The perfect primer for my skin?
Makeup primers are exploding in popularity at the moment. They colour-correct to give you a universal base, smooth textured skin, pores and blemishes, and provide a layer that helps makeup last much longer. But to maximize these benefits, you need the right primer for your skin type.
Primers for each skin typeThe L’Oréal Paris Infallible Primer range has five primers that each address a different skin concern. While all contain the same neutralising and colour correcting pigments to smooth your skin, they each help to combat a different skin concern.
For oily skinIf you have oily skin, reach for a lighter primer like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Mattifying Primer, which is designed specifically to help oil control. It makes your complexion look smoother, helps prevent shiny skin and leaves you with a beautiful matte canvas, so you can build your favourite makeup look.
For dry skinFor dry skin, go with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Anti-Fatigue Primer. It gives a healthy glow to dull or lifeless skin and sits lightly, minimizing irritation when applying. Primers should be applied following your skincare routine, so if you have dry skin, be sure start with favourite serums and moisturisers.
For red skinSkin redness? The winter months, or a heavy night before, can give us all a flushed look. To neutralise use L’Oréal Paris Infallible Anti-Redness Primer – it’ll help immediately reduce any natural redness you’d like to hide. This primer has a light green tint (like a translucent version of your favourite correcting concealer) that works to neutralise redness, smoothing your complexion and preparing your skin for makeup with a universal base. The primer easily blends – don’t worry, no lingering greeness.
For textured skinIf your skin is ‘textured’, the L’Oréal Paris Pore Refining Primer is for you. It helps resurface the skin, filling in any uneven areas for a smooth, prepped surface. This is a must-have for areas of your skin with larger pores or blemishes, and will give you a much more flawless finish with your foundation.
For dull skinIf your skin looks a little lifeless, opt for L’Oreal Paris Infallible Luminizing Primer. It offers a smooth surface like the others in the range, but is infused with brightening properties to add a healthy, dewy glow to your skin. This primer is super pigmented so use sparingly for an under-stated highlight. If you’re looking for something that really pops, this primer’s light formula means it can even be used as highlighting drops to finish your look.
For combination skin
The benefit of having many primer options is that your application is completely customisable, and you can mix and match. The mattifying primer can target your oily t-zone, while the anti-redness primer will neutralise red cheeks and the pore-refiner can smooth skin around the nose.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Primers are created using technology that delivers an ultra-fine, super smooth texture for a light feel on the skin. Infused with micro-pigments that adapt and adhere to your skin’s natural texture and tone, they are perfect good for makeup prep.
To apply, begin by putting a small amount of primer on the tips of your fingers. Rub together and glide over your skin. If you have specific areas you’d wish to target, begin there, then blend the primer working inward towards the nose, then outward towards the hairline. When your primer dries, you’re ready to begin your makeup routine.
