The best hydrating primers from the perfect makeup look

The best hydrating primers: With winter around the corner, the skin could use a little extra hydration.

primer works wonders. You use it to form a base on which you can apply your foundation nicely evenly and after that, it also stays in place all day long. Not a superfluous luxury at the moment, because due to the dry air indoors, your glow will sometimes disappear after a few hours.

But this is not the only thing a primer does. A primer also ensures that pores, wrinkles, and imperfections become less visible. Because the primer forms a kind of layer on your face, the foundation pulls less into pores or fine lines. This immediately makes the skin look smoother and smoother. This makes the use of a primer ideal for those who suffer from pimples and blemishes.

While it is sometimes thought that a primer is especially important for oily skin, a primer is also essential for dry skin. A primer gives your face extra hydration. Primers with natural oils, such as almond oil or jojoba, are particularly nourishing and give a beautiful – there it is again – glow. In addition, a primer also works well if you have a lot of red tones in your skin.
