Recommended Makeup Primers

Hello again everyone, Hope your all having a lovely Tuesday, I have decided to do a blog post all about makeup primers as I think they are essential in any makeup as they are a base for your makeup before any application so the makeup goes on nice & flawless looking. There are so many different makeup primer’s available budgeting from high end to affordable prices in local pharmacies nationwide.

Basic Primers

Most of us are quite familiar with silicone based primers which really help the foundation apply flawlessly and also cover large pores which I find silicone based primers myself quite good as I would use them a lot prior to my makeup application, as a makeup artist I have tried so many on the market and as most makeup artists would say ( Smashbox Photo Finish Primer ) is one if the favorite primers out on the market. A good budget buy brand I would also recommend would be ( Maybelline Pore Eraser ) .

Mattifying Primers

Ok so if you have oily skin or t-zone area is oily and you just cant find that primer that will last or you have to put on powder throughout the day to get rid of excess oils then I would suggest trying out one of these primers which will really help towards the oiliness and soak up the excess oils, you can wear primers on there own or as a base for your foundation. One primer which I have found excellent for this is ( NYX Shine Killer primer )  or if you are looking for more of a high end primer then try ( Hourglass veil mineral primer ) .

Extra Glow

If you are looking for that extra bit of glow to the skin or you feel that your skin is looking dull then these radiance will help that gorgeous glow to your skin you can also wear these on there own or as a base prior to makeup. The first one I suggest is a drugstore (Loreal Lumi Magique ) or ( MAC Prep & Prime Natural Radiance )  this is more of a high end product but you would only use a pea size every time so it would last you a couple of months which would be ideal.
