Hydrate

If you have dry skin, mattifying primers aren't your best option. Instead, try Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Drops Makeup Priming and Highlighting Oil. Use it to moisturize and prime before applying makeup, or add a few drops to your foundation.

Illuminate Your Comlexion

To get a gorgeous luminescent look, combine an illuminating primer like Cover FX Illuminating Primer with a light-catching highlighter. (We recommend these no-filter-needed highlighters.)

Calm Redness

Instead of applying layers of concealer to redness, try a color-correcting primer. (But first, get to the bottom of the cause of your skin's redness.) Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer SPF 20 contains calming oat extracts to soothe skin and green botanical extracts to counteract redness.

Ready Eyes

Prevent the dreaded eye crease by swiping on an eye primer like Arell Beauty in Her Prime before applying eye shadow. Your shadow will stay in place and maintain a more saturated shade.
