Five Primers For Achieving A Winter Glow

I'm partial to a good primer, especially in the winter months when my skin is dry and lack-lustre. Whenever I see something aimed at glow or radiance I immediately add it to my basket so naturally, I've accumulated quite a few over the years. I know a lot of people try to achieve a beautiful dewy finish to combat the dehydration at this time of year so today I'm sharing my favourite picks for achieving luminous, glowing skin. 
five primers for achieving a winter glow
L'Oreal Infallible Luminizing Primer | I discovered this earlier this year and it was the only primer I used for two months straight! Not only is it super affordable but it's also amazing at giving a glowing finish without being too glittery. It has a beautiful pearlescent sheen and paired with a dewy foundation it creates the perfect glowing base! 

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base | This is my favourite pick for when my skin is looking a bit dry and dull and I don't want anything with a shimmer. It has a rich buttery texture that creates a gorgeous layer on the skin that helps your foundation look much more radiant and skin-like. A little goes a really long way and it makes a great moisturiser for those with a more oily skin!

MAC Strobe Cream | This probably isn't for someone with a lot of blemishes or texture but if you want a serious in your face glow, this is the one for you. It's very similar to the L'Oreal one but it's slightly more silver based and has a slightly thinner formula. I love using this all over my face for a real boost under my foundation but it also looks beautiful dabbed on the high points of the face for a 'dewy but not sweaty' glow.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter | I can't believe how long it took me to try this primer. It's one of those products you see in everyone's collection but never buy and then when you finally do you wonder how you ever lived without it! This is the more champagne/golden pick out of the bunch and it leaves the skin looking so fresh and radiant. I tend to mix this in with my light coverage bases as it gives that super healthy, polished skin without the need for highlighter! 

Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter | The final pick is this beauty which is the newest to my stash but is probably the one that I use the most. It's a 3 in 1 product which can be used in many different ways but my personal favourite is applied to the cheekbones, nose and cupids bow after using my IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream for that plump, almost wet look. I have the shade 1 which is a gorgeous vanilla-champagne colour - I'm obsessed!
