Dermalogica skin perfect primer

Skin primers were the best-kept secret amongst makeup artists; however, over the years it has become a staple product in almost every woman’s handbag.

So what do primers do? Well primers

  • Provide a base on which the rest of the makeup can be built upon.
  • Some are iridescent giving the skin a shimmery, light-reflecting surface.

My quest was to find the best primer available, and my decision is none other than the Dermalogica Age Smart skin perfect primer SPF 30. After using the primer my foundation was applied with ease, it left my face looking porcelain and flawless. Although it was matifying I still managed to maintain a healthy glow on the face.

As far as price point is concerned, it was more expensive than the other primers I tried; however a little goes a long way.

After seeing the overall look of the makeup, it was worth every cent.

I will definitely recommend this product to ladies that are starting to notice the appearance of line lines, the primer fills them with a noticeably even, smooth surface.
