The Best Drugstore Primers, According to Makeup Artists and Skin-Care Experts
If you want a smooth canvas for putting on your makeup — after you’ve cleansed and moisturized, of course — then primer should be the very next step in your routine. “Primer is the bridge between skin care and makeup,” according to makeup artist Shara Strand. Certified physician assistant Ami Dalal of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City agrees, saying that primers “provide an extra layer between your makeup and your skin and help smooth the look of your skin, even out skin tone, and help your makeup last longer.”
But because it’s a product that will sit on your skin all day long, certified physician assistant Alexandra Gold says it’s important that the primer be non-comedogenic (i.e., it won’t clog pores). “You want your skin to be able to breathe throughout the day and not create an opportunity for acne to develop or worsen,” she says.
