The Perfect Prep & Prime Products


There doesn't always have to be a reason why you want your makeup to apply better or last longer - you just do. However, let's be real, who really has the time or patience to spend ages piling layer upon layer of products that supposedly make your makeup 'last all day'? Just me? Maybe I'm just a little too lazy when it comes to getting ready in the mornings; I just find that some of these products that claim to 'lock' your makeup in place just seem to 'lock' up and steal your money.

That being said, there are multiple exceptions. The sort of products that when I can be bothered to apply, I know will do as it claims.
If that's the sort of thing you're on the hunt for then look no further.




Mario Badescu Facial Sprays - I know, I know, you're sick of hearing about these by now but here me out, this is the all time perfect setting spray. It moisturises, sets and can we just talk about how great it smells?

Benefit Primers and setting gel - I enjoy using both the 'porefessional' and the 'that gal' primer, they are fully worthy of all the hype. As for the setting gel? Your brows won't move an inch.

Nivea lip balms - Nivea know their stuff when it comes to skincare but with their lip balms they've really nailed it. I especially enjoy using their watermelon shine lip balm which provides long lasting hydration and you guessed it, a watermelon fragrance!

Thankyou for reading, what are your favourite 'prep & prime' products?

  1. I love Nivea lip balms - I have been using them for as long as I can remember and they have never let me down! I use the Clinique city block sunscreen. It works great as a primer, so it's a double win. :D

  2. Great post! The only setting spray I used was the L'Oreal Infallible Setting Spray and even thought I liked it I am always on the look for new ones.

  4. I'm a huge fan of Nivea lip balms - such a simple little product but definitely one of my must haves!! I've been thinking about trying out facial sprays for a while now but there's just so many different options I haven't been able to figure out where to start. I'll definitely need to get my hands on these Mario Badescu ones!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
