Face primers that makeup artists swear by

It would be best if you also considered using a primer to protect your eyes. Gabriel says that an eye primer can increase the pigmentation of shadows and prevent them from creasing or moving after the product sets. Smooth eyes with some hold can make your cat-eye or cut crease last longer, just as your favourite primer.

We asked the professionals to share their favourite primers because they are important in any makeup routine. These primers are from brands such as Dermalogica and Becca. They help create flawless makeup that stays put.

Primer for oily skin: Becca’s Poreless Perfecting Primer. $39

This primer is great for all types of makeup, especially oily skin. It gives my skin a smooth, dry surface that allows the makeup to adhere. This is why I love it.” — Delina Mein, celebrity makeup artist

Primer for Oily Skin: Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer, $49

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer is a great choice for clients with more oily and textured skin. “This lightweight, non-greasy primer blurs lines, pores, hydrates, and brightens for beautiful skin with minimal shine.” Angel Gabriel

Primer for the Eyes: MAC Pro Longwear paint pot, $19

“MAC paint pots are my favorite for eyes. You can either wear them by themselves or add shadow to them. They will bring out the colors of your shadows with no creasing or flaking.” Angel Gabriel

Primer for All Skin Types, Peter Thomas Roth Skin To Die For, $32

This flesh tone universal tint instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines, pores, and imperfections for flawless application. This can be used under makeup or as a standalone product for a flawless finish.

Primer for all Skin Types: Benefit Porefessional Primer, $32

I love this primer for all skin types. It helps reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines and smoothens the skin for a baby-soft complexion. It can be used under or over makeup.” Angel Gabriel

Tinted Primer: Beauty Blender, The Leveler Pore Minimizing Primer, $32

“While I don’t usually like primers (I believe in ‘less is More’ when it comes adding products to my skin), I discovered a product I could co-sign on to add foundation preparation. Beauty Blender has recently launched The Leveler Pore Minimizing Primer, a light, almost BB-cream-like prep product. It reduces redness and pores size while smoothening uneven texture. It’s important not to apply it all over your face. It doesn’t need to be all over the face. I use it in the T-zone because it adds no bulk and keeps me from powdering too much. It’s also tinted so it can be used by itself on lazy makeup days.” Ashleigh Ciucci, makeup artist

Primer for Dry Skin, FarmHouse Fresh Three-milk Moisturizer, $44

“For people with dry skin, I apply FarmHouse Fresh Three Milk Moisturizer all across the face. After the skin is still moist, I apply matte foundation. This makes the foundation’s drier formula a tinted moisturizer. A solid foundation at the beginning keeps your look fresher and longer!” Brett Freedman, celebrity makeup artist
