9 best primers to help your makeup last all day

L Oreal True Match Glow Lotion

Since summer, when my skin is oiliest,  L'Oreal Lumi Glove under my foundation and concealer. It hasn't pilled or slipped my makeup, my main concern.

Fenty Beauty Primer

Loving Fenty's mini Pro Filt'r primer! Noticeable difference in makeup look and feel. Affordable, no white cast on darker skin tones. Great buy!

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

This primer is what you need if you want your makeup to literally grasp onto your skin and stay on for as long as possible.

Maybelline Master Prime

Maybelline's drugstore primer is a winner! SPF 30, flawless under makeup no shine, bumps, or sliminess. Comparable to Smashbox's Photo Finish Mattifying Primer.
