A makeup primer is essential for setting your foundation for a longer time, irrespective of your skin type. The right combination of primer and foundation gives a much better result, but the choice of primer depends upon your skin type. Let’s have a look at a brief guide on how to choose the suitable primer depending upon your skin type:
People with dry skin experience a patchy foundation without a primer. They need a primer with hydrating and soothing properties. It should have a creamy texture for setting the foundation perfectly. An ideal primer for dry skin gives a dewy look.
Oily skin: Makeup Primer
A primer is an absolute necessity for oily skin. It combats excess oil and shine. It also helps cover enlarged pores. If you experience oily skin, look for a primer with oil-free formula with mattifying properties to get a matte look.
They often suffer from skin redness. So people with sensitive skin should opt for a green pigmented primer to combat redness. Always look for a short ingredient list. Check if you can find oil-free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free so that your skin might not react to them.
Choosing the right ingredient is very important as one wrong choice can make your skin suffer. So always consider your skin type and skin condition while selecting a product.
