You don’t have to spend a fortune to look a million dollars this Winter. Makeup Artist Karla Powell picks the loveliest, trustiest base products to keep your skin looking fresh this January.

Pout Prime Smoothing Primer

Any girl who is lipstick obsessed (that’s most of us right?) will know the struggles that come with how to keep your lipstick on all day long. By investing Pout Prime Smoothing Primer, £3.00 your money can buy is the best way to not only stop your lipstick bleeding but to get the most out of your lipstick! The refining and hydrating formula smoothes your lips and leaves them perfectly ready for any lipstick or gloss.

Skin Define Hydro Primer

The cold, harsh winter weather can damage our sensitive faces. If you want to ensure your complexion stays hydrated, you can try switching to Skin Define Hydro Primer, £5.00 for dry skin. Hydro Primer hydrates your pre-makeup skin while sealing in your skin’s natural moisture.

Pro-Base Prime & Conceal Correcting Cream-Yellow

The skin under your eyes gives everything away: ageing, dehydration, not enough sleep. Sadly, some are more genetically disposed to dark circles than others, but a well-concealed under-eye lifts and brightens your whole face. Yellow concealers work wonders at muting out any redness, though if you're under eyes tend to have a slight purple or blue tint, Pro-Base Prime & Conceal Correcting Cream in Yellow, £2.00 would be your best bet as the warm hue does double-duty to cancel out the red while warming up cool undertones.
