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.
