Best Overall Primer
A silky and lightweight, translucent makeup primer that minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines.
Those with dry skin aren't a fan of the matte formula. Expensive price tag.
Who's it for? The Benefit POREfessional Face Primer is for anyone who is looking to fill in fine lines and englarged pores. Which, lets be honest, is most of us. This makeup primer is especially good for those with oily skin, too because it mattifies unwanted shine.
What it does: This makeup primer is the best of the best. We know because we've tested it ourselves. The oil-free formula fills imperfections and evens your skin tone without actually looking covered up. Why we love this product so much? It's silky formula is ultra-lightweight and gives you a flawless matte finish.
Price: We think $31 for the best makeup primer is a pretty good deal. Not to mention, this stuff is so lightweight you don’t have to use very much to get the job done. The less you have to apply, the less you have to buy. And, depending on how much you use on a daily basis, the 0.75 ounce bottle should last 3-6 months. If this is simply out of your budget, or you're hesitant to spend so much on a product you havent tried, Benefit offers a travel size for $12. Pair this makeup primer with the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Oil Free Foundation and you'll never look back.
