Primers sometimes get a bad rap, but I refuse to wear makeup without one.
For me, there’s no point doing my makeup if I don't lay down a primer first. It gives my skin a more polished look, makes my makeup sit better and, most importantly, helps it last the whole day.
Traditionally, primers were mostly marketed to those of us with oily skin, combination skin, visible pores and a shiny T-zone. But did you know there's a brand new primer that can solve (almost) every skin concern?
From hydration, luminosity and mattifying, to anti-redness and dullness erasing, the newly re-launched Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primers are some of the most inclusive face products I've seen, catering to every single skin tone and type.

What Are the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primers?
Foundations and concealers have come a long way with diversifying their shade ranges (but there's still more work to be done), but until now, I don't think I'd ever seen skincare/primer products made for a diverse range of skin concerns.
Because not only do we all have our skin concerns related to our skin type (think enlarged pores, dryness and pigmentation), but different skin tones can also manage unique concerns like redness, sallowness, greyness, yellowness and ashy tones.
Skin isn't one size fits all. Enter, the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Primers.
The new range includes NINE primers - three 'skin perfecters' and six 'colour correctors' - that promise to correct just about every skin concern out there, and for a whopping 24 hours.
All the formulas contain glycerin (great for hydration), spherical powders (for the blurring effect), Peruvian ginseng and light-reflecting pearls for radiance, and polymers that form a light film to make your makeup last. Plus, they're transfer and water-resistant, and can be worn with or without makeup.
