Most of us know that face primer is one of the best ways to insure our makeup stays on longer. The primers pamper the skin and create a protective barrier, they are excellent for people with combination to oily skin. Just apply after moisturiser and let it sink into the skin for a few minutes, and carry on with your regular foundation routine and the best thing we can do is to keep these products on a budget as we can find quite a few extremely expensive.
Of course we want an affordable primer with quality, which it is not very easy to find, so I have five drugstore primers that I tested for under £15. As I said you can find primer for all skin types, condition and skin tones which is perfect for every woman. Let’s say myself for instance, I have a very dry and pale skin so I got on really well with Rimmel Match Perfection.
So let’s get started and check out my 5 best drugstore primers for under £15
