Transform your skin into the ultimate canvas with our pick of multi-tasking primers

Primers were first used to extend the wear of stage performer's makeup throughout shows under harsh lighting acting as a budge proof base. Today advanced formulas that are able to even skintone, mattify and hydrate, making them a nifty dual-purpose product to have on standby in your makeup bag. And it's not just skin that can benefit from the perfecting properties of a primer - there are incredible hair products on the market that are formulated to nourish and protect hair, too.
