Coloured-primers to deal with different areas of your complexion and individual skincare concerns is nothing new, but it is an idea that has really taken off and you can understand why. Gleaning inspiration from the colour wheel: when two opposite shades are placed on top of each other, they cancel each other out.So whether it is dark circles, redness sallow skin or dark spots, Clarins SOS Primers has a remedy to help diminish your problem areas and create an even base. These new products are in a similar vein to the Clarins SOS face masks released last year and can be mixed, matched and used on various areas of your face.
There are six SOS primers, all with a fluid, hydrating texture enriched with sea lily extract and an anti-pollution complex to help skin become protected from the environment. The consistency is lovely and smooth and feels really comfortable on the skin; not sticky or heavy at all. They are best applied after your moisturiser before you start to apply your makeup, or you could even mix a blob in with your foundation. The white primer, aimed at brightening skin and adding radiance would be a good one for this!
As well as the universal white primer for brightening, there is also a pink one for combating signs of fatigue (yes please!), a peach one to blue imperfections, a coral one to visibly minimise dark spots, a green one to tackle redness and a lavender one to brighten sallow skin. So which one would you pick?
