Let's Talk: Current Favourite Primers

It's been awhile since I've uploaded a blog post and that's been purely because I've been extremely busy with work and college however I am back! Today i decided to share with you my current favourite primers as it has become a vital step in my makeup routine to ensure my skin is looking its best. So without further a do if you would like to know my current must have primers then carry on reading...

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer

In the past year I have discovered more Soap & Glory products and they have soon become one of my all time favourite drugstore brands. I ordered this primer on a whim after only hearing it mentioned a few times online and wasn't the least bit disappointed with the product. It's a great one for those who have oily skin as it absorbs oil and helps to keep you matte all day. It helps to smooth the skin with it's pore filling factor and i also find it to correct and even out my skin tone if any redness is present. Overall i would recommend this primer to any girls with blemished, oily skin as I feel it would improve the look of your base allowing foundation to apply much smoother and last all day, and not to mention is drugstore which means it's affordable too! 

Make Up Forever Step1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer

I gave into the hype with this product and decided to try it out for myself a good few months ago.I do have large pores that I wish to cover up, so I often gravitate towards pore-filling primers. I expected it to be very much like Benefit's Porefessional and it is somewhat similar however I needed to mention them both. This product has a silicone consistency and a hint of peach colouring which helps to correct and have a blurring effect on the skin. Unlike the porefessional I apply this all over my face which leaves my skin smooth and allows foundation to glide seamlessly over the top. It's satin texture helps to fill in pores making this again, a great primer for those with oily skin. 

Too Faced Hangover RX Replenishing Primer

As a pose to the other primers I've spoken about so far this would be my recommendation to girls with dry/combination skin due to its hydrating effect. It's infused with coconut which gives the product a heavenly scent which in my opinion makes it even more enjoyable to use. It has a thin texture that hydrates and allows makeup to apply easier and smoother. I especially enjoy using this product in conjunction with porefessional as it creates the most perfect base. I would apply porefessional to the T Zone and the Hangover Primer elsewhere and this combo will ensure my makeup looks flawless and stays on all day. 

Benefit Porefessional Primer

I've most certainly saved the best till last with the Benefit Porefessional Primer. I have been using this product for absolute years and couldn't tell you the amount of times Ive had to repurchase it. It's a must have in my collection and for a great reason so If you suffer with large pores and oily skin and cannot seem to find a primer to combat with that then this is the one for you. I like to press this into the skin rather than rub as I find that gives me the best result. I will only use this in my T Zone as it's great for disguising pores and ensuring my makeup doesnt disappear throughout the day especially around my nose as that's something i've struggled with in the past. 

I really hope you've enjoyed this post and it's perhaps helped you
discover a new must have primer. Leave a comment below if there are
any primers you think I should try as I'm always looking to test out new products. 

With love,
