Some people never apply foundation without using a primer first, then there are those who have never experienced the fantastic benefits of primers. For the second group, I will explain how, why and when to use primers for every skin type. If your skin is oily, a primer will create a matt finish, preventing oily patches appearing through foundation. Combination skin will benefit as the primer balances oily and dry areas, giving your foundation a flawless lasting appearance. A primer on dry skin will balance dry and flaky areas giving a smooth and youthful appearance.
Primers should be applied to the skin after moisturising and before applying foundation. Two of the best on the market are from Elizabeth Arden®: Good Morning Serum® and Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer®.
Good Morning Serum® contains a blend of Vitamin A and botanical extracts to keep your foundation looking fresh, natural and even. Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer® is a new product from Elizabeth Arden® which instantly improves the appearance of pores and fine lines giving a perfect and long lasting finish to any foundation. The feel of this product on your skin is truly amazing.
After applying our eye make-up the last thing we want are creases, smudges and fading. Using a primer specifically formulated for the delicate eye area alleviates these problems. Elizabeth Arden® Advanced Eye-Fix primer keeps your eyeshadow looking fresh for hours and can be worn alone for a more natural look.
Many women have problems with lipstick bleeding into lines and quick fading resulting in frequent reapplication. Elizabeth Arden® Advanced Lip-Fix cream is a superb lip primer that conditions whilst smoothing out tiny vertical dryness lines and targeting deeper lip lines. It is rich in anti-oxidants and combats environmental damage. This super primer cream will correct feathering and extend the life of your favourite lipstick.
