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:
Your skin is looking flat.
Solution: Choose a primer that will add glow and radiance
Laura Mercier, Foundation Primer - Radiance
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
Your skin is dehydrated and flaky
Solution: Add moisture into the skin with a hydrating primer
Too Faced Hangover Primer
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
Too much oil can create a shiny face
Solution: You need to mattify your skin to control the shine
Cover FX mattifying primer with anti-acne treatment
