The very first product in my makeup routine is makeup primer. It's the best first step to ensure that my makeup goes on smoother, hides my pores and fines lines and locks in my makeup for the day.
Makeup primers are honestly one of the best inventions when it comes to makeup. The right makeup primer will keep makeup on through ALL the elements; through heat, humidity; everything your day has to offer.
Just about every makeup brand has a makeup primer in their lineup now, and it may be hard to know exactly which makeup primer is right for you.
I certainly have my favorites, but I am here to tell you that you don't need to spend a fortune on your primer to get a longlasting result. There are plenty of great makeup primers available right at the drugstore.
Here is a shortlist of the best makeup primers you can find next time you are at your favorite drugstore. If they are not a part of your makeup routine, you need to check a few out and make at least one a part of yours.
Do you use a makeup primer? If you do, is it from the drugstore, specialty beauty retailer or department store? I'd love to know.
Would you try a drugstore makeup primer if you use a more expensive one? Tell me in the comments!
