Boosting Your Skin’s Radiance with Primer

Nov 17, 2015

Does your skin suffer from the winter blahs?  To give your skin’s brightness a boost, switch primers.

In the warmer months, I need to keep the oil at bay with NARS Pro Prime.  For the winter, I traded it in for Laura Mercier’s Radiance Primer.  It gives my skin a lit-from-within glow.  When I’m exhausted, my skin looks well-rested and hydrated.  Even after I apply powder. 

To see the results, several beauty bloggers have before-and-afters to show you the brightening effects.  It’s a light radiance, but enough to make a difference.

Need a drugstore dupe?  The Interwebs recommend Revlon Skinlights in Peach or L’Oreal Magic Lumi.

    I have the radiance primer from Laura but only used it for evening. Do you think it’s ok for office wear?

    Primer is an absolute must for me – in all temperatures and seasons! In fact, I find that sometimes wearing primer alone is enough to help keep shine at bay, even if I don’t wear anything else.

    After experimenting with a few samples from Sephora, I just purchased the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer, and it’s really helping my extremely dry skin look refreshed and dewy!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good nighttime moisturizer to use in the winter? Preferably under $30 please. Thanks!
