Top 10 Makeup Primers.

Makeup primers are one of the best inventions ever when it comes to makeup.  A makeup primer will help makeup go on more smooth, minimize pores and fine lines. Not only that, a makeup primer makes sure that makeup lasts on your face all day long, though heat, humidity -- all the elements of the day. Makeup primers are not solely for the face either. There are makeup primers for eyes and lips too and all are part of my makeup routine. If they are not a part of your makeup routine, you need to check out this list and make at least one a part of yours.

This is a grand list. I like radiance enhancing primers that do double duty, if you will. Might as well enhance and prime at once!
Excited about your list. I've tried all of the Smashbox and hated the original but loved the hydrating you have listed. I want to try Hourglass as it gets such great write-ups but gosh is it ever costly. And Laura Mercier gets great reviews too, but again, I don't know which one to try first either.
The Clinique primer is really good. I use the Purple one and it brightens my skin. Going to check out the other lists!! I like these series.
My very first primer was Laura Mercier. I remember how revolutionary I thought it was. I totally forgot about my MUFE Hi Def. Gotta pull that one out now.
I keep reading about primers but I swear I put so much on my face already and wear a long lasting foundation (Mally) do I really need the extra step?
Been reading raves about Hourglass but expensive. Perhaps I should try a sample first. Thank you!
