Best Primers for your Skin Type
Foundation not lasting all day? Ain’t nobody got time fo’ that. We’ve found the best primers for your skin type to make sure your makeup goes from day to play, no worries.
What is primer?
In a phrase: it preps your skin for the next step, quite literally priming it for makeup. It’s a step people quite frequently skip (less makeup = more time in bed), but it really does make a difference when it comes to the longevity of your makeup. We’ll defs avoid touch-ups if we can, so it’s a must-have step in our morning routine.
The best primers are used after moisturising and before putting on your base (whether it’s BB/CC cream or a foundation). They simply even out your skin texture ensuring your makeup applies more smoothly and lasts longer.
It comes in various textures, but most commonly you’ll find liquid, gel, cream and powder.
Best Primers For Oily Skin
If your skin tends to err on the side of oily with excess sebum, it’s gonna be a constant battle making sure your makeup lasts all day. Give your products a lil helping hand by picking a primer that has the magic phrase “oil-controlling” in its title. We love Benefit’s Pore-Fessional as its sheer colour works across most skintones and it’s perf’ for keeping that sebum at bay.
