Post in Makeup Is Life


I’m looking for a moisturizing primer that doesn’t cause oily skin and helps with dryness. Also, not too expensive.

RE: Primer

Hey so I totally get where you’re coming from! We obviously don’t want our makeup sliding around our face all day! But actually, hydration helps with oily skin. So what if you try some primers with Hyaluronic acid in it! It’s more of a gel so your makeup will stay put but you’ll also get the hydration that you need! Gel primers are great for oily skin! So keep that in mind. I hope I helped!!

Re: Primer

Hi @bball3316 ,


I suggest checking out the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ 1 oz/ 30 mL or the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer 1.35 oz/ 40 mL. I hope this helps! 


Best Wishes,



Re: Primer

I second @SportyGirly125's recommendation. The YSL Blur Primer is my absolute favorite for helping with dryness. It has four nourishing oils in it to hydrate your skin and give it a nice glow!
