Pick the right makeup primer for your specific skin type

Whether you have oily, combination, dry, or sensitive skin, there’s a primer that works specifically for your skin type.

Essentially, a primer forms a protective layer on your skin that forms a barrier between your makeup and skincare. It also preps and perfects the canvas of your face for makeup to go on smoothly. Enlarged pores, excess oiliness or dryness and signs of ageing can all affect the performance of the makeup that goes on your skin, which is why it’s important to use a primer and set the base right.

If you have dry skin

Tightness and flakiness are two of your main concerns if you’re dealing with dry skin. The most important thing to keep in mind here: hydration. “Try using a primer that’s super hydrating and sinks into the skin easily. Oils also work very well as primers for dry skin,”

Makeup Primers for Oily Skin

If your skin is oily, it’s pretty obvious that you’ll need a mattifying primer. A mattifying primer will prevent your skin from becoming shiny and greasy throughout the day. Since oily skin-types are more acne prone, there are some makeup primers out there with anti-acne ingredients that will help keep your breakouts at bay.

If you have normal or combination skin

When an occasional oily T-zone is your primary concern, you’re good to use most primers as they are naturally-smoothening in nature, other than the ones made for specific concerns, of course. Using a mattifying primer on the greasier areas, and a hydrating primer on the drier areas works best.

Makeup Primers for Sensitive Skin

Makeup primers are excellent for sensitive skin, because they give an extra layer of protection from the environment. Make sure your primer is low on fragrance, so it doesn’t cause any irritation.

If your sensitivity manifests itself as redness, you might prefer a green-based primer to neutralize the red tones in your skin. This way, you’ll find yourself needing to use less foundation. You can also look for soothing ingredients in your primer, like green tea extract or niacinamide.
