These moisturisers work super hard for your skin

A true makeup artist worth his or her salt will tell you how much difference moisturising and priming can make to a certain look. While a primer boosts the skin with moisture, giving it an instant glow, primer minimises the pores, makes the skin smooth and makeup application a dream. Primers also make makeup last longer on face. But with the weather playing havoc, nobody has time for layers and layers of product till you even begin applying your makeup. You need something quick, easy going and effective. Enter our hero moisturisers double up as primers. These moisturisers, not only give your skin a healthy glow, they prep the skin perfectly for the makeup look. So if you’re in the market for a double duty moisturiser-cum-primer, ahead are some of our favourites.
