Primers used to be one-size-fits-all, silicone-based, transparent veils that helped create a buffer between your skin and makeup so your face looked flawless. They got the job done, but in truth they weren’t always that targeted to specific skin types or concerns like large pores, redness or fine lines. Now you can customize your primer to target your concern and suit your skin type.
Oily skin types tend to see their morning makeup slide by the time they clock their first coffee break. Oil-absorbing formulas will mop up excess oil before it disrupts your foundation. If you’re afraid of breakouts, try a primer mist. It’s super lightweight, keeps your makeup in place and it won’t clog pores.
