Ask Belle: Prep and Prime
Oct 26, 2010
Hi Belle-Could you offer any suggestions for a foundation primer, a new moisturizer, or something similar. I have textbook combination skin, with extremely dry in some areas and the T-Zone and sides of my nose being the oiliest. As we enter into the winter I know my skin will continue to dry out…compliments of the turn of the century heating system in my apartment building (only a slight exaggeration) but the oil will continue. I’m currently using Smashbox Photo Finish primer, but I’m not sure if that’s best and still doesn’t give me the “results” I want…any suggestions?Thank you so much for all your daily advice through the blog. I really enjoy reading it.Thanks! Whitney
This is by far the best primer that I have ever tried. It is light, non-greasy and it really helps the makeup hold on. And while it’s a bit pricey, the tube lasts forever.
Without a doubt, this is the best daytime moisturizer that I have ever tried. It’s light, oil-free and actually moisturizes. I use his pure perfection as a night cream, but this airy cream is perfect for regular use.
