Best Face Primer For Oily Skin With Large Pores in India : Drugstore & High End Options!
For years I heard that the makeup artists apply the ‘base’ before applying the foundation for coverage. I always wondered what the ‘base’ actually does for the skin. That is when I read about the miracle called a face primer. Primer acts as a wonder base for makeup – it mattifies the skin, smoothens the pores, controls oil and prepares the perfect surface for applying makeup that will last longer. While some primers impart a certain glow for dry and dull skin, majority of them control oil and smoothen the skin to minimize large pores. So today, we are going to tell you our Top 10 Best Face Primers For Oily Skin & Large Pores in India!

1) Colorbar Perfect Match Primer – Rs 825
This is the best affordable primer in India that works better than many higher priced variants. The primer has a gel texture which settles down with a mattifying look. This silicone based primer keeps the skin oil free and the makeup lasts all day long without getting messy or greasy in the humid climate as well. It smoothens and softens the skin and the difference in pores is amazing. Beauties with oily skin would adore this and Lisha once remarked it is the best dupe of Benefit Porefessional, only this one didn’t break her out!
