For serious combo-skinned makeup grip, the new Dermablend Insta-Grip Jelly Makeup Primer will actually forever change the way your makeup wears. The consistency of this primer is jelly like, which creates the ultimate sticky base for makeup, locking in product and making it budge-free for hours. Out of all primers, this stuff is seriously the answer to every combo-skinned prayer.
This smooth-to-the-touch mattifying primer by Korres is heaven for a lightweight prep finish. It glides on seamlessly during application and sits nicely underneath any tinted moisturizer or foundation, allowing your makeup to have a dewy finish without an oily appearance.
A favorite among beauty bloggers and vloggers alike, the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer is seriously that good. It’s unbelievably refreshing, lightweight and great for sensitive skin and definitely worth the hype.
The Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner is the primer that won’t just sit under your makeup — it actually works to tighten pores and improve your combo skin complexion. It helps to zap excess sebum and leaves your skin feeling fresh and ready for makeup.
Maybelline Master Prime comes in a variety of types and colors, but the OG hydrate + smooth version works excellently for combo skin. The Master Prime is also a great drugstore dupe of some of the higher end primers you’ll find.
