Primer is a miracle product that deserves a top spot in your vanity. The most underrated of them all, the right primer can do wonders in not just holding your makeup together all day, but also making your skin glow from within. The perfect time to use a primer is just after your CTM routine and before you begin with your makeup.

Here’s the best part… A primer is good news for oily-skinned beauties. If the oiliness is melting your makeup a few hours into application, then here’s a gentle reminder for you to start using a primer as the last step in your skincare routine.

Here’s how a primer can take your look from drab to fab.

What’s the downside of makeup? Meltdowns, thanks to oily skin. The oiliness comes in the way of you and your on-fleek makeup game. But do you know that there’s a product that can save you from embarrassing makeup situations? Yes, we are talking about primer. The Lakmé Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer helps lock your makeup for a longer period of time.

Once you finish cleansing-toning-moisturising, give your skin a minute or two to absorb the moisturiser. Doing so will not only hydrate your skin, but also make it soft and supple. Then, reach for this primer, squeeze out a pea-sized amount on the back of your hand and use your fingertips to apply it evenly on your face and neck. Make sure to focus on the area around your eyes. You don’t want the concealer to look cakey. Wait for a minute before you start with your makeup. You’ll notice how your skin glows under layers of makeup.

If you have oily skin, then you’ve probably noticed how your pores become even more visible after applying foundation. And, it only looks worse under bright sunlight. That’s when the Lakmé Under Cover Gel Primer comes to your rescue. The best part about this primer is its ability to reduce the appearance of pores. Whether you’re stepping out to run errands or decking up for a glamorous evening do, a primer can help you achieve spotless, glowing skin.

And that’s not all! The smooth texture of this gel primer will also make your makeup products glide on like butter. You don’t have to worry about bumps or rough skin because the primer has already done its job!

Oily skin can make your face look shiny and greasy. And it’s definitely not the kind of glow you’d want to flaunt. But, fret not! The answer to all your oily skin woes is primer. The Lakmé Under Cover Gel Primer is infused with the goodness of vitamin E and has oil-absorbing properties. Applying this on your face after moisturising can help control the natural oils by filling in your pores and creating a barrier between your skin and the foundation. This, in turn, helps keep oily skin woes such as breakouts and acne at bay.

So go ahead and party all night without worrying about your makeup melting.
