Preparing the canvas: The importance of primer

Stefan's Jacqui Motteram-Smith says the most important step in a woman's beauty regime is laying solid foundations.

Any professional painter would agree – never apply paint to a wall without a primer agent in order to achieve that smooth and balanced finish.

So needless to say, primer is the most important part of a women’s make-up regime after your daily skincare ritual (cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise).

Primer serves as a protective base for the foundation to grab onto which makes your make-up last longer, so you don’t have to touch up as often. This ultimately means you SAVE money on foundation in the long run!

Primer is also great for oil control for those with problem areas and contains moisturising properties to keep your skin hydrated, especially in this harsh Queensland heat. It’s a win win!

We recommend the Stefan complex correction Face Primer, which stands out from the crowd with its combination of silky blend ingredients and lightweight feel, perfect for reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin.

If you’re looking for a primer with a little something extra, Stefan has just launched their fantastic new Glow Primer, which contains light reflective particles to prime and illuminate the skin, all in one go.

The Stefan Glow Primer has ultra subtle brightening qualities that enhances your skin’s natural radiance and creates that sought after healthy holiday glow.

For best results apply a small amount (equivalent to ten cent piece) of Stefan Face Primer or Stefan Glow Primer after moisturising with clean fingertips by massaging into the skin.
