When it comes to applying makeup. I really struggle for time in the week. At the weekend I have all the time in the world to sit and spend a good half hour applying my makeup. But in the week? To say I’m rushed is an understatement. Which is why I like products that are quick and easy to apply. And if I can miss out a step I will. But one of the steps I’ll never miss out is applying primer. I have oily skin that requires a good primer to ensure my makeup doesn’t slide off my face by lunchtime. Which is why I want to share with you all the four drugtstore primers that are worth the extra step.
MUA Professional Wonder Primer £5
Now I have to start by saying that this primer costs £5. Which is nuts right? I spend more than this on my lunch most days. But that feels like a waste really compared to this. As for £5 this MUA Primer is pretty impressive! It’s lovely to wear underneath your makeup as it helps to create a balanced base. Or you can wear it on it’s own on bare skin for a fresh and glowy look.
Rimmel #Insta Fix and Go Setting Spray Universal £6.99
I’ve been using the spray for months now and I love it. Mainly because this Rimmel spray acts as a primer and a setting spray in one. Plus it’s great to use in the heat. As you can spray it throughout the day to help revitalise and refresh your makeup to ensure it does not budge.
KIKO Skin Tone Face Base £7.90
I don’t know about you, but I really struggle to walk into KIKO without picking up at least one thing. I can’t help it. And this is the newest KIKO addition to my dressing table. I love it because Skin Tone is more than just a primer. It has a green tint that works to conceal and reduce any redness while also evening out your complexion before applying makeup.
Gosh Overnight Primer Oil Essence £14.49
Although this is a primer. You don’t actually need to apply this just before you apply makeup. Instead you apply it before bed. I know, weird right? But it works! The Overnight Primer Oil Essence is a hybrid between makeup and skincare. And by using the oil at night, you wake up with primed, moisturised and luminous skin ready for makeup.
