Gel makeup primers are a dream for people with combination skin — they’re lightweight, airy and do an excellent job creating a sticky base for foundation. They also prove to be a great match for anyone with acne-prone skin, as most are non-comedogenic and don’t block your pores. Ahead, we rounded up six of our favorite gel makeup primers that will become your new favorite bases.
Makeup ASMR lovers, this one's for you. Its translucent, bouncy consistency makes it fun to play with by itself or on your face. It literally feels like *Jell-O* and will make your skin look plump, sticky and ready for makeup in no time.
This gel lotion by IT Cosmetics is a cloud-like moisturizer that sits beautifully under a tinted moisturizer or foundation of any texture. A little of it goes a long way, and it will leave your skin feeling refreshed, plumped and hydrated.
This primer that’s infused with cannabis seed extract gives your makeup an all-day hold. It takes about one minute to set and is formulated with aloe water, cherry blossom, hyaluronic acid and B vitamins.
