Primed for Action

Share

Whether you spend all day in an office, travel around to different locations, or work from the comfort of your own home, there is one thing that you do not want to happen when the clock strikes 5 p.m.: the disappearance of your makeup. There is nothing worse then spending the time in the morning to apply your makeup only to have it slip and slide away within a few hours. Luckily for us (and our faces!), there are some excellent primers that help perfect skin and seal makeup in place.

Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time ($22): This preservative-free primer is great for all skin types and combats rough patches, fine lines and any unevenness to keep skin looking and feeling great all day.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer ($30): For those with combination to oily skin, this product is a savior! It's lightweight and prevents excess oil from surfacing throughout the day.

Benefit POREfessional ($29): A primer that fills in all the bumps and minimizes pores for an even and flawless finish. Perfection!

Philosophy the Present ($28): This creamy formula is colorless and hides fine lines, wrinkles and pores. When applied underneath foundation, a pea-sized amount gives skin an airbrushed appearance.

Makeup Forever HD Microperfecting Primer ($32): This comes in different colors to help counteract various skin problems, from red cheeks to ashiness, and nourishes and softens skin while adding glow.

With any of these primers, you can make the dreaded makeup slip a thing of the past, and look just as fresh at dinner as you did when you left the house.
