The Highest Ranked Primer Right Now

What would we do without our primers? They help our eyeshadows stay put, keep our moisturizers from slipping, and so much more. But, which primer is best? We asked the editors over at Rank & Style. 

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer the best of the bunch.

Smashbox's primer wins top marks for a few reasons: Not only is it insanely popular, and a favorite among editors, it also gets snaps for its stellar user reviews. On Nordstrom, user LainaSkye says: "This primer is lightweight and leaves my face feeling perfect, smooth, and ready for foundation." We love that its photo-ready finish all but blurs away pores, making our skin look pretty much airbrushed.

Primer is the key to keeping your makeup perfect from morning 'til night, and this one is at the top of the charts. Smooth it on, and you'll see the difference immediately.
