I have normal-dry skin and am looking for a primer that will give a glow or brightening effect -but no sparkles- from under my tinted moisturizer (usually I use the korres watermelon tinted moisturizer). I do a lot of physical activity (which is why I wear the korres tm since it's waterproof) so it would be great if the primer would help my tinted moisturizer last throughout the day. Thanks!
Here are a few that I think you may like:
MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microperfecting Primer in 0 neutral or 7 pink.
If none of these work for you, there's always the DIY way. all you have to do is add a pinch of a shimmery light pink, soft gold, or white eyeshadow to a few drops of your tinted moisturizer
I second the MUFE primer in pink -- it's brightening, but not at all sparkly. However, if you want your makeup to last all day, with physical activity, a transfer-resistant foundation may be the better route instead of a tinted moisturizer.
I second the MUFE HD Pink Primer, it gives a beautiful luminous finish without being sparkly or intense and is fantastic for brightening up the skin.
My second favorite is the Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion -Brightening which is very lightweight on the skin and leaves a flawless and smooth finish.
