Our Five Favorite Face Primers
Posted on September 16 2019
Primers don't get enough credit! Working behind the scenes, primers provide a smooth, even base for your foundation so your skin looks flawless from the first dab of the beauty blender. While essential for those struggling with enlarged pores or scarring, the perfect primer takes anyone's look to the next level. An artist wouldn't paint a masterpiece on a bare canvas, so why should you?
Try our five favorite primers to find your key to silky skin:
This primer is proof that you don't need to break the bank for a stunning complexion. It has a velvety texture that minimizes pores without any oily residue. Though white out of the tube, there's no need to worry about it washing you out. Make sure your skin is well-moisturized before applying to avoid uneven patches. For a daily, budget-friendly face primer, Angel Veil can't be beat!
For those looking for a primer that goes above and beyond, look no further than this tube from Tarte. Primer? Check. Sunscreen? Check. BB cream? Check! This primer can be worn under makeup or on its own, for those days you're feeling (almost) au naturel. Even better, the formula is 100% vegan, trading in animal products for real diamond powder, so you can feel both glam and guilt-free!
This primer is as close to real-life airbrushing as a girl can get. A favorite of it-girls and professionals alike, this clear, dewy gel will get your skin camera ready, and keep it looking that way all day long! Still not sold? Smashbox says it doubles as a hair cream on those days you need some extra help fighting frizz.
Give your skin a little love with this hydrating, restorative primer from Bobbi Brown. It's infused with vitamins to repair and nourish skin; use it to combat dryness in the winter and sun damage in the summer. This primer isn't just another layer on your face—it's actively keeping your skin gorgeous and healthy, with or without makeup! Plus, it smells really nice.
Okay girls, this is it: the last word in face primers. With a name (and price tag!) like that, you know this product means business. If you want skin that's as soft as cashmere and radiant from within, Dior's got you covered. Pores, wrinkles, spots—they don't stand a chance. No wonder celebrity makeup artist Allan Avendaño calls it "the primer of all primers."
Primers help you put your best face forward. There's nothing like smooth skin and even makeup application to boost your confidence and elevate your look! Looking for more ways to take your beauty game to the next level? Try these luxurious mink lashes—you won't regret it!.
