Promising Makeup Primers We're Dying To Try

Put your best face forward


Primers are the unsung heroes of the beauty world. With just one simple step, these underrated makeup products help skin become silky and matte so foundations can smoothly glide on. There's really no other way to go about it — building a beautiful makeup look requires a great base. And that's why we're always on the hunt for the best base in the market. Read on to see our picks for new primers that are most tempting to try out.


Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+


SGD62/~USD44.82


When it comes to natural skin-like makeup looks, IT Cosmetics has the right idea. Their range of products not only create an amazing base but is also infused with great ingredients that can protect the skin. The new Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ is formulated to be a makeup magnet with an all-day grip technology that acts as a pore refiner and hydrator as well.


Sui Black Primer Water


SGD42/~USD30.36


Anna Sui’s Sui Black Primer Water is as pretty to look at as it is effective on the skin. This primer serves as both lotion and makeup base, thanks to the large volume of Moist Watery Polymer as well as Pore Cover Powder that creates a layer of moisture that can help maintain the skin's suppleness, conceals pores and smooths out bumpy skin at the same time.


Luminature Glow Cream


SGD195/~USD140.99


A lovely peony-scented product that promises to take care of your skin's tone, texture and radiance while providing a luminous hydrated base is definitely not one to miss. Sulwhasoo’s Luminature Glow Cream is formulated with skullcap root extract, honeysuckle extract and apricot kernel oil into a unique creme brulee texture that can give you an enviable glow when used regularly.


Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer


SGD48/~USD34.70


The world went wild when Fenty Beauty announced the launch of the much-anticipated Pro Filt’r Primer series. Made with a unique blend of agave extract and blurring powders, this primer is said to melt into the skin leaving behind nothing but an airbrushed canvas; the ultimate clean slate.

Illuminating Foundation Primer


SGD68/~USD34.70


Paul & Joe Beaute’s Illuminating Foundation Primer is specially created for Asian skin tones. Its lavender pearls can effectively correct uneven tones — giving you a rosy, fresh glow. This component also reflects light to add glow to your skin and give the impression of a sculpted look to one's features.
