Today I will share my top favorite skin primers as I am a huge fan of Primer and never start my makeup without preparing my skin with a primer that helps to smooth fine lines and open pores on my face. Primers are made to act as a base for makeup to sit in and considered essential for flawless and long-lasting makeup.

One of the famous MAC products. It comes in a liquid form in a spray bottle completely different from traditional primers. One 100ml bottle can last for up to one year and you need to spray it before starting your makeup to prep your skin.

It will smooth your skin and gives you a glow that will last long for the whole day. Many makeup artists use it before, during, and after completing the makeup to keep it on the place for long hours and swear by it.
