Everyone’s ideal primer will be different, because we all have different skin needs. Some may need a primer that is more hydrating, others may want to minimize their pores and prevent oil from coming through. The Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer comes in three versions: Brightening, Perfecting, and Pore Reducing. You can pick whichever primer suits your skin needs while the primer helps keep your makeup locked in place.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
The L’Oreal Paris Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation performs like a high-end foundation. It’s full coverage, has a natural finish, evens out the skin beautifully and lasts all day long. It has a hydrating formula that feels lightweight on the skin. However, it does dry down fast so don’t wait to blend. It has SPF 25 and is non-comedogenic. For those who want less coverage or have dry skin, I would apply it with a beauty blender or mix the foundation with a moisturizer or facial oil to give your face a little extra hydration.
