Bobbi Brown has a new primer collection that is pretty much everything-proof
Your foundation's new BFF
When it comes to foundation, a flawless application and amazing product won't get you far if you have yet to ace the base. The key to all perfect makeup looks is to ensure that your canvas is prepped enough to take on a seamless coverage — even if you've got the best setting spray available in the market. Whether you've got dry or oily skin, a nifty primer is what you need in ensuring your foundation doesn't melt halfway through your day. After all, you don't want to resemble an oil slick by lunchtime.
This is where the new new Primer Plus Collection by Bobbi Brown comes in. Made for foundation wearers (and anyone who is looking to score a refined pre-makeup application), this complete range has everything you need when it comes to primers — and more.
Those with oily skin can opt for the Primer Plus Mattifier, a formula that has sebum-absorbing powders to reduce excess oil sans taking out the moisture from your skin. Think of it as a liquid blotting paper, but with the ability to minimise the appearance of pores while leaving a soft matte finish on your skin. If you want a primer that brightens your skin tone, try the Primer Plus Radiance SPF 35, a makeup-skincare hybrid that can multitask between soothing your skin and evening your complexion. Its formula has cucumber and apple extracts, caffeine and liquorice along with ultra-fine pearl pigments to give your skin a lit-from-within glow.
But if you need a primer that also packs a punch when it comes to SPF, take on the Primer Plus Protection SPF 50 — armed with UVA and UVB protection to guard your skin from premature ageing. After you're done with your complete makeup look, don't forget to set your face, stat. Use the Primer Plus Hydrating 3-in-1 Setting Spray that has vitamins and botanical extracts as a setting spray or as a mid-day skin refresher.
Available July 2018 at all Bobbi Brown Cosmetics counters.
