Hopefully by now you know that you need a makeup primer. Every day. A makeup primer helps to perfect your skin for your foundation - or makeup. It does so much more than just "prime" and smooth skin. A makeup primer fills in pores and lines; it creates a barrier to seal in hydration; it helps to keep makeup in place all day. Makeup primers just keep getting better and better. A great example of this are the new Superprimer Face Primers from Clinique. These new primers take makeup priming a step further, as the Superprimers color correct skin too.
Clinique Superprimers come in one formula, as in the formula that smoothes and primes skin is the same, but in five tinted formulas. Each tinted formula is specifically designed for ones' specific skin care needs. Do you have redness, dullness, sallowness or other skin care discolorations? There is a specific primer here for you.
The five colour correcting, skin perfecting shade variation address specific complexion concerns. Each one uses the theory of colour science to color correct or neutralize the contrasting concerns to even out skin and helps makeup look more even.
Colour Corrects Redness - This yellow tinted primer colour corrects skin redness for a neutral, even base.
Colour Corrects Dullness - Pink tinted primer colour corrects dull, lackluster skin for a vibrant, radiant base.
Colour Corrects Dullness for Deeper Skins - Soft, pearlized bronze tinted primer colour corrects ashiness and dullness on deeper complexions for a radiant, healthy looking base.
Colour Corrects Discolorations - Peach tinted primer helps colour correct dark spots, acne scars and areas of hyperpigmentation for a brighter, even-toned base.
Universal Face Primer - This one is a simple makeup primer, with no colour correcting properties. If you have an even complexion, this one is for you.
Colour Corrects Sallowness - Lavender tinted primer colour corrects sallow skin for a healthy base.
I have some redness in my face, but I am more concerned with discoloration and overall unevenness, so I have been using the peach tinted primer. The peach tint works really well to make my skin look more even, and overall more natural and better looking. My makeup goes on more smoothly when using and lasts all day long too.
Clinique Superprimer Face Primers are available now at all Clinique locations for $27.00 each.
