Shop Face Primers


Blur the lines between makeup and skin care by applying a face primer during your beauty routine. Face primers not only help to smooth makeup application and extend makeup longevity but can contain skin-loving ingredients to tackle skin care concerns such as dullness, dryness, and redness. We offer a large range of face primers, so no matter if you want to boost luminosity, minimise the appearance of enlarged pores, increase skin hydration or control excess oils, you can find a face primer which will improve both your skin care and makeup routines.

 

When applying face primer, we recommend you use it after you have moisturised your skin and before you apply your makeup. Face primers can also be used on their own without makeup, particularly ones which have specific skin care benefits. Be careful not to apply too much primer though as this may clog your skin especially if your primer contains silicones.

 

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer is a favourite amongst Adore Beauty customers, especially for those with oily skin types. Using advanced adaptive silicones, the blurring primer leaves skin with a matte finish and allows makeup to adhere for longer. The Ordinary High-Spreadability Fluid Primer is another firm favourite. The lightweight serum-like primer helps even the most heavy-duty makeup apply seamlessly to the skin, while providing non-oily hydration for a dewy finish.

 

The iconic Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer - GOLD has gained beauty cult status, known and loved for its skin-nourishing formula which conditions the skin while calming redness and irritation. Perfectly prepping the skin, the high-performance primer creates a smooth and healthy canvas for makeup application.

Perfect primer!

This primer is so nourishing, and the ingredients are so good for you, and ethical as all are certified organic and cruelty free. This primer smells wonderful, and is long lasting and really grips the foundation.

Amazing for the price!

Who would have thought such an affordable primer would be so amazing?!
I was a bit worried about it making my skin oily, but it definitely didn’t. Made my skin look smooth and helped The Ordinary foundation stay on really well - such a great combo.
