Ballerina Tested- Primer

Third in my series, I wanted to focus on primer.

Primer is used for under your makeup, it gives your complexion a little boost, blurs blemishes and amps up the radiance ! I have only in the last year started to use primer with stage make up, and I have to say it has not just giving a dewy look but also helped to prevent breakouts that you can sometimes get when wearing such thick make up every night. Also, after long days in the ballet studio and heavy shows in the evening you find by the morning your skin looks tired, no matter how much moisturiser you put on it needs a booster, so primer is a big thing in my life right now ! I have knuckled down on a few of my favourites..

Here they are  ..

 

Lancôme

La Base Hydro Glow

This was a lovely base to start with. Didn’t quite last the full 24 hrs that it’s says, however, it smelt lovely and gave a very subtle glow. W

No7

Skin Illuminator

 The pearl tint creates that lovely soft focus effect. At £12.50 i think it’s an excellent purchase for its price.

Mac

Strobe Cream

I really like this one ! It’s great if your wearing heavier foundation ( like stage make up ) and really does last ! A great find.

NXY

Away We Glow

 The dropper applicator in this lightweight luminizer, lets you add a dose of glow to your foundation. Or moisturiser for a natural, no fuss face. I love it !!!! It gives me that ‘just had a holiday’ look.

Origins

VitaZing

It’s advertised as a moisturiser but I feel it acts more like a primer... It’s divine ! It’s super light but gives you that look you get when you’ve just have a facial ! There is a downside.. it’s on the pricy side.

Bring it Back

This week I have chosen the female back ! I have found some beautiful and unusual designs. When we move our arms in ballet it all comes from our back muscles, and this is how we get that graceful ports de bras. It's where we start our expression so we never underestimate the importance of a pretty back.
