Face Primer and bareMinerals

I had just recently purchased the bareMinerals Starter Kit and was wondering if I could maybe use a different face primer with it... maybe something better or cheaper?

I love some of the BE products but never liked any of the primers. My personal recommendation would be Smashbox photo finish primer. I have acne prone skin so I use the light version with zero trouble. Another option would be the Laura Mercier primer, or to go less expensive try the Victoria secret face primer. 



I really like the Smashbox primer. It feels so silky and definitely does a good job. I'm not sure about the price though.

Hi LindzNitram,


You can also try the hourglass mineral veil primer it's a really good primer and one of Sephora's best sellers. Hope this helps!Smiley Happy

I also never liked the primer that came with the BE, I use the MUFE HD photo finish or Smashbox primer.  Iuse the green one to combat redness I have in places.  Not cheaper but better.
