When picking a primer, it's crucial to cater to your skin type. 'I choose my primer based on skin type', advises Hector Espinal, Fenty Beauty Make-Up Artist. 'For dry skin, look for sodium hyaluronate (or hyaluronic acid) as an ingredient, because it nourishes and hydrates skin to provide a really natural finish.'

Here, see the primers recommended for moisturising dry skin.

Clé de Peau Beauté Long-Lasting Hydrating Veil

Clé de Peau’s sublime primer will keep dry and flaky patches at bay from morning to night. The lightweight milk might sink in seamlessly, but it’ll be working hard to keep your skin super-hydrated for hours.

Tatcha The Liquid Silk Canvas Primer

A lot of ‘blurring’ primers tend to highlight dryness and flaking patches, but Tatcha’s Liquid Silk Canvas is the perfect middle ground. It’s silicone-based, so does a great job of masking enlarged pores and lines, yet is balanced out with hydrating ingredients that’ll keep a thirsty complexion satisfied.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

For a gleam that shows through your foundation, it has to be Charlotte Tilbury’s multi-use Hollywood Flawless Filter. A highlighter-primer hybrid, this pigmented formula lights up dull, dry skin, and looks great either worn solo or beneath a liquid base.

Glossier Futuredew

Our love for this Glossier’s product knows no bounds. Futurdew is billed as an ‘oil-serum’ hybrid. Trust us: the best way to employ this dewy wonder product is by smoothing a very light layer beneath foundation: the result is that elusive mega-moisturised effect that you usually only get after a facial.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Hydrating Primer

When it originally launched, Fenty Beauty was firmly focused on creating a matte complexion, so the dry-skinned among us rejoiced when this hydrating powerhouse joined the line-up. A tall glass of water for dehydrated skin, it feels deliciously cooling and will make your foundation apply flawlessly.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Start Hydrating Serum Primer

This unusual formula contains tiny droplets of oil suspended in a base of cooling humectants. Without falling back on silicones, it manages to smooth and prep skin for foundation, ensuring your base applies flawlessly.

Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Face Primer

This smart multitasker contains brightening yellow pigment to unify skin tone, and a hefty dose of squalane to quench a dry skin surface. Wear it alone for a quick luminosity boost, or layer it beneath a light foundation.

NYX Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer

This bouncy jelly primer feels so cooling and quenching on eternally thirsty skin. It's water-based and completely clear, so a good one for layering under a glowy foundation, and puts a complete stop to those caky patches that develop throughout the day.
