Life is full of fleeting pleasures—don’t let your makeup job be one of them. This oil-free primer ensures that your foundation stays just where it belongs: on your face. The sheer gel absorbs instantly and clings to both powder and liquid foundation. Bonus: It’s rich in skin-loving antioxidants A, C, and E.
How it Works
Formulated for oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin, this primer won’t grease you up, but it will help hydrate the dry skin around blemishes. Meanwhile, grease-curbing ingredients ensure that your makeup doesn’t slip-slide off, so it lasts all day.
How to Use
After applying sunscreen or moisturizer, massage a generous amount of primer into skin. Follow with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20. (Pro tip: Stick this tube in the fridge 15-20 minutes before use. The cooled gel will have a delightful depuffing effect on skin.)
