My skin can be quite fussy and high-maintenance given that it’s seriously dry with an oily t-zone. I totally need to moisturize my skin and drink lots of water just so that my skin stays hydrated. But when you put on makeup, just that doesn’t always seem to work. So when it comes to primers, I totally live by them. Some people might think that they’re a total waste of time, but I firmly believe they totally aid in the longevity and overall look of my makeup. Also, if my skin is not hydrated enough and I put on makeup, it results in my skin being a bit of a flaky mess. So, primers are a must for me!
Any hydrating primer is priceless for me and thankfully I’ve come across some primers that keep my skin feeling so happy but also makes my makeup so perfect!
Too Faced Hangover Primer
The first primer that I’ve come across that just perfect is the Too Faced Hangover Primer. To begin with, I love the coconut-y smell! It smells so incredibly refreshing and it’s super hydrating. When I put on my makeup, I start with applying a primer. I’ve been using them for a long time now and I absolutely love it. This primer is absolutely amazing and gives my face a smooth and a very hydrating feel. You can wear this primer alone too, it looks so natural and feels so comfortable almost like I’m not wearing anything. If you have oily skin, I don’t recommend wearing it in warm weather as it doesn’t keep the oiliness at bay.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch primer
The other primer that I have been obsessed with is the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer. My skin is dry and this primer gives my skin exactly what it needs. This primer has become my go-to for a while now. It hydrates my skin and settles to a soft matte finish. It doesn’t dry up or get flaky, and this primer applies like a moisturizer and really blurs the pores and makes my skin look evener. It smoothes out the pores so much, I can’t even say! This definitely keeps my makeup on for so long. This primer definitely works great with the Fenty Beauty foundation, and I have used it with other foundations, and the results are amazing. I would say this primer is for all skin types. This primer is totally a must-have!
I never want to be without this – rarely do I repurchase a product due to my obsession with trying new, but I’ve bought this a several times now!
