These 9 Primers Will Help You Beat a Makeup Meltdown

I've always been rather smug about my skin. I rarely break out, hardly ever suffer from any reactions and considering I still get ID'd at the age of 26, I must be doing okay in the wrinkle department. But last year, I started to notice that something wasn't quite right about my skin. It was 3 p.m. on a Monday afternoon, and I caught sight of myself in the mirror in the office bathroom. Not only did I find that the foundation I had so painstakingly buffed and blended that very morning was nowhere to be seen, but in its place was a large veil of beaming shine. And no, we're not talking the pretty, dewy, post-gym kind. I had developed oily skin.
