This week on #InStyleVIP we have teamed up with LAURA MERCIER to offer 3 readers a full size Foundation Primer, one of Laura’s 2014 InStyle Best Beauty Buys (RRP £29).

Just as a painter primes a canvas, Foundation Primer – the original – was created by Laura Mercier in 1996 to prime the skin. It is a lightweight creamy gel meant to be used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. This colourless gel leaves makeup looking fresh and colour-true the entire day. Vitamin A, C and E act as antioxidants that protect the skin from harmful, aging effects of the environment.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is follow @instyle_uk on twitter and retweet the #InStyleVIP tweet. The competition ends at midnight on 7th March 2014 and winners will be picked at random. UK addresses only.
