For some women, primers may seem like an unnecessary extra step in their makeup routine, but that’s because they haven’t given the skin-perfecting creams a try. Primers smooth out complexions, minimize pores and keep makeup looking fresh and fabulous all day long. And with gorgeous skin and a “no makeup” look both being huge trends on the runways, primers make it easier to master that barely-there effect. These light-diffusing skin perfectors blur flaws for an evened-out skin tone. Plus, your skin will look and feel supple, uniform and shine-free. Furthermore, you don’t have to drop big bucks at department stores for the best makeup primers. High-quality, budget-friendly versions can be found on the shelves of your local drugstore. Here’s our edit of the 10 best drugstore primers to buy now.
