5 must-buy beauty primers to keep that glow all-day long

Glowing skin, here we come.

Have you been using the right primer? The magic behind having a great primer is blurring those uneven textures, fine lines, obscuring the appearance of pores, or even hydrating irritated skin. If you thought you could skip the primer, and jump straight into your usual morning makeup routine, then you might be missing out on a gorgeous treat for your skin. Primers are like having the right canvas to paint. It simply keeps your skin silky-smooth for a more flawless foundation application to blend it all up. Once you find the right one, you can kiss Instagram filters goodbye.

So, whether you are aiming to give your skin that extra glow or need to control oily-prone skin, applying primer could be the heart of your makeup routine. If you are having trouble finding the right one, we’ve made it easier for you by rounding up all the best primers in Bangkok that are really worth your time. Go ahead, beat that humidity and stand tall with confidence.

If shine is not really your thing, this primer has got your back. Rihanna made sure the primer was soft and hydrating enough whilst it actually keeps hold of your makeup. This is not just a basic mattifying primer, but it also hides pores, soaks up the oil, and refines skin texture. Simply apply on your chin or wherever you find super-oily, and expect your foundation to last all day long with an instant retouch effect. Extremely lightweight and extremely smooth.
