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.
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.

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.

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.
