I’m a big primer advocate! I have oily skin so primer is essential, but personally I think all skin types can benefit from primer. With the below primers, I’ll tell you which ones are suited for a particular look or particular skin type.
This is a great all-rounder primer suitable for all skin types. The Nivea Post Shave Balm works beautiful as a base for foundation, allowing your foundation to grip onto something, and also prolongs the wear of your makeup. The only thing that it doesn’t do is minimise pores, but that’s where the next primers come in. Click here for a full review of the Nivea Post Shave Balm.
Personally I find the Benefit Porefessional and the Innoxa Skin Perfect Pore Vanishing Cream do the same thing, they minimise pores amazingly well! I have oily skin and these two are my go to primers, as they keep the oils at bay, minimise pores and prolongs the wear of my foundation. These primers don’t work well under powder foundation. Here’s a detail comparisons of the two primers.
For dry skin gals, or if your skin is dull then this primer is for you. I find the Innoxa CC Cream is super hydrating, provides a beautiful lit from within effect and overall brightens my complexion. The downside is, it doesn’t prolong the wear of my makeup as I have oily skin so I can only wear this on days when I won’t be out an about for long.
No7. Beautifully Matte Primer
This is my go to primer for powder foundations such as the Tarte Amazonian Clay. This primer has an interesting texture, it’s quite dry yet works really well under powder foundations. Personally I don’t like this under liquid foundation as it doesn’t do anything special…
My new go to primer! Suitable for all skin types, even oily skin gals! With this primer my tip is apply your liquid foundation immediately, because if you wait it can be difficult to work with foundation on top of it. This primer is beautiful to create a glowy lit from within look and still keeps the oil at bay. Click here for a full review of the Becca Backlighting Priming Filter.
