Achieving A Smooth Complexion…

Smoothing anti-ageing primers and concealers that offer flawless and radiant skin are not always the easiest to find.

But there are a few ingredients you can be aware of to measure the effectiveness of your concealer and primer.

First off the ingredients each and every primer/concealer you own should include.

1. Glycerin

Set to improve the skin’s smoothness and moisture content this natural emollient has a great cooling effect on skin and is commonly found in facial moisturises, body lotions, sunscreen, makeup, hair care and soap. 

2. Vitamin E

An antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. This vitamin wonder is the best to neutralise free radicals, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Magnesium

A specific ingredient found in mineral makeup and well known for its matte finish appearance this great ingredient has strong absorbent properties and some disinfecting properties.

Producing a continuous film on the skin as well as increasing coverage this is one great ingredient.

4. Lastly your primer and/or concealer should contain light reflecting pigments.


Now to the benefits you should be seeing from your concealer and primer.

1. Keep blemishes, dark circles and skin discolourations concealed.

2. Actively treat blemishes, dark circles and skin discolourations.

3. Keep eye shadows crease-proof and longer lasting.

So if you are finding that those dark circles, spider veins and skin discolourations are not staying covered or that your shadows aren’t lasting the length of the day you may need to try an advanced pigment and light reflective formula such as our newest Icon Sealer Supreme Eye Smoothing Primer.
