Foundation Primer

What Does a Foundation Primer Do?

A makeup primer is an extremely light product in either a gel, powder, or cream. Primers are applied before a concealer or foundation. Not only do they prep your skin and provide a sleek makeup base for an all-day hold, but face primers can also fight shine, smooth out fine lines and pores, and color correct rosacea or acne prone skin. It all depends on your personal needs and preference. Maybe you’re a diehard makeup user who needs 24-hour coverage (like with the Dermablend Jelly Primer). Maybe you’re a “lip gloss and go” sort of person who prefers UVA/UVB protection and a smoothed complexion (try the Coola Daydream Mineral Primer). Whichever you choose, these face primers are easy to use and provide the results you need.

Blurring Primers

Perfect for uneven or acne-prone skin, these blurring primers create a smooth canvas for your concealer and foundation. With the Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer provides long-lasting moisture and extreme radiance with its natural ingredients. We believe that one of the best primers for pores is the Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer, thanks to their use of salicylic acid to clear skin. Non-comedogenic ingredients like shea butter deeply hydrate, and willow bark extract keeps shine under control. All skin types and tones will benefit from using this Pixi primer regularly. You finish your makeup and can still see blackheads and pores beneath. We’ve all been there. But you can change all of that with the Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer, a dramatic skin-blurring primer that stands up to sweat and humidity for up to 8 hours.

Best Primers for Dry Skin

For complexions that need a bit more moisture, reach for the best-selling bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer. No more applying makeup to flaky skin, and no more uneven coverage! This is the best hydrating primer to give your complexion a boost with natural botanicals, and keeps your skin deeply moisturized all day. If it’s dewy skin you’re looking for it’s right at your fingertips. With just a couple drops of the Smashbox Primer Oil, you’ll find the perfect blend of “dry oils” like argan and jojoba. This super light coverage provides youthful radiance and supple skin within just one month of use. Feel free to use it on cuticles, hair, or anywhere else that needs a boost of hydration.

Best Primers for Oily Skin

Just like skin tones, no two primers are the same. Finding a primer for oily skin can be frustrating...until now. With the Jane Iredale Smooth Affair For Oily Skin, you’ll get the matte finish you’ve always wanted. Pores disappear, blemishes heal, skin brightens, and the formula actually matches to your complexion! The Stila One Step Correct does it all: It zaps redness, covers pimples, infuses skin with vibrance, and controls oil all day long. This is something you have to try to believe.

Mattifying Primers

The increasing popularity of the Peter Thomas Roth Mattifying Gel isn’t a coincidence: What this Peter Thomas Roth primer does is unbelievable. Developed as a unisex formula, it absorbs oil and provides an invisible matte finish that lasts all day. Looking for a quick makeup primer spray that supercharges skin and battles oil production? Reach for the Smashbox Primer Water. Maybe you’re trying to control outbreaks and need to control sebum production. With the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel, you get professional-level skin care with a perfectly smooth canvas.

Correcting Primer

If you’ve got red skin tone, a color correcting primer is ideal for covering acne spots or conditions like rosacea. For regular makeup users, try the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer to Reduce Redness. The perfect color of this Smashbox green primer actually cancels out redness completely, allowing an even, imperceptible base. For all-over coverage, try the Mirenesse Tone Correcting Primer. The anti-aging skin care found within boosts collagen production, and the three pastel colors fight redness, dark circles, and brightens your complexion.

Under-Eye Primers

Speaking of dark circles, brightening the under eye area will knock years off of your image. The cooling sensation of the Pixi Undercover Crayon is a go-to for people who need to erase signs of fatigue. It’s an instant eye-lift! The Smashbox Under Eye Primer is never cakey, and you won’t catch it slipping into fine lines. Hydrate and brighten the ‘windows to your soul’ with caffeine, peptides, and light diffusers.

BB and CC Creams

If you’re looking for an even, barely-there glow, the Stila One Step Illuminate is the one step you can’t miss out on. Smooth fine lines, soften your complexion, and give yourself a radiant glow-from-within. Youngblood Cosmetics is an organic makeup brand that provides effortless beauty in seconds. Try the Youngblood Mineral Primer for a sheer CC cream that minimizes pores and keeps shine at bay. When you use the St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Tinted Moisturiser (either alone or under your favorite concealer), you’ll build enviable color, even in the darkest months of the year. Zero self-tan smell, streak-free, and a natural glow? What could be better?
