Like good, supporting underwear worn beneath your clothes, these pre-makeup primers and balms are must-haves for a flawless face

Love makeup? Although colours, pigments, glitter and all that razzle dazzle does get the pulse racing, a real aficionado understands that sometimes it's the undercover products that make the look. From coloured primers that give skin an otheworldly glow, to clear products that hold and fix your eye and lip makeup, here are some new MVPs to try.

THE EYE AND LIP PRIMER
Make Up For Ever Step 1 Eye & Lip Primer, $39
Use this on your lids and your lips to help makeup last up to 24 hours. This prepares the skin, enhnaces the colour intensity and traps pigment for long-lasting wear. But on a serious note, you shouldn't be leaving makeup on that long!
