Our Silk Foundation Primer has been nicknamed ‘Botox in a bottle’ by our customers. Of course it doesn’t really contain any botox - but it does make your skin feel amazing!
Your foundation glides effortlessly on top and it helps your make-up last all day.
Foundation is hard to apply and blend well when the skin is dry or in poor condition, but with this primer your skin will feel and look amazing. Some people even just wear Silk foundation Primer on its own.
Our best seller three years running! Feel the magic!
Why you need a great primer
With modern air conditioners and central heating, our skin tends to dry out more than usual. Primers are the answer to locking in moisture and wearing effective make-up all day long, but other products out there don't quite cut it.
What to look for in an exceptional primer
Our primer really will leave you with silky soft skin. Here's why our silk foundation primer works so well...
How to apply silk foundation primer
Here are our top tips for effectively applying your primer, and making the most use of each bottle.
What do our customers say?
We love hearing from you, our customers. With our new website, some of them are posting their thoughts and reviews of our products to help you decide if Jane Fardon Cosmetics are for you.
Word on the street is that men love this product too and have not just borrowed their partners', but have even bought their own!
(Shhhh, we don’t want to embarrass them)
In our Grandmothers' day, make-up was ‘set’ by applying a dusting of powder over the face when you had finished. The problem with this is that too much powder on the face can be aging, as it tends to collect or sit in any creases or lines and dry the skin.
With modern air conditioning and central heating our skin tends to dry out more than our Grandmothers’ did. Primers are great products for our modern living as they lock in the moisture of the skin.
Because primers are a relatively new product and they have become very popular very quickly, the products that truly work have become very expensive. You also get a lot of cheap primers that don’t really do the job. Ours, like all our products, is made from the very best ingredients but sold at a very reasonable price.
Most equivalent products are twice the price! And more - one bottle lasts a long time as you only need a small amount. It's fantastic quality at a fantastic price.
A good quality primer fills the fine lines, smoothes the surface texture of the skin, locks in moisture and fixes the make-up that is applied over it. It shouldn't leave your skin feeling greasy or looking shiny.
Do the ‘back of the hand' test - apply a small amount of primer to the back of one hand and then compare it to the other, non-primer hand. Amazing isn’t it?
Clean and moisturise your face as normal, and then apply a pea sized amount of Silk Foundation Primer all over the face. It can be used on the lips to keep them soft and is light enough to go over the eye area.
If you are in a hurry or you like a tinted foundation, a great tip with primer is to mix it with a bit of your foundation and apply it as one. It is so quick and easy to do and gives a lovely natural finish.
However, if you have very oily skin you may prefer to use a translucent finishing powder over your make-up, as it’s great way to get rid of any unwanted shine.

This is the best primer I have ever used. I have been using it daily for 5 years, it gives an excellent make up base or can be used on its own. Each bottle lasts around 4 months so it is really good value too.
Customer service is also excellent, no quibble when I had a bottle that didn't work, replacement bottle by return post

The primer is easy to apply and creates a silky smooth base for applying foundation onto.

I found this primer by accident but it is the best thing I have ever used under makeup. I need coverage because I have a lot of thread veins. I also have hyper sensitive very dry skin and at 50+ also wrinkles and lines sadly so if I am too heavy handed it really does look ageing. This primer allows my foundation to float on my skin. The first time I tried it I was astonished that I put it on in the morning and was able to go out for the evening without having to start my makeup again as usual. My dry skin normally "drinks" my base despite trying lots of other moisturising primers but now it stays put. THANK YOU!

I've been wearing this primer for two years now and it's revolutionised how I wear make up. I've found nothing else like it on the high street that provides such a smooth and non greasy base. It also seems to lock in moisture and I haven't suffered from dry skin on my face since using this primer.

I have not been in the habit of using primer but I have found this product superb. It's very smooth on the skin and you only need to use a little bit at a time. The price is also very reasonable.
