10 Best Makeup Primers You Absolutely Need For The Winter

Winter is not only known for its snowy and cold weather. In the beauty community, people often associate this season with dryness. Therefore, wearing makeup seems to be much more of a challenge as products build up and leave our faces looking cakey. However, some cosmetics can hydrate the skin during this time of the year. If you’re looking for the right primer to wear during the winter season, check out the 10 listed below: 

1. Sleek Makeup Hydrating Primer: $12.20

Infused with water and mineral oil, this hydrating primer is known for its moisturizing properties. Additionally, the product is not very dense and creamy, making it easier to apply and wear. But perhaps, the primer’s pore-wicking abilities and lightweightedness make it the most appealing to beauty aficionados.

2. NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer: $8.50

Gold flecks, honey, and collagen are all ingredients in this primer that give it a hydration boost. In fact, this primer doubles up as a serum when times are desperate. The gold flecks correct discoloration for those with sensitive skin and the overall formula moisturizes dry spots.

3. Milani Prime Perfection Hydrating and Pore-Minimizing Face Primer: $9.99

Similar to others, the Milani primer is convenient to apply and has a light texture. What’s more, reviewers say that the primer blends well with different foundations and concealers. However, a downside is that the primer is not as pore-blurring as it claims to be. Hence, it may be smart to use a medium to heavyweight foundation and concealer to pair with this specific primer. 

4. Colourpop Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer: $12 

With ingredients like coconut and argan oil, the primer fights skin inflammation and infections. According to reviewers, the product works for both dry and combination skin, leaving a dewy finish.

5. The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer: $7.90

This product is formulated like a serum with no nuts, alcohol, or gluten. As a result, many people — especially reviewers — say that the primer can be compared to high-end, luxury makeup brands. Furthermore, just in case you experience an adverse reaction, note that DECIEM allows you to return the item within 365 days.

6. Flower Supernova Celestial Skin Elixir: $15.99

Filled with antioxidants and oils, this moisturizer and primer in one helps to even out skin discoloration and pigmentation. One of the key ingredients is lavender oil which is known for soothing dry skin and combating unfriendly blemishes. So, those damaged and dehydrated patches from the winter will vanish.

7. Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Aqua Fresh Hydro Primer: $8.00

This lightweight hydrating primer includes a special ingredient: bamboo water.  Even if it sounds unfamiliar at first, bamboo water is beneficial in terms of slowing down the aging process, protecting the skin against bacterial agents, and boosting collagen production. No wonder why the product averages 4.6 – 5 stars on reviews.

8. CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Primer: $11.99

The product is not only easy, breezy, and lemon-squeezy to apply, but it also doesn’t leave a greasy film after application. Catering towards sensitive, dry, oily, and normal skin, reviewers deem that the All-Day primer can last for the whole day, as it promises to. However, keep in mind that the primer is silicone-based, which means that you need to revamp your skincare routine before and after application to avoid future breakouts.

9. Pixi Beauty Flawless Beauty Primer EvenSkin: $20.00 

Curated with Vitamins A, C, and E, this primer aims to nourish the skin and provide a glow from within. This product contains no parabens or toxic chemicals, and it’s not tested on animals. Nothing is better than a safe product that is suitable for all skin types and needs.

10. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Serum & Primer Hybrid: $15.00

Rich in hyaluronic acid, this dermatologist-tested product aims to moisturize and give your skin a healthy glow. Conveniently, the product can also double-up as a night serum, and it works just as effectively with its silky finish.
