Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well! Today I wanted to do a post about some of my absolute favorite makeup primers. These primers help me achieve smooth skin and keeps my makeup looking great all day long, so I thought I would share with you guys which products I absolutely love! Enjoy!
Here’s some of my favorite makeup products and primers I use to make my skin look ~flawless~:
Now this Primer Water has been around for a while and is one of my absolute favorites! It’s silicone, alcohol, and oil-free, making it perfect for all the skin types out there!
Being a 2-in-1 primer and setting spray, I notice my skin is instantly hydrated when I spritz it on before makeup making it the perfect canvas for foundation. I then always lightly mist my face once I’m finished with my makeup which makes my foundation “melt” into my skin giving it a more natural look.
A couple of my favorite things about this primer spray is that it doesn’t make my skin look shiny after using it as setting pray and also can be used multiple time throughout the day if my skin looks like it needs some hydration. Also a bonus tip if you use this stuff: stick it in the fridge for extra refreshment!

This HydraGel Eye Primer does wonders for people who have dry, tired-looking skin around their eye areas. Made with Encapsulated Water Complex, this cooling stick glides effortlessly over the eyes making them ready for makeup.
I absolutely love the HydraGel Eye Primer stick because it makes my eye shadow and concealer around my eyes look absolutely flawless. Before I discovered this eye primer, I always had the issue of super dry, wrinkly looking skin on my eyelids and below my eyes after I applied concealer and setting powder. That issue was simply because I didn’t have proper hydration around my eyes.
After trying this primer out for the first time, I immediately noticed that my under-eyes looked a lot more plump and my eye shadow blended a lot better. I highly recommend trying this out for all ages, because no matter what your age, its important to give your eye area some much-needed hydration!

I recently discovered that primers for the skin are a must for flawless looking makeup! One of my other favorite primers other than Smashbox’s Primer Water is the No Filter Blurring Primer because this stuff makes you glow!
Just the tiniest drop mixed with my foundation adds that extra hydrating boost that my skin needs along with some extra shimmery, glowing skin- without looking super shiny! Filled with essential oils like Coconut, Olive, and Shea, moisturizing agave, and essential fatty acids, this stuff is loaded with skin loving ingredient for all skin types.
I’m obsessed with this stuff because if can also be used as a super light, natural-looking highlight on the cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and anywhere that can use a little shimmer. It’s definitely a must have to any makeup routine!

I’ve never had more compliments in my life on my skin than whenever I use this beautiful NARS foundation.
My all time favorite foundation that I’ve tried so far is the NARS Weightless Foundation because it makes my skin look airbrushed yet natural with its buildable medium-to-full coverage. Being super concentrated and pretty liquid-y, I only need a couple of pumps of it to achieve a full coverage look that completely covers any blemishes or redness.
The best thing about this foundation is that it’s shocking how much if feels like your natural skin once set with setting powder. It literally feels like there’s nothing on my face all day long which I really appreciate!

This Fully Charged Mascara by PUR Cosmetics obviously isn’t something that’s looked at as a primer, but it’s definitely one of my must-haves for completing any of my makeup looks, so I thought I would share it!
Ever since discovering this amazing mascara, I’ve had such voluminous lashes! Containing a unique Magnetic Force Formula, this mascara wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to lift and separate while adding maximum volume without clumping. After being a little skeptical, I can honestly say that using it makes my lashes look so much longer than they actually are. This is seriously one of my favorite mascaras that complete any makeup look- without having to put on falsies!
