Part skincare and part makeup, primer occupies a unique space in the beauty world — and if you have oily skin, you know just how crucial it can be. The best foundations and prettiest blushes might look gorgeous when they first land on your face, but after a few hours in the oily mix, they can frustratingly disappear into the ether (or smear around, emphasize fine lines, and create abstract art when you blot). 

No bueno.

When used correctly, primers create an invisible layer of traction for the rest of your makeup to hold onto, keeping it in place despite currents of sweat and sebum putting up a fight. But choosing the best primer for oily skin isn't easy, and the wrong one can leave you feeling like you just wasted money on a bottle of clear, do-nothing goo. 

To avoid that unhappy fate, we've combed through all the primers on the market to come up with the 10 best for satisfying oily skin, whether they're tamping down shine, coasting over pores, filling in for sunscreen or keeping your makeup intact after eight hours with a mask on.
