7 Best Face Primers That Will Seriously Change How Your Makeup WearsAugust 19, 2019
Figuring out what kind of face makeup works best for your skin is hard enough — and when it comes to primer, it can often be even harder. Like foundations and CC creams, primers are built to meet your specific makeup needs and desires, so it’s important you find one that will stick by your side. Ahead, we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite primers that suit just about every skin type and tone — whether you get shiny or experience rough patches throughout your makeup-wearing day.
If you often feel that your skin is dull and blank, the La Base Hydra Glow Primer by Lancôme will truly change your foundation game. This soft-to-the-touch primer glides on seamlessly and adds the softest sheen to your makeup.
Slippery makeup doesn’t stand a chance if you use the 100% Pure Mattifying Primer. This really textured primer is perfect for keeping your foundation intact and excess oil at bay.
For a super soft glow, we recommend the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, which works excellently on skin that needs an equalizing finish. This stuff has the consistency of a cloud and makes you feel refreshed and ready for makeup in an instant.
If you’re searching for a primer to help combat dry and dull skin, look no further than the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Makeup Primer. This lightweight formula will do wonders in keeping your makeup looking dewy and fresh faced, without a rough patch in sight.
For a high definition primer that rivals your iPhone X Camera quality, the NYX HD Makeup Primer Base is spot on. This primer works to keep your makeup from slipping and sliding, but doesn’t make it feel too matte or cakey — and will help give you absolutely no camera flash back.
If you suffer from flakey skin throughout the year, the Maybelline Master Prime Hydrate + Smooth primer will become your beauty BFF. We love how well this works with just about any kind of face makeup, and how moisturized it makes your skin feel in just a few drops.
Calling all combo-to-oily skin babes! THIS is the primer you’ve been searching for. The Dermablend Insta-Grip Jelly Primer is as tacky and sticky as it sounds, in the absolute best way. It truly gives you the perfect skin surface to prep for foundation, and it helps keep your makeup in place for hours.
