In fact, celebrity makeup artist Napoleon Perdis has said it well

Not to prime is a crime! It’s been my career-long mantra as it helps finesse your foundation, helping your skin to stay flawless for longer”.

If that is the sacrosanct truth, let us explore and help you choose some of the best primers for your face.

Skin Type: First and foremost, determine your skin type. Depending on its nature – dry, oil or combination skin, choose a primer that suits well.

Skin Tone: Primers come in various hues so as to meet specific skin needs. While green-colored primers combat redness that comes from acne, light purple primers counteract sallow undertones and pink primers help brighten the complexion.

Once you’ve done your selection on the above factors, apply the primer but only after your have moisturised your face. If you apply it before your day cream, then the water-based products can’t penetrate well to reach your skin. Here we go on primers for dry skin:
