These Colour-Correcting Primers Will Prolong Makeup Wear And Give Skin A Gorgeous Glow

These might just be life-changing.

We love our primers. They don’t just prolong your makeup, they even help correct uneven skin tone, cancel out redness and brighten your overall complexions. Just remember: lavender corrects dull skin tones, pink brightens, green reduces redness and peach masks spots. Here are the ones to get now.

#1: Clarins SOS Primer, $56
With a total of six different shades each targeted at various skin discolouration concerns, this contains a High Lumitech Complex to correct, revive and illuminate complexions instantly. It is also made with organic sea lily extract to hydrate and the brand’s anti-pollution complex to protect from environmental damage. #2: Mamonde Cotton Veil Primer SPF50/PA+++, $22
This is infused with cotton extract to prevent moisture loss while soothing and protecting skin. Three different colours are available to brighten complexions and leave a dewy, luminous finish. #3: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer - Color Correcting Blend, $72, Sephora
Not only does this fill in fine lines, blur out enlarged pores and even out skin tones, it also contains antioxidant-rich vitamins A and E, as well as peptides to protect skin from environmental pollutants, damage and stress. #4: Three Angelic Complexion Primer, $60 each
Lightweight and blendable, this feels like second-skin once applied and helps to correct and treat discolouration while imparting a gorgeous, luminous glow. #5: Make Up For Ever Redness Correcting Primer, $70
With a lightweight and creamy texture, this hydrates, brightens and corrects redness for a more evenly-toned and smooth complexion. #6: Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer, $55
Micro-encapsulated beads of pigment are suspended in the formula and burst once applied to adapt to your skin tone. This high-tech formula even fills in the look of fine lines, minimises pores and controls shine all while prolonging your makeup. #7: Laneige Skin Veil Base Cushion SPF 14/PA++, $48
This makeup primer base cushion compact helps you achieve an even and clear skin tone. It also acts as a quick and easy base makeup for touch-ups on-the-go. It contains an Advanced Oil Control Effect to ensure that excess oil is absorbed. #8: Nyx Professional Makeup Studio Perfect Primer, $24
This absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving any sticky residue. It also conceals redness, brightens and provides a smooth surface for foundation to go on easily. Main image: Showbit.com
