Re: primer

If you are already using a good moisturizer, you won't need a primer before the moisturizer. You usually use a primer prior to applying make-up. The purpose of the primer is to act as a palette/background for your make-up to stay on you. A primer is usually a hint of moisturizer with a film former.

I say this because most good moisturizer should have a built-in film former for feel aesthetics already.

Re: primer

Laura Mercier makes awesome primers. There is one that contains oil for more dry skin, I prefer the oil free one, however, I've used both and it helped keep my makeup looking fresh for hours.

Re: primer

I have used the Avon one and everytime I break out with a zit. I like the Laura Geller one better.

Re: primer

Another vote for Laura Mercier primers. Like another poster said, you use a primer before foundation, not before your moisturizer.

Re: primer

I use Smashbox primer. You can find it at Sephora. I have areas of redness so I use the green tinted one. It does seem to help the redness and my make up goes on like velvet once the primer is on!! Primer is such a great product.
