Our fave new primer is a €5 balm from Penneys

Penneys have a diverse range of primers to use before applying your makeup and they can solve any pesky skin issue.

Whether you have oily or dry, flaky or red skin Penneys have a (cheap as chips) primer to fix the problem. We are always saying how important it is to prepare and prime your skin before applying your makeup. Good skin care is the only way to achieve flawless, airbrushed looking makeup. Fail to prepare the skin and prepare for a skin-fail!

Insta Girl Face Perfecting Prime and Anti-shine Balm €5 is our favourite. This is for skin prone to oiliness and shine. What's special about this one is that it can be worn under or above makeup. You can use it as you would a powder and apply it to the t-zone throughout the day. It will control shine but leave a natural finish on your foundation. Unlike powder that can begin to look cakey after a few applications.


The Flash Photo Powder €4 is a green/blue colour, it promises to give you that 'au naturel' lighting look in photos. This is pretty groundbreaking- a product that is going to prevent ghost face syndrome in pictures. We love it already.

The Insta Girl Perfecting Stick €5 prevents shine and minimises pores. It's a good alternative to Benefit's Porefessional. There is also a matte lip plumping gloss. If you love a matte finish to your lipstick but want full, pouty lips at the same time this will do the job. It's like a plumping lipgloss with a matte finish. Anything is possible these days right?
