How to Pick the Best Foundation Primer for Your Skintype and Concerns
Primers come in many different tones, formulas, and finishes, and whilst you can certainly choose a “one-size-fits-all” style approach to your primer, that’s not necessarily best for everyone. There are multiple variations of product which can help to target individual skin types and skin concerns.
In short, primers are base products that you apply after you’ve cleansed and moisturized your skin, but before you apply any coverage products like foundation or concealer. Primers are designed to help make your makeup last a lot longer and smooth over the surface of the skin so your makeup applies evenly.
They’re a great makeup prep product, but they’re not the same as your moisturizer. Some primers are skincare-makeup hybrids which allow you to simply apply it to your skin and get benefits of both. Depending on the primer you use, you may find combining a moisturizer and a primer provide too much “slip” to your skin, causing makeup to slide and apply unevenly. Majority of the time, this can be overcome by simply allowing a full 1-2 minutes for each layer of product to absorb and set before moving on to the next.
PRIMERS FOR EVERYONE:
If your only goal and concern is to prolong the wear of your makeup without targeting any concerns such as redness or excess oil, stick with the basics and opt for a regular primer. These primers are not all universal, but their main goal and purpose is to simply keep your makeup looking fresher for longer, no matter your skin type.
SKINCARE-MAKEUP HYBRID PRIMERS:
Certain brands offer products which provide skin with nutrients, vitamins, and hydration, but combined with ingredients which are also designed to increase the wear time of your makeup. These primers typically are richer in texture than a traditional primer, and they may even be heavier than your regular moisturizer, if you find this too much for your skin, try a serum primer. A serum primer has the consistency of a serum with many of its benefits, but also works to prime your skin for makeup application.
Try: Glossier Priming Moisturizer, Tula Face Filter Blurring & Moisturizing Prime, e.l.f Hydrating Primer Serum
PRIMERS FOR DRY/SENSITIVE SKIN:
If you have a drier skin type you may find that makeup has a tendency to appear flaky and cakey on your skin. As foundation and concealer can often grip onto areas of the skin which are flaky, makeup can “cake up” on these areas and look uneven, wrinkly, and blotchy. A hydrating primer can work to smooth over these areas whilst simultaneously hydrating the skin so makeup applies smoothly and has a healthy, hydrated base to apply to.
Try: Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer, Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer
PRIMERS FOR OILY SKIN:
For those with oily skin, a primer is your best bet for keeping makeup on your skin and preventing it from sliding and slipping all over the place, whilst simultaneously keeping your skin matte. If you’re someone with oily skin opt for a specifically designed mattifying or oil control primer designed to help reduce the appearance of shine and keep your makeup on all day.
Try: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Bobbi Brown Primer Plus Mattifier

PRIMERS FOR LARGE PORES/UNEVEN SKIN:
Large pores can be a burden on makeup, but every persons pore size is different and this can vary based on genetics and skin type. Whilst some brand claim to “shrink” your pores, that’s not really possible. Large pores can cause makeup to look cakey and you may find that foundations and creams “settle” into your pores. Furthermore, if you’ve suffered with bad acne in the past and have been left with “ice pick” acne scars, a velvety, resurfacing primer could be just the trick.
Try: Benefit Porefessional Primer, Too Faced Primed & Poreless + Advanced Formula Primer
PRIMERS FOR FINE LINES/BUMPY SKIN:
From fine lines, to wrinkles, to acne scarring, skin that has an uneven texture can pose a real struggle for makeup. Certain formulas can settle into fine lines and wrinkles (thus exaggerating them) and foundation can often accentuate uneven and bumpy skin texture. A smoothing, primer designed to blur imperfections will help to smooth the texture of the skin and provide a layer between your skin and.
Try: Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector, Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Blurring Coconut Face Primer
PRIMERS FOR REDNESS:
Redness can occur regardless of skin type, so whether you’re dry and flaky, or oily, blotchy, red, and acne-prone, a primer specifically designed to correct redness in the skin can work magic. Many redness reducing primers contain a dose of yellow or green pigments to “correct” the redness in the skin, whilst it may look daunting to apply these bright shades to your skin, they essentially “knock out” the redness meaning you don’t need to add layers and layers of product to cover up redness. If you have fair skin, try mixing these highly pigmented primers with a standard facial primer or moisturizer before application.

PRIMERS FOR DULL SKIN:
An illuminating primer is a glowy skin must-have. Dewy, illuminating, hydrating, and totally glow-inducing, but they’re often lighter than your typical hydrating primer (which may have illuminating particles also!) If you have dull skin or just love to rock dewy skin look for a a primer that contains light reflecting particles. These small, shimmering particles work to “bounce” light off the skin to give it a more radiant glow , you can also use it atop of makeup as a highlighter, mixed in with foundation to give your foundation a glow (and lighten the coverage) or on its own for an ultra-subtle, natural glow.
Try: Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primer - Illuminating, Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer
PRIMERS FOR A BRONZED GLOW:
Freshly tanned skin has a natural radiance about it, but a natural tan isn’t necessarily the safest thing you can do for your skin. If you’re wanting a little bit of shimmer and glow, try a bronzing primer. Use it underneath makeup for shimmer, glow, and a subtle bronze to your skin, wear on its own as a makeshift style tinted moisturizer, or mix a little in with your foundation to darken an existing shade + add a healthy dose of glow.

My Everyday Makeup Routine🤎🥥
In my eyes makeup is a form of art. It’s fun to me and it enhances my features. It completes my whole look for the day. With makeup there’s endless outcomes, it’s personal to you, and it doesn’t matter with what others think about it. Never let someone make you feel bad about the amount you put on, it’s your happiness!! I’ll stop the cheetah chatter and tell you guys my 2021 makeup routine atm, enjoy!!🤎🤎
☾ First step: Eyebrows
ʚĭɞೃ Eyebrows are very important to me. They’re always done, always slayed, bad eyebrows= sad lashanti and it throws off my whole look. Having good eyebrows ties in the whole look and make it easier to work with the rest of my steps in my makeup routine. I prefer to use pencil over dip brow since it’s faster and easier in my opinion. I go in with the brand ruby kisses in the shade black brown. You can buy this at your local beauty supply store.✨ ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Next step: Foundation
☾ Foundation type: Skin tint
ʚĭɞೃ Guys! I know y’all heard about this all over instagram. The fenty beauty eaze drop is amazinggg. It’s light weight, and covers your trouble areas with one layer!!. It looks super natural when you apply it to your skin with your fingers or brush, what ever you’ll like to use, but i prefer to use a flat angled brush. I use the shade 21. It’s perrrfect for the hot weather.☀️👒 ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Next step: Concealer
ʚĭɞೃ When it comes to concealer, the L.A girl pro concealer￼￼ is my bestie. She gets the job done!! I highlight certain areas of my face￼ such as my eyes, chin, forehead, upper lip, and the bridge of my nose. I also use it to shape/ clean my eyebrows. I use the shade toffee while doing these steps￼￼￼. When I want to be more natural or just in a rush￼, I use the L.A girl concealer in the shade toast which is close to my skin tone￼. I use it to cover up my problem areas￼ and clean up my eyebrows on more chilled relaxed days. Lastly, I ￼when I decide to test my make up skills￼￼￼ I use the L.A girl pro concealer￼ in the shade mahogany to contour at the moment, and it honestly works super well. ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Next step: Eyes
ʚĭɞೃ When it comes to the eyes I love to keep it neutral( i’m in love with colorful eye looks though). My pallet of choice is the two faced chocolate gold pallet and I go in with the shade “so boujee”. It compliments my eyes and skin tone so well!! ʚĭɞೃ
ʚĭɞೃ After i’m done applying my shadow I go in with too faced better than sex liquid eyeliner. I recently got back into doing winged looks that compliments my eyes. The cat eye winged look is my go to style!!. When i’m done with this step I go in with a eyeliner pencil in black to tighten my eyes. I go in with a regular beauty supply store eyeliner, but the urban decay pencil eyeliners are amazingggg. ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Next step: Lashes
ʚĭɞೃ Y’alll, my look isn’t completed without the lashessss. I use the too faced better than sex mascara to bring out my lashes. Before I talk about the lashes I use there’s this amazing glue I have to put y’all onto. My favorite lash glue is the kiss adhesive strip lash. You can get this from your local beauty supply store!! It keeps your lashes on alll day and doesn’t lift up. When it’s time for you to take them off, it comes off easily and doesn’t take your actual lashes with it. Now!! onto the lashes. I use Alicrown lashes from amazon. They’re fluffy mink lashes and comes in 10 pairss. ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Next step: Highlighter
ʚĭɞೃ I’ve also been getting into highlighters recently and figured out places that helps bring my whole look together and compliments me. I love applying highlighter under the arch of my eyebrows, the bridge of my nose, and my cupid’s bow. This combination is beautifullll y’all!! My highlighters of choice are juvias palace in the shade “Nefertiti”, fenty beauty diamond balm in “how many carats?!”, and glossier holascope in the shade “topaz”. It all depends on how i’m feeling that day. ʚĭɞೃ
☾ Last step: Lips
ʚĭɞೃ I loveeee lipgloss and lipliners. I’ll either go in with a liner and clear lipgloss combo, lip liner and tinted lipgloss, or just tinted lipgloss. I’ve been lighter with my lips for the spring and summer season. I’ve always go with a brown or purple tinted lipgloss. My top glosses of choice are NYX butter gloss in the shade “cinnamon roll” (I apply this gloss by it self), Milani gloss in the shade “whatever” (I either apply this by itself or with a lip liner from NK makeup in the shade “brown”), MAC dazzle gloss in the shade “Extra amps” (by it self) and ruby kisses jellicious lipgloss in clear with lip liner from NK in the shade “cappuccino”￼. ʚĭɞೃ
ʚĭɞೃ I hopeeee you guys enjoyed the reading, thank you so much for reading and tell me y’all favorite part of y’all makeup routine (even if it’s simple).❤️🍉🍒🌹 ʚĭɞೃ
