What the company says about this fabulous product.

‘MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Complexion products use innovative formulas to create a new generation of makeup which is both invisible on HD cameras and to the naked eye.  In the same manner as a skin care product, the HD Primer nourishes, moisturizes and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect.  It creates a protective layer on the skin allowing the foundation to glide on easily and to last longer.  Unlike standard skin care a cream, the HD Primer dries quickly, allowing make up to be applied immediately. The HD Primer comes in 6 colour-correcting shades and one transparent shade to correct skin imperfections.’

It is available in the following coloured pigments.  It is absorbed by the skin for an invisible correction.


0 Neutraladds natural luminosity to the complexion

4 Caramelcombats ashiness in medium to dark skin tones/warms golden tones
5 Blueadds radiance to fair skin/ reduces minor imperfections
6 Yellowlightens dark complexions

Now this is one of the products that my mother carries with her when she does bridal makeup.  She swears by it and says that the Make Up For Ever HD Micr operfecting Primer does exactly what it promises.  It goes on like silk and gives is a dewy, creamy look that brightens up the skin and prepares it for makeup.  It is not greasy but moisturizing and gets absorbed quickly into the skin.

The Main Ingredients are:


Argatensyl: Immediately smooths and enhances the skin’s surface.
Silica micro balls & Elastomer silicone: Give a soft finish to the skin.
D-Panthenol&Glycerin: Provide optimal skin hydration. (+60%)
Phycosaccharide: Creates a shield that protects from external aggression and brings stability to the makeup.
Most primers are silicon based and most women tend to break out when they use it.  This one is different as it seems to be and work like a moisturizer and foundation together.  It makes thecomplexion look a tad lighter by giving the skin the illusion of a lighter look.  It evens out the lines on your skin and feels very light.  If you have clear skin, you can even skip your foundation after using this. It leaves behind a semi-matte, natural finish and keeps the face looking fresh and bright.




I love the packaging. The bottle has a pump so no dipping into anything.  How to use depends on your skin type and needs.  With regular usage you will be able to figure out the apt amount.  I generally need just one squirt and I am set. 


To use you have to apply the HD Primer directly to your skin with your fingertips to activate blood circulation. The friction on the skin will help the primer penetrate faster.  You can also use a HD brush for a quick and hygienic application.  You can also use a HD sponge.  The shape allows the formula to reach the outer parts of the nose and the corner of the eyes more easily.

I love this product because it is so light when applied and really makes the face smooth and flawless like fresh canvas for the rest of the makeup.  

ETM Edit* Sounds really really good Christina. 🙂 I don’t usually use a primer cause I hate that artificial extra smooth and slippery feel of silicones on my skin. Though this also has them, this looks light and better. Nice review. BTW is your mom a makeup artiste? 😀
