Recently, I received a lot of questions about what primer I use on my skin. Primers are essential for smoothing out skin and leaving you with a beautiful blank slate to apply the rest of your makeup. There are so many primers to choose from, so I’ve compiled the 6 primers that I love disclosing the one that I use the most frequently.
Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++
This is my absolute favorite primer! I use it all the time, because it’s an anti-aging treatment, primer, and invisible SPF that immediately blurs and protects while combating the signs of aging.
smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
I love this primer too. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores, making it a great option to ready your skin for makeup. Make sure you don’t keep the same bottle for over 6 months though or it may kind of peel away from your skin upon application.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
To be 100% honest, there hasn’t been a product that Hourglass has released that I don’t absolutely love. They make amazing makeup. This primer offers SPF 15, but it also absorbs excess oils and minimizes the appearance of pores by evenly distributing light. All of Hourglass’s products use light and illumination to their advantage.
Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
I adore this primer the morning after a long night, because it is infused with coconut water, a probiotic-based ingredient, and skin revivers. Hangover is designed to give skin a dose of hydration, promote elasticity, and keep you looking fresh. This primer replenishes moisture, giving a dewy radiant finish alone and under makeup.
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
I am an absolute fanatic about Maybelline’s Baby Lips moisturizing lip balm so, of course, I had to try this Baby Skin primer. Guess what? I fell for it too. This primer is breathable, blurring, and mattifying on contact and the best part is, it’s less than $7.
MAC Prep + Primer Fix+
Okay so this is the #1 recommended primer by makeup artists, and it’s phenomenal. This primer works on every skin type and stay put and looks fresh all day long.
