… Luckily, it wasn’t 6 Geese A-Laying!😂🙈

But a deluxe miniature bottle of Monuskin Illuminating Primer!

Perfect for the Winter season! It is after all the season to shimmer, sparkle & shine!✨

This couldn’t have come at a better time as not only was I in need of a new primer, my skins been feeling  dull and in need of a radiance boost at this time of year. 🙌🏼

I’ve always thought of primer to be like a paint primer 🙈 you’d never paint a wall without priming it with a base coat first right?  Weirdly, it’s kinda the same with makeup. A primer helps to hold your foundation in place and creates a smooth base to build on top of, to give you a truly flawless finish, reducing the appearance of imperfections and giving you a long lasting glow 👌🏼

I’m always slightly hesitant on illuminating primers, however I’ve quickly learnt that it can be a girls best friend on a dull day. We all have them, days that you throw your hair in a messy bun, throw on your comfy clothes and try to get away with the most minimal makeup effort as possible… an illuminating primer and a nude gloss will be your best friend on these days, a girl should always have a bottle of this on stand by.

There are so many different ways that you can use an illuminating primer. Personally, I find that applying it to areas where I would apply highlighter (cheek bone, inner corners of my eye,  brow bone and cupids bow) rather than using it as an all over face primer, works best for me. Alternatively, you can apply a thin layer all over your face and leave it to settle for  minute before applying your foundation, or even mix some in with your foundation for a fresh dewy look.

A little goes a long way with this primer, so be careful not to apply too much as you’ll find that it sits too heavily on your skin and you’ll struggle to rub it in properly.

The #LFAdventCalendar contains a 25ml Deluxe Miniature, but you can get a full size bottle (50ml) for £29.95.
