Our top 5 primers in Dubai

Primer is the key to making sure your makeup stays put!

You’ve heard about them, you’ve probably seen them in the stores but what do makeup primers actually do?

A primer is a cosmetic product which creates a smooth, even barrier between your skin and your makeup. They help to fill in pores and fine lines, allowing products to glide on smoothly for the perfect application. Primers also create a canvas for your makeup to adhere to, not sink into, ensuring longer-lasting beauty, especially when you live in a hot and humid climate like ours.

When it comes to primers a little bit goes a long way. Start in the center of the face and work your way out – you want a light coverage, not heavy. We recommend using your fingertips or a sponge for a seamless application and make sure you avoid the eye area. Wait a few minutes for it to set before applying your foundation.
