For so long I’d heard so much about how I had to wear a primer if I wanted my makeup to look good and last all day. Being the sceptic that I am, I just assumed it was yet another useless product that someone was trying to sell me. It wasn’t until I tried a sample of one in my GlossyBox that I knew I’d been missing out. So, heres a list of some of my favorites!
Boots No7 Colour Calming Primer– I love this one because it hides any kind of redness, whether it’s sunburn or blemishes.
Mally Perfect Prep Poreless Primer– Love this one! Just be sure to use something other than your fingers to scoop it out of the pot so you don’t contaminate it.
OC Eight– This one is pretty tough to find, but even on the hottest days of summer my makeup doesn’t move at all. I only apply it to my t-zone and then wait about five minutes for it to dry before I put on my makeup.
Benefit Stay Flawless Primer-Just like almost every other Benefit product, this primer works amazingly well! It’s super thick, so just be sure to apply your makeup with your fingers or a BeautyBlender sponge instead of a brush.
SmashBox Photo Finish Light– I feel like SmashBox is the Holy Grail of primers and a lot of other people agree because it has won pretty much every award there is to win!
HourGlass Self-Tanning Primer- This is the only one that I haven’t tried, but have been hearing really good things about it. I’m a sucker for anything self tanning, so let me know if any of you have tried this one!
What are your favorites? Let me know of any that I need to try!
