THE MAKEUP WARS TEAM PICKS THE BEST FACE PRIMER & FOUNDATION PAIRINGS

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

The Makeup Wars! Team is currently featuring our favorite face primers and foundation pairings, but I could only pick my favorite primer that I pair with all of my foundations and tinted moisturizers. It isn't that I don't love particular foundations– it's that I love so many of them, but their one unifying force is the primer that I pair with each of them– which is the HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer.

Among the foundations and tinted moisturizers that I routinely pair with this fantastic primer are: HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick (Reviewed HERE), HOURGLASS Veil Fluid Makeup (Reviewed HERE), Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation (Reviewed HERE), TOM FORD Beauty Traceless Foundation SPF 15 (Discussed HERE), TOM FORD Beauty Traceless Foundation Stick (Reviewed HERE), NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (Reviewed HERE) and Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation (Discussed HERE). The HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is my go-to primer for the aforementioned foundations and tinted moisturizers because it gives them a perfected finish, radically enhanced longevity, and their textures pair perfectly.

HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer is an ultra-luxe complexion perfecting primer that glides across the skin like velvet. It creates an even and ultra-smooth finish, it reduces redness and the appearance of fine line and pores, it provides the skin with SPF 15 protection, and it creates a perfect canvas for your foundations and tinted moisturizers. Furthermore, it markedly increases the wear-time of your makeup, but perhaps one of the most satisfying aspects of using this primer is that it has the most luxurious silky texture that HOURGLASS aptly describes as airy and cloud-like. This tactile experience makes its use heavenly, and addictive! While it is white in the bottle, it blends into the skin invisibly and leaves behind no white residue.

According to HOURGLASS,

The perfect complexion starts with Veil Mineral Primer. As the first step in your makeup routine, it creates the ideal canvas for your makeup to effortlessly slide on and stay on for all-day wear. The silky, weightless texture smooths and evens out the skin for perfect application and wear every time. It’s the one product that will elevate your foundation to unprecedented performance.

Elevate your foundation to unprecedented performance with this state-of-the-art primer that extends the wear of foundation for a perfect complexion that lasts. With a texture unlike any other, this oil free primer not only creates a smooth, even canvas for makeup, but also conceals redness, minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and provides broad spectrum SPF 15 protection, all in a supremely airy, silky, cloud-like texture.
Features:
• Multipurpose primer goes beyond traditional formulations, concealing redness (even rosacea) to even skin tone, while minimizing the look of visible pores, fine lines and imperfections.
• Creates a smooth, even surface so that foundation effortlessly glides on and stays on for all day makeup wear.
• First of its kind primer, with an airy, silky cloud-like texture, layers onto skin without added weight or a greasy after feel
• Delivers broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection with mineral-derived sunscreens, Titanium and Zinc Oxide.
• Oil free formula is appropriate for all skin types, even sensitive, blemish-prone skin.
• Repels water so makeup looks freshly applied all day long.
• Vegan

  2. So interesting to see your faves. Hourglass Mineral Veil is one of my faves along with the very similar No. 50 Primer Serum from IT Cosmetics. My favorite foundation is Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint.

    1. I love their No. 50 primer as well! I still ned to try their Hyaluronic Skin Tint– your review of it convinced me to try it long ago, but I have too many foundations to justify a purchase at the moment!

  3. I should get this in the smaller size to try out. The only liquid primer I have in use is also from Hourglass. I think they are the standout brand for primer.
