Armani Prima: How to Achieve Flawless Makeup & Beautiful Skin

We all have our favorite skincare products, the ones we automatically go to in the morning, evening, or when we’re having a skin catastrophe and need reinforcements.

But, have you ever struggled applying makeup over the skincare you wear in the day, regardless of how much time you allow before application? Maybe you find that at points in the month where your skin tone is changeable, suddenly foundation doesn’t sit well over your day crèmes.

I was invited by Harrods to visit the store and experience the new Armani Prima range of skincare. I’m a sucker for pots, potions and lotions – so I duly accepted.

Armani Prive Luxury Skincare to wear with Makeup review

Armani Prima is possibly the first ever line of skincare that has been specifically designed to work alongside makeup, to address skin issues and work to resolve them, whilst actively helping to keep your makeup looking flawless throughout the day.

"I have combination skin that can really swing between dry and oily in the T-zone, I also am quite dry under my eyes, resulting in fine lines through my under-eye concealer."

After an introduction to the new product line, my makeup was removed (not a pretty sight, and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as my face was bare it was like a school reunion). My skin was then analysed and the most suitable products were applied.

As such, I was recommended the Eye & Lip Perfector, Glow-On Moisturizing Balm, Day Long Skin Perfector Troubles Zones Serum & Refreshing Makeup Fix spray.

"My makeup was generally less cakey, pores were smoothed and I didn’t feel oily yet dehydrated."

All of the items in the range can be used together, so if you have enlarged pores and oily cheeks, with dry lips and under-eyes for example, you could use the Trouble Zones (oil control) serum with the lip & eye perfector.

Makeup was applied after the various crèmes had sunk-in a little and I was indeed impressed at the flawless look of my skin and makeup in general.

Update:

It is now May 2017 and I am still using the Eye & Lip Perfector, Serum, Moisture Balm & Makeup Fix spray.

The Eye & Lip Perfector is really effective at hydrating and plumping both areas. The Moisture Balm I can only use at times when my skin is dry, as I find it to be very quenching but it leaves a residue that can make me overly oily.

The Fix Spray is very good at setting makeup and it’s the best Fix Spray product I know of that can add hydration and freshness at the same time.
