When the temperature rises the big question for many women is whether to go natural and stay away from make-up or put it on with the chance of it all slipping off by midday. One way to guarantee that your make-up does stay on is to use a primer.
Primers not only fix your make-up but have many other benefits as well. For instance they can even skin tone, reduce pores, illuminate skin and stop shine.
If you are looking for your next best primer then here are ten of them:
