Picking out a brand-new drugstore primer is nowhere near as glamorous (or easy) as scouting out a new shade of lipstick or mascara. The process involves a ton of internet research — it’s more like picking out a new skin care product. When you walk into your local drugstore or end up shopping on site, you want to look for a quality primer that’s formulated to work with your skin. Whether that means it’ll keep your skin hydrated, keep your foundation from melting off your face or keep your breakouts at bay — there’s one with your name on it.
Ahead, discover the perfect drugstore primer for your skin type:
If you have dry skin, the thought of slathering on foundation may sound totally unappealing to you. Hydra Touch Primer is a product NYX lovers swear by to refresh and hydrate skin prior to makeup application.
For those looking for all the oil control in the world, try this matte formula that’ll smooth, blur and prep your skin for makeup. This one’s ideal if you want to control shine and blur pores and fine lines.
