The Hourglass Ambient Light Primer Has Arrived And You’re Going to Love it

Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer

I wouldn’t say I’m particularly loyal to certain products when it comes to makeup, and the contents of my beauty bag is forever changing. But there are a three things I must always have close to hand: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation, Bobbi Brown Serum Corrector and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. The trio of complexion enhancers create the illusion of clear and luminous skin – even if I’m covered in spots or feel completely exhausted.

And now I can add another step to this glow-getting routine, because Hourglass have just launched three Ambient Light Correcting Primers. As with their iconic finishing powders, the primers act as “a filter to neutralize, brighten and soften light, while blurring imperfections”.


The oil-free formula feels really comfortable on the skin, and creates such a natural glow that on good-skin days I would happily skip foundation altogether and just wear a primer. I’ve always favoured the warming Dim Light finishing powder, but when it comes to the primers it’s the softening, sheer pink Mood Light that has stolen my heart. The primer collection also features Dim and Luminous Light though, if those are more your thing.

My current makeup routine now starts with Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer in Mood, and is followed by Vitalumiere foundation, Bobbi Brown’s Correct and Conceal products, and the Hourglass Dim Light Finishing Powder. So I’m always glowing from the outside, even if I feel grumpy on the inside!

Are you also a big fan of the Hourglass Ambient Light products? Will you be lining up to purchase the new primers? They launch in the UK on May 3rd at Space NK, FYI…
