Best Primers for Oily Skin

One of the most common things I always get asked is which products are best for oily skin. Everyone wants a flawless finish however for those with oily skin it can be tricky to maintain as the day goes on.

What are primers and how do they work?

A primer is applied to the to skin after cleansing and moisturiser and before foundation. Primers can do anything from illuminate, mattify, blur or just hold makeup in place, so its important that you choose one that is going to do what you need it to. For oilier skin we want to create a matte velvety base for your makeup to sit on. Te primer is going to act as a barrier between your skins oils and your makeup to keep shine at bay.
