Hi, I'm Christina Farrell with and today's question is, What are the best moisturizing makeup primers?" I'm so glad you ask this because makeup primers are so essential to everyday makeup application and especially for people with dry skin, it really really extends the life of your foundation and makes your skin just glow. So, I couldn't recommend using a primer especially a moisturizing makeup primer. Here are some of my favorites. My all time number one suggestion which is perfect for older skin or mature skin or drier skin is Hourglass Primer No. 28. This is an exquisite. It just feels like a skincare treat and the way that your foundation goes on after is just glides. As you can see, it gives a really beautiful finish to the skin. It's going to fill in those pores. It's going to plump the skin with hydration, really an overall amazing, amazing primer. My next picks are Embryollise which is actually a moisturizer and a primer in one. It's kind of the all one stop shop and there's not one makeup artist I can think of that doesn't have it in their kit or doesn't love it. This sinks into the skin, this gives a really beautiful finish to the skin and for somebody that wants something that's in all in one, this should be your top pick. So, Embryollise is excellent. Another one to look for is a photo finish hydrating. Smashbox has just created this and it's a little bit lighter. So, for these summer days when everything is really hot or if you live in a humid climate, this might be the one for you. As you can see, it gives more of a clean finish. It's very gel-like, so it's going to be very light and hydrating on the skin, kind of like a nice fresh glass of water for your skin. As you can see, once again, it has that beautiful sheen to it. That's what you want to look for. You want to look for something that just gives the skin this kind of really beautiful glow. The many days that I walked out of the house with just primer on 'cause it's just all I need. Do something to refresh the face and make it look more awake. That's it. There's your primers. My name is Christina Farrell of and today's question were. What are the best makeup primers to use for dry skin?"
