Lovelies, remember when buying makeup consisted of a foundation, blush, liner and mascara back in the day. What an easy life that was. Nowadays, we are bombarded by new ads, influencers, and an increasing number of products, which gives us anxiety to enter a beauty shop! But, two things that will help keep that money spent on cosmetics set on your face and give you the most results, are primers and setting sprays! So i’ve gathered a few products to help you beginners enter the new world of makeup application.

1. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance.

Laura Mercier’s primer creates a soft focus effect to minimise the look of imperfections with a radiant finish. This primer is a definite recommendation on my list, it has a pearly effect allowing a gorgeous glow.

2. Smash Box Photo Finish Foundation Primer 

Smashbox Photo Finish Super Light is a lightweight formula and oil-free; ideally for those of you with oily skin. This primer smoothes the skin and is ready for foundation application. Looking to keep your makeup on all day, this is a great purchase.

3. Benefit  – The Porefessional Face Primer

Benefit Professional Face Primer is ideal for those with large pores; it helps minimize the appearance of pores, creating a flawless canvas to apply your foundation. 

It is also oil-free, and a smooth, lightweight application.

4. NYX Bare With Me Setting Spray

The NYX Bare With Me Setting spray is infused with aloe and cucumber extracts for sensitive skin and its mist gives the skin a glow, while minimizing the appearance of pores, and lasts up to 8 hours!

It is affordable yet very effective. 

5. Urban Decay – All Nighter Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter states that it keeps your makeup on for 16 hours! Do you believe that? Would you give it a try, because I sure will.

No melting or fading, and no touch ups for those long nights we live to enjoy.

6. Cover FX –  Mattifying Setting Spray

This Cover FX setting spray provides all day shine control, ideal for oily skin, without feeling sticky and greasy. It is one of our favorites for it’s quick drying formula and the fact that it is 100% alcohol free.
