You haven't been sleeping enough and your daily commute has been tiring you out long before you've even gotten to work. No one can really blame you for feeling haggard, but you can save yourself from looking it by consistently practicing proper skincare and using products such as primers that can act as a moisturizing base before putting your make up on. Here are some of the best primers that can instantly plump and brighten dehydrated and dull skin.
1. BYS Face Primer with Gold Flakes
P599, SM Beauty
The gold flakes and hyaluronic acid content of this base will wake up your tired complexion in a flash!
2. Etude House Conditioning Cream Light SPF25 PA+++
P648, SM Megamall
This has SPF, controls shine, and allows the foundation to glide smoothly on the face.
3. Revlon Photoready Brightening Primer
P825, Robinsons Department Store
Even out your skin tone and get rid of its grayish undercast with this brightening primer. Avoid applying on the T-zone if you're scared of too much shine.
4. Venus and Mars Naturals Pure Actives Virgin Rosehip Oil
Massaging a lightweight oil wakes up the blood circulation which naturally brings out a healthy, dewy complexion. If you're looking for one that won't worsen your acne, try rosehip oil. It can improve the appearance of marks, and it never clogs the pores.
5. Pixi Rose Flash Balm
P1,295, SM Beauty
This primer + skincare product acts as a mask and base that switches on your complexion's radiance. And don't worry about it feeling too heavy—the gel-like texture gets absorbed really fast!
6. 3CE Back To Baby Glow Beam
Mimic a glass-skin glow by dabbing this tinted priming moisturizer all over your face before putting on foundation.
7. Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer
Fun fact: Selena Gomez's makeup artist, Hung Vanggo, loves using this on the singer to give her skin a cottony-soft finish.
