If you’re anything like me, days are getting increasingly busy, and nights are just as hectic! All that running around is certainly great fun, but it means that the time I can spend on my makeup is down to an absolute minimum, so a great primer in the morning is a real must have!
Estee Lauder’s Matte Perfecting Primer is an absolute godsend for keeping skin looking as flawless as possible. Even though I like skin to have a dewy look, when you’re running around in the ‘delightful’ Scottish weather, it can leave you looking and feeling a little bedraggled, so a little of this in the morning is the perfect way to keep looking as tidy as possible. In the morning, after using my regular moisturiser, I smooth a pea-sized amount on using my fingers, then apply my foundation or tinted moisturiser as normal.
Unlike a lot of primers, Estee Lauder’s doesn’t leave skin feeling dried out or tacky. Instead, it just creates a flawless base, which lets makeup sit beautifully, and although it eradicates shine, it never leaves skin looking cakey or dry.
