Here are 10 BEST PRIMERS selected by Vogue
SmashboxThis primer has a fiercely loyal following - so much so that the brand has launched an entire range of alternative versions to suit every different skin type and requirement. The original is second to none, and gives skin a soft-focus finish and silky texture.
BenefitDevoted to making large pores look less noticeable, The Porefessional's oil-free formula and long-lasting results have made it a Benefit bestseller ever since its launch in 2011.
ChanelChanel's Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base manages to mattify skin whilst also providing a dewy glow without even the slightest hint of sparkle or shimmer, as well as evening out discoloured areas. Also great mixed with foundation for extra radiance and staying power.
Laura MercierThe clue is in the name - this primer is all about luminous, youthful skin. Use all over the skin for a dewy glow, or apply to cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the forehead for a subtle but noticeable radiance.
CliniqueClinique's range of six trouble-shooting primers each target a different skin concern, from sallowness to redness. The colour-correcting formula for dullness in darker skin tones has a subtle bronze tint, to avoid the chalky finish that some primers can leave.
HourglassThis lightweight primer glides easily on, leaving a velvety finish and keeping make-up in place all day long. Plus the SPF protection saves an extra step.
BourjoisIf shiny skin is your nemesis then look to Bourjois's mattifying formula, which refines pores and smooths skin for easy make-up application with no caking.
I'm using this one, and I'm going to stick with it:-)
Urban DecayIf keeping eye make-up in place is your aim, Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion is the one for the job. Lightweight and easy to apply, it prevents liner from budging and keeps shadow from creasing.
MACThis beauty classic promotes even skin tone and creates the ideal base for make-up, plus it noticeably reduces oiliness.
As a MAC lover i need to try this one:-)
Eve LomMore than just make-up, Eve Lom's Flawless Radiance Primer brings together multiple plant extracts and vitamins to moisturise, nourish and protect as it works. Add to that an easily-absorbed formula and clever light-diffusing particles and you've got pretty much the perfect primer.
