Prepping your skin before putting on your foundation is a major step. Here’s why; adding this element to your daily makeup routine not only helps your makeup last longer but it also creates a protective barrier over your skin. A good primer formula combines the benefits of both skin care and cosmetics and is always non-comedogenic. Here are some of the best primers for sensitive skin:
