Pure Canvas Primer Collection has just launched by the creator of the primer category itself – Laura Mercier. I know you might be as excited as I am – Laura Mercier primers are not new to me – I have used it for years. The great thing which always I could relate to was the sub-category or you can see how Laura Mercier created few products (for consumers, although they were available for professional use before) under the name of primer – of course to make something available for different types of skin’s needs and definitely, we can not thank her enough for it, and that was in 1996. I have personally used the illuminating primer and the hydrating primer for a very long time. So trying the newly launched primers from the brand which is a pioneer of flawless face and creator of primer category – it was definitely a top on my list to do.

To Use: ‘Use as an eyeliner by applying colour to your lash line, or as a shadow and swipe onto lids. To achieve the classic smoky eye, apply the colour in a gradient, with the darkest colour at the lash line. To achieve an updated, more wearable smoky eye, apply the darkest colour in the crease and leave the center of the eyelids lighter. Blend well with a brush or fingers.’
