THE BASE primer
Are you concerned by large pores, wrinkles, fine lines, or oily skin? We have some exciting news for you this month. Yes, we have unleashed our new product - the answer to all your worries. It’s time to say goodbye to those imperfections and HELLO to flawless skin! THE BASE is the essential primer, to prep and smooth out your skin, ready for your make up to be applied. Our primer is simple to apply but also effective, leaving you with a silky, even skin with a mattifying finish so that you are perfectly prepped for your contouring. At Contour Cosmetics, we have expert advice on how to use THE BASE primer for optimal results!
How to use:
Step 1: Prep Your Face
First of all, make sure you wash your face thoroughly with a gentle cleanser so that you remove all dirt and impurities, ready for makeup application. It is also important to clean your hands if you plan on applying THE BASE primer with your fingers, to avoid spreading dirt.
Step 2: Moisturise
For the best results – you need to ensure that your skin is hydrated. Primer is not a replacement for moisturiser. After adding a generous amount of moisturiser to your face, allow this to dry so that it is absorbed by your skin.
Step 3: How much primer do I need?
Squeeze a pea-sized amount of primer on the back of your hand – this should be enough for full coverage of your face and neck. You shouldn’t use more than this as it can cause your foundation to clump and look too heavy.
Step 4: Do I need tools for application?
If you don’t want to apply it with your fingers, you can use our blending brush, the Pro Blender, or our stockist, Niko Pro, who have a wonderful OVA Brush Set.
Step 5: Dab and Blend
Starting from the centre of your face and working your way out, dab the primer all over for a light coverage. As we say at Contour Cosmetics, a small amount of primer can go a long way! Pop some onto your eyelids to keep your eye makeup game strong throughout the day and also a thin layer onto your lips to keep that colour looking fresh!
Step 6: All set
Once your primer is evenly applied, allow a few minutes for it to set before you start contouring or applying foundation on your face.
…And it is as simple as that. You have your flawless face and make-up-ready! Although makeup artists have introduced countless foundation formulas and concealers to smooth out pores and lines, our THE BASE primer is a whole different ball game. You will have flawless results; make up that will not budge and take you through the whole day without the need to reapply.
