In the same way that great underwear provides the building blocks for a great outfit, primer is your best friend when it comes to creating flawless skin. Applied post moisturiser but pre makeup, if we want the perfect canvas for makeup application it’s Laura Mercier we turn to.

When it comes to skin products Laura Mercier’s range really excels (their tinted moisturisers and secret camouflage concealer are beauty editor staples) and their primer is no different. A product that successfully bridges the gap between skincare and makeup, the formula contains Vitamins A, C and E that act as antioxidants to protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment whilst the light-as-a-feather formula smoothes skin ready for your base of choice. The invisible gel style product will not only improve the look of your skin but will ensure your makeup stays looking fresh and colour true all day.
