Some people think primers can be skipped but they really do help keep your makeup in place all day. We always like to use primers on our brides and clients as they are perfect for minimising pores or adding an extra glow. We have tried and tested various primers over the years and here are our top 5.
MAC – PREP + PRIME SKIN
This smooths the skin and allows flawless makeup application. It evens out skin tones and any redness.
