primer for oily to normal skin?

I'm not a huge believer in primers but I have never given them a fair shot. Since I started wearing makeup the closet thing to a primer that I've ever used is moisturizer. Does anyone have any recommendations of a primer for oily to normal skin? I don't really know where to start 😕 

thank you!

Re: primer for oily to normal skin?

Optical Illusion Complexion Primer by Urban Decay, I have combination skin and even in my oiliest spots, this is by far the best primer I have ever used! It blurs imperfections, brightens my face, and minimizes the appearance of my pores. My makeup stays in place all day even if I forget setting spray. I have also tried it when I forgot my eye shadow primer, but found it didn't work as well on my eye lids as it does on the rest of my face, but to be fair that's not its intended purpose. A little goes a long way so even though it might be on the pricier side it will last you months, so you will definitely get your moneys worth!
