Every true blue beauty maven knows that a primer is an integral part of her beauty regimen, but if you're new to the primer game, where do you start? For those who just can't even when it comes to sifting through the beauty aisles (one girl's favourite pastime is another's fresh hell), we've rounded up three primers for three specific concerns, so you can find yours without any effort (plus two of them you can order online, so, you're welcome!).
Skin concern: Sensitive skin
Try this: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, $37
Why it’s awesome: For starters, it’s a water-based primer, so if you’re looking for something lightweight, this is your go-to–not questions asked. For a lot of people, while silicone-based primers do blur and smooth out skin, it can be clogging and uncomfortable for some. If you’re actively trying to avoid a silicone-based primer or just have super-sensitive skin where nothing but water will do, this mist is where you search ends. Spray on a freshly cleaned and moisturized face before applying your makeup for a refreshed feeling and a smooth canvas or spray after you’ve applied your makeup for a quick pick-me-up since this mist doubles as a skin-booster, too.
