Purpose of Primer

The purpose of foundation primer includes but is not limited to providing a flawless base for foundations & tinted moisturizers, prep and smoothes your facial skin, assists with decreasing the look of larger pores, and extends the wear and staying power of foundation. Here's a few of the best primers currently on the market:

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer--Delicate, light, and silky are
all the rave that makes this product a true favorite amongst consumers. $36

Chanel Blanc Universel -- Known to be one of Chanel's top products, it has been quoted to be magical. Not only is it highly beneficial to filling in pores and those fine lines, but it also helps suppress ruddy skin tones. $44

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free Contains silicone which aids in a smooth, gliding application & fills in fine lines and wrinkles. $30

Mac Prep+Prime Skin Primer--Literally known to keep your foundation in place all day. Low impact to the budget is also a nice perk here. $25

Sephora Skin Smoothing Makeup Base--A great basic primer that's popular and doesn't disappoint in the bargain department. $12

*A note to the wise: Please be sure to exfoliate the skin at least one to two times a week to rid all scalie/dry skin possibilities. This will ensure that you're getting the best possible results of what your primer has to offer. Afterall, primer atop dry skin is not a good look whatsoever!
