That headline sound a bit weird? The "as you apply it" part? Well, you have to meet The Body Shop international makeup artist Chase Aston to understand. The man, who has worked with Kate Winslet, Naomi Campbell and a host of other famous beauties, is a whiz at speedy makeup application, always looking for a time-saving trick. And this quick complexion-perfection mattifying move meets the criteria.

Here, Chase uses a brush to mix The Body Shop's new Extra Virgin Minerals loose powder foundation and matte primer practically as he applies it to skin. It even wipes out the need for concealer, says Chase.

Would you try this trick? Have you tried it with any other primer + loose powder? Or would you just buy a tinted primer?
