Although many people love makeup, a few also worry that it can cause harm to their face. Whilst certain ingredients can clog up your pores (coconut oil is, unfortunately, quite the villain), there are some incredible products out there that actually help with skin issues. Ahead are 5 primers that will lock down your makeup, whilst benefiting your complexion.

1. Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

This decadent formula combines the magic of a makeup primer with that of a moisturiser. Composed of ingredients such as shea butter and squalane, it works to deeply hydrate your skin, whilst creating a smooth base for your foundation.

3. MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect Lotion SPF 50

By now, we all know the importance of wearing sunscreen every day. However, if you aren’t a fan of adding another step to your beauty routine, you should consider investing in this lotion. Not only does it protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, but also delivers a soft, blurring effect.
