If you’ve been debating adding a primer to your makeup routine, we’re here to tell you that you definitely should. Not only will a primer extend the wear of your makeup, it will also make your skin appear smoother and act as buffer between makeup and skin to prevent oxidation. Some face primers also have skincare benefits to help condition your skin while you wear them. And if it’s glowing skin you’re after, they can help with that too. We’ve rounded up a few face primers that will help even out skin tone, correct discolouration and add radiance so you don’t need to pile on makeup for a flawless complexion.
