It was another busy week with Ms Sonia Kruger – Mornings, a swimwear shoot and yet another promo for Big Brother. It’s been go-go-go! And with all that “shuffling” (see YouTube video below), you may ask, how does one keep the face on for 12 hours? The answer is my friends (apart from the proximity of a ridiculously talented make-up artist): Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer.
Now, like myself, you may have had dalliances with potions that claim to prime but that have been little more than skin-putty or useless balms that made your face way too producty. Yes, you want the benefit of a primer – an undercoat to foundation that keeps your base looking better for longer; but you still want your skin to look, well, like skin. Is it SO much to ask?
Hourglass Veil Primer is a mineral-based, water-resistant primer with SPF 15 that neutralizes the skin, minimizes shine and creates a smooth, uniform canvas for flawless makeup application.This fine, satin-finish formula helps keep makeup looking fresh and prevents fading. Veil Mineral Primer also absorbs excess oils and minimises the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light to help hide and soften skin imperfections and fine lines.
Basically, it works around the clock to make you look hotter. A tiny little squirt is all you need, thankfully, because I’m not going to pretend – it’s a little on the Xy side. But then again, can you put a price on not looking like a drowned rat at the end of the day? Hardly.
So, Glams, if you do look a little rough around the edges come midday, do make the necessary investment, because as Napolean Perdis would say: “It’s a crime not to prime.”
