Prep and prime skin

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Inspired -

Ap­ply­ing a primer be­neath foun­da­tion is like wear­ing great un­der­wear be­neath a party dress: it will smooth and flat­ter, keep­ing ev­ery­thing where it should be, and mak­ing any­thing worn on top look even bet­ter than it would alone. As well as help­ing makeup last for hours, newly re­leased op­tions of­fer a wide range of so­lu­tions, from blur­ring im­per­fec­tions, plump­ing dry skin and us­ing clever pig­ments that cor­rect colour im­bal­ances like ex­ces­sive red­ness or a dull, lack­lus­tre com­plex­ion. Skin can also lose its nat­u­ral rosy ra­di­ance as it ages so primers with a sub­tle lus­tre can help achieve a lu­mi­nous healthy glow.
