Primers make the perfect smooth complexion canvas, ideal for boosting the wearability of your foundation, or for wearing on its own with just concealer.

Makeup primers are an essential part of our beauty kit, but often a skipped step in our makeup rituals. So, why do you actually need a makeup primer? Well, for starters, primers help create a smooth, more uniform surface by filling in any fine lines and blurring out any imperfections so your foundation can be applied effortlessly and last longer too.
If you’re looking to create that no makeup makeup look, and your skin needs a little coverage support, you can team up a tinted primer like our Tinted Primer with a concealer for a super natural primer look with added sun protection too. If you’re looking to really smooth the skin’s surface, our Fill Perfecting Primer will be your go-to as it’s formulated to fill any fine lines, large pores, and any scarring, plus has light-reflecting pigments too to soften the appearance of any dark circles or blemishes. To create the ultimate dewy, radiant canvas, go for a skin primer like the Illuminating Primer, a sheer, highlighting formulation that gives a lit-from-within luminosity. You can also add it as a mixing medium to any liquid foundation, to help sheer out the coverage for a more natural foundation primer look. And, if you’re looking to prime your eyelids for all the eye makeup effects, our lightweight, silky Shadow Primer is a must for lasting, crease-free, and smudge-proof staying power.
