open pores, and as it name implies, primes the skin ready creating the perfect base for a foundation.
So which one? This is something you may need to play around with to see what works best on your particular skin, but I will try and point you in the right direction.
I have real combination skin, oily T zone with open pores so I need a really good primer to stop my foundations walking off my nose and chin.
Particular favourites in the highstreet world of makeup are such as MAC Prep and Prime and Benefit Porefessional.. then there are the more pro brands such as Skindanavia Skin Primer and KryolanHD micro primer.
These are all amazing primers....But for me, none of these come close to the Illamasqua range of primers. I think these are the worlds best kept secret in the primer field !!
The picture attached shows Illamasqua under the right hand side of the face as you look at it, no filtering, and a very quick and unprofessional application of foundation. But after only half an hour you can see the difference between the two sides of the face.
Contact me for more details, but this product is definitely worth a try! Xx
