Primers are advisable for people who have combination/oily skin as it helps the skin keep the oil from coming through your makeup. They are usually oil free and also fragrance free so the risk of a reaction is very limited. It also works well on dry and sensitive skin as it nourishes the skin and also calms inflamations that would normally arise with sensitive skin.
A makeup primer should be applied AFTER moisturizer and application should be done with hands to reach those hidden areas. Apply on eyes, lips, nose, forehead or all over face so as to create an even, smooth and easy perfect base for makeup application.
