Primers are summer’s secret weapon. Not only do they mattify sweaty skin, even your skin tone and “blur” wrinkles, but they keep your make-up from sliding off on to your computer keyboard by teatime. The best ones moisturise and give a gentle glow or tint too, so you can wear them without foundation on the rare relaxed days, when you care a little less.
