The best hydrating primers to smooth and plump your complexion

The best hydrating primers to smooth and plump your complexion

Dry skin can be your foundation’s worst enemy. As base products often cling to and accentuate dry patches of skin and rough texture, a dry complexion can leave your base looking uneven and less than perfect,

Prepping your skin with a hydrating primer is the perfect way to smooth your complexion before applying your favourite base product.

To help you find your glow-inducing, moisturising primer, we’ve curated a list of our favourite primers for dry skin to ensure your base looks perfect all day long.
