Face primers can be hard to find. Some leave an oily residue and others dry out your skin! I’ve been through several products that have done just that, but luckily I have found a few that work well with my skin! Here are three that I absolutely suggest :)!

Bare Minerals is one of my fave makeup brands! No matter what I purchase, I’m almost always satisfied! Their Prime Time BB Primer-Cream not only primes your skin for makeup but helps both dry and oily skin. Since it is part BB cream, it covers blemishes and presents an even skin tone. It also contains 30 SPF so you’re prepared for your day poolside or at the beach!

For those with sensitive skin, Clinique is always your best bet! Their Superprimer Face Primers are perfect for those who worry about trying new products on their skin. Clinique makes sure their products won’t breakout your face, yet still do the job! The primer does just that and has amazing quality.

Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox PrimerAlthough this is technically a primer, I just have to throw in one last product. Smashbox’s Photo Matte Anti-Shine is a cream-gel formula that is absolutely amazing for people with oily skin. You can apply this cream before or after you put on makeup, depending on the type of foundation you use. It instantly soaks up any excess oil and minimizes your pores. It works for up to 8 hours so you don’t need to reapply continuously throughout the day!

Let me know which product is your favorite!
