I'm 44 this year and although I can't afford to spend lots of money on beauty products, and I do like to have a beauty routine and I wear make up everyday.
I have some fine lines around the eyes and forehead area and have just Google the best ways to conceal them. It repeatedly came up with articles about primers.
Does anyone use them and are they worth it. I would spend money on a decent primer if I thought it would help?
Any recommendations would be great too!

Hi - I love primers, they seem to make a difference to how long my foundation lasts as I have quite oily skin.

I would say get recommendations and go and get a few samples to try first as everyone skin is different.

I've tried a lot of primers over the years and boots airbrush away has really surprised me in how good it is. I bought the full size normal one but also got a sample of the radiance one and it's amazing. They are both excellent though, get a sample of these if you can.
