It’s the time of year when everyone likes to get dressed in their finery and barely a minute goes by when someone isn’ getting their phone out to take another photo. That’s all well and good, but if you’ve spent the morning cooking a huge Christmas dinner (and have partaken of a Baileys or two!) you might not be looking your best. There are, however, several products which will give you a great base for your make up, ensuring that it doesn’t slide off in the steam of the kitchen, and here’s five of our faves:

Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm

If your complexions feels a little dull during the winter months, this illuminating balm from Elemis will give you back some much-needed radiance. It can be applied daily as a light moisturiser and will add instant illumination to your skin, perfect for making you look good when you’ve been slaving over pigs-in-blankets!

Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier

If your skin has a tendency towards oiliness then it’s likely that your make-up will have melted off well before it’s time for mince pies. This mattifying lotion from Dermalogica not only clears breakouts and reduces congestion in your skin, it also controls shine, wicking away sebum and preventing more from being produced. This will allow you to apply a flawless make-up base and avoid the dreaded flash-glare when the cameras come out.

Dermalogica UltraCalming Redness Relief Primer

Redness is another major issue where we can feel let down by our foundation, so opting for a redness-reducing primer could really help. This one from Dermalogica’s UltraCalming range is a broad-spectrum primer for sensitive skin which reduced redness and inflammation, evening-out the skin tone and soothing the skin from within. It’s a translucent preparation which is perfect as a pre-make up base.

Decleor Velvet Mattifying Fluid

Another mattifying lotion from Decleor, this fluid will purify and re-balance the skin, reducing excess sebum and giving a matte effect to the complexion. Unlike other mattifiers, it doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight or uncomfortable and adds a layer of moisture which helps the skin to moderate it’s own oil production in the future.

Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer

This primer from Dermalogica is a multi-tasking product which is suitable for all skin types, particularly dry and dehydrated skin. It gives the skin a wash of moisture and a blurring effect which helps the skin to look even and clear, which means that even if your make up fails you when the flashes go off, this primer has got your back!
