What primer should you be using?

July 4, 2018

Primer is dependent on your skin needs and wear time. 


As a makeup artist I always prime my clients face because I know it needs to last and look flawless for the duration of their event. 


When choosing a primer think about your skin needs, here are my recommendations for various skin types:

Dull skin

Your skin is looking flat.

Solution: Choose a primer that will add glow and radiance 

Laura Mercier, Foundation Primer - Radiance

Open pores

Large pores on the skin creating texture

Solution: You will never close your pores but you can minimise with skin prep to achieve a flawless base 

Benefit pore professional


Dry skin

Your skin is dehydrated and flaky

Solution: Add moisture into the skin with a hydrating primer

Too Faced Hangover Primer

Mature skin

Ageing skin that might need a combination of things

Solution: You tend to wear less makeup the older you get, look for a lightweight primer that tackles a multitude of skin issues

Hourglass veil mineral primer

Oily skin

Too much oil can create a shiny face 

Solution: You need to mattify your skin to control the shine
