I remember directly going in with foundation after skincare. I unknowingly underestimated how important primers are in determining how makeup sits on my face. They’re multi-action formulas that extend the longevity of makeup while addressing other concerns all at once — from hydrating the skin to controlling oil, they can cater to different skin types.
Since my skin is dry and flaky, I’ve found some primers that moisturise and hydrate my skin while doing what they do. Here are the best dry skin primers.
Oil-Free, Illuminating Cream Primer With Soft-Focus Effect
The MyGlamm Manish Malhotra Beauty Luminous Moisturising Primer is an oil-free, cream-based dry skin primer that imparts a soft-focus glow to your skin immediately. It certainly helps that it contains hyper-lumiscent pearls for that added radiance. This one hydrates and nourishes the skin too — countering dryness and flakiness and minimising the appearance of pores for a better, more seamless application of makeup.
The MyGlamm Tinted Perfection Face Primer is a balmy, smooth product that goes onto your skin like butter — leaving a healthy-looking tint behind for that lit-from-within glow. It actively targets pores and excess oil while smoothing over texture and mattifying the skin. But don’t worry. This primer for dry skin is extremely silky and light on the skin too and suits all skin types.
The MyGlamm Tinted Perfection Brightening Banana Primer is much like the previous face primer for dry skin — just that it has a slight hint of yellow to tackle imperfections and brightens the skin even more. This one’s especially beneficial for those with warm, yellow-ish undertones as opposed to cool, pink undertones. It even blurs lines, pores, and texture for an even-toned glow.
5 in 1 Primer-Concealer-Foundation-Compact with SPF 30 & Skin Tone Corrector Palette
If you’re looking for an all-encompassing product that includes a primer, this is it for you. The MyGlamm Total Makeover FF Cream Foundation Palette contains a primer, concealer, foundation, compact, and two skin tone correctors; all of which are in cream-powder form and have an SPF of 30. They have a medium-to-high coverage and feel light on the skin. Each one is infused with tropical oils to hydrate and nourish the face. You can find them in 5 different shades to suit different skin tones.
There you have it. The best face primers for dry skin. I know I’m adding these to my cart the day my paycheck rolls in!
