You could have gone through a dozen primers trying to get that shine under control, and no we don’t mean glow, we are talking about grease. So it’s only natural to question, What is the best face primer for oily skin?
And I’m glad you asked, because below are some awesome examples of products made just for the oily skin peeps!
Primers are usually applied in between skin preparation and makeup application, so basically after you have prepped your skin but just before applying foundation.
Primers are quite important but it’s easy to assume that they are of no use when they aren’t achieving what you are after. But there’s usually a reason to that, and it’s pretty easy to solve.
One of the reasons is you probably aren’t getting the right primer for your individual skin type.
For example if you have oily skin then you should go for one that is oil free, for a dry skin, looking for a moisturizing product is a great idea.
