Prepping well is key to achieving a flawless makeup look. Primers help your foundation stay crease-proof and last longer, while nourishing skin at the same time – and Nars’ latest range, launching this month, aims to do just that.

We break down the three different versions available ($65 each) and what issues they serve to fix:

#1: For dull skin

Nars Radiance Primer SPF 35/PA+++

This instantly makes your complexion appear warmer and brighter, and also contains a radiant boosting complex that reportedly revitalises dull skin over time. It also has Chinese herb extracts to promote skin vitality, and encapsulated sunscreen beads that release on contact to protect skin from sun damage.


#2: For oily skin

Nars Pore & Shine Control Primer

This will minimise pores and mattify skin throughout the day thanks to soft-focus powders. It comes with plant-based ingredients such as african whitewood and oleanolic as well as peptides to balance skin tone.


#3: For wrinkles and fine lines

Nars Smooth & Protect SPF 50/PA++++

This helps to blur the appearance of large pores, wrinkles and fine lines, and also has the highest level of SPF in the range, as well as antioxidants, to provide adequate protection from environmental stressors.
