Prime to perfection with Make Up For Ever, Kaia Naturals and From the Lab!

Make Up For Ever High Definition Primer - 30ml - $39 -  preps the skin, corrects and enhances colour to help create a flawless complexion. With a light, oil-free formula that creates a protective film on the skin's surface and operates as a shield to prevent foundation for penetrating the skin helping it to last longer and apply more evenly; silica micro beads that act as minuscule light refractors to veil imperfections and give a soft focus effect to skin; and nourishing ingredients to moisturize and protect skin from dryness.

Available in 7 shades:

#0 Neutral - a translucent base for all complexions
#1 Green - minimizes redness, making it ideal for rosacea
#2 Mauve - neutralizes strong olive undertones
#4 Caramel - adds a warm glow to deeper skin tones
#5 Blue - gives a porcelain finish to fair skin
#6 Yellow - adds golden tones to dark complexions
#7 Pink - adds brightness and warmth

I always use a primer because otherwise my foundation totally disappears - I have speculated previously that I have a giant ball of foundation located somewhere inside my body. I've only ever tried a neutral primer up to know so I was very curious to try a coloured one and choose blue hoping it would like up to it's claim to make me porcelain rather then smurf-like - and it really did add a clear, porcelain-like finish to my skin - it didn't make me paler, just made the light tone look more refined, even and so pretty - if you have fair skin and want to be a porcelain-princess, I highly recommend!

Available exclusively at Sephora, and Make Up For Ever boutiques.
Kaia Naturals 24hr Face Cream + Primer - 50ml - $52 - offers supple looking skin with an evenly smooth, matte finish that has been specifically formulated to fill in lines preparing the skin for foundation. The gluten-free formula prevents shine, is 100% natural, contains argan and moringa oils  and won't suffocate the skin or block pores.

Available at various retail locations across Canada - check out to find one near you.
From the Lab Face Primer No. 327 - 30ml - $29.95 - a weightless cream-gel that glides on to skin, creating a smooth, even canvas that keeps makeup looking fresh for up to 24 hours. Features an advanced formula that enhances adherence while it calms and repairs the appearance of skin with multiple skincare benefits which include: anti-aging - with free radical scavengers that protect your skin, minimizing the environmental effects that cause it to age; colour-correcting - with anti-irritants that calm and soothe the skin, providing a natural color correcting effect that helps perfect your makeup; and pore-minimizing - tightened pores reduce oily shine, for a more flawless complexion. After use, skin appears visibly smoother and more naturally luminous for skin that is soft and silky all day.
