10 Primer Dupes

10 Primer Dupes for all you ladies! Do you like to wear primer? I usually wear it only when I’m going to have a long day, instead of just 4-6 hours. I’m one of those girls who likes to take their makeup off as soon as I get home and I know I don’t have to go back out. It’s good for your skin to breathe!

I have  an uneven skintone and some issues with large pores around my nose, so I usually use a color correcting primer or a clear one that will fill in my pores. My current favorite is the Smashbox Photo Finish, but I’ve been meaning to pick up the Monistat Chaffing Gel since I’ve heard SO much about it and am damn curious to see if it works. It is supposed to be a gel with a powder finish, and that sounds about perfect for my skin. I like to use my elf Studio Tone Correction Powder over my foundation to make sure there is no more redness peaking through.

Let me know what your favorite primer dupes are!

    First off, my skin is hyper-sensitive plus I have mild rosacea. So I can’t use just any makeup. I finally decided to give Bare Minerals a shot. I got a mini-set that included a little tube of their primer. I really like it, and my skin doesn’t seem to mind it at all. I have been trying to find the sampler set of Dermalogica’s calming line, but Ulta doesn’t appear to have it anymore. Ideas?? Hugs!!

    • I haven’t tried the Bare Minerals primer yet, but I’ve heard good things about it. I looked into the Dermalogica’s calming sample kit- it looks like they have discontinued the kit but not the line. So if you search “dermalogica ultra calming kit” and look at the Google Shopping results it looks like there are still kits out there that you could try. 😀 <3
