Ingredients. If you’re one who’s a bit sensitive to makeup ingredients, make sure to check for the ingredients list and see if it has anything you might be allergic to.

Consistency. Another thing you must be concerned about when choosing the best makeup primer for you is the consistency. Some prefer a gel-like consistency while some prefer it to be a bit viscous.

Scent. Not all primers are made equally. There are some that have flowery and powdery scents that disappear a few minutes after application, but some have really strong scents that will put off sensitive noses. Opt for primers with little to no scents.
Price. Price is sometimes the reason why people don’t think putting on primers is necessary. Primers come in really small tubes and some people think paying twenty bucks for a product that’s less than an ounce is extravagant. Fortunately, for primers, a little goes a long way.
