Which primers work best with water-based foundations?
Asked 6 months ago
Hey all, I've recently switched to a water-based foundation, but I'm noticing that my current primer doesn't seem to mesh well with it. Has anyone else faced this issue? Can you recommend primers that pair effectively with water-based foundations? I'm hoping to get that flawless finish without any complications. Thanks for your insights!

This is a common issue; fortunately, there are various primers that create a great base for your foundation. Here are three:
- Dermablend Insta-Grip Jelly Primer: This is a higher-end primer that helps your foundation stay on all day and gives you a smooth canvas to apply foundation on.
- Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer: This lightweight primer will give you a glow and simultaneously hydrate your skin. This is a great option if you prefer a dewy foundation finish.
- NYX Professional Makeup Plump Right Back Serum and Primer: This is an inexpensive water-based primer that is great if you have very dry skin and don’t want your foundation to stick to dry areas.
A rule of thumb you should follow is to choose primers that have similar ingredients as your foundation. In this case, it is best to opt for water-based primers to pair with your water-based foundation.
