When looking to truly perfect skin, it takes more than makeup. There are "perfecting" products in addition to primers, that really do work. This newer breed of product do things like plump and fill in lines and pores and mattify to perfect the skin. They have all sorts of fancy names; I call them skin perfectors. There are three new skin perfectors that recently caught my attention.
Benefit the POREfessional - $30.00
This flesh toned silicone feeling liquid immediately diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and fills in pores like no ones business. It's adds a mattifying layer to skin so makeup adheres to it as well. This becomes invisible as it is applied and wears like a primer. It can also be applied to problem areas over makeup.
COVERGIRL truMAGIC Skin Perfector - $10.99
This skin perfecting balm is used after makeup is complete to and soften the look. It fills in fine lines and wrinkles and pores as it gives an airbrushed-like soft look to makeup, while making skin feel velvety smooth. It is applied with the enclosed sponge and is very easy to use. The title magic is not an understatement.
NARS Pro-Prime Instant Line & Pore Perfector - $28.00
This stick form skin perfector is best for filling in fine lines and wrinkles with precision. This is used before makeup as it is just dabbed over areas (lines) that need help. It works with microspheres filled with hyaluronic acid to instantly smooth and provide a gentle plumping effect.
