Glossies, you’ve got to admit you’ve noticed the change in temperature… We hate to say it, but winter is fast approaching. Which means there’s no better time to give your skin a little extra TLC.As you know, priming is an essential step in your makeup routine. Of course, it’s important for keeping your full face in place all day. But, infused with skincare ingredients (that have huge benefits!), primers also have the ability to leave your skin feeling hydrated, nourished and radiant.So to prevent dry skin and promote radiance, even on the coldest of days, we've rounded up some of our favourite primers that will provide you with lasting hydration. And they’re all under £10!

The Best Hydrating Primers Under £10!

From big-name brands you'll love, here is our take on the best hydrating primers under £10.

Lottie London Coconut Primer

For around £5, the gorgeous smelling Lottie London Coconut Primeris enriched with coconut to thoroughly hydrate your complexion. It’s sure to become your new winter best friend.

One of my favourite British brands, Lottie London has created this lightweight formula to give your base that silky, soft, natural radiance you’ll love. As well as hydration, added Micro-Pearls give your skin a dewy finish, all year round! Key skincare ingredient vitamin B5 in this primer also nourishes, while the chamomile extract works to soothe dry skin.

NYX Professional Makeup Blurring Vitamin E Infused Pore Filler Face Primer Stick

This face primer stick from NYX is the epitome of ‘skincare meets makeup’! With a long list of benefits, this product is truly unbelievable for its price!

For £8, it creates a flawless base for foundation, keeping your makeup looking professional for up to 12 hours. Created with one of our favourite skincare ingredients - vitamin E - on application your complexion will be drenched in hydration! Oil-free too, so no dry skin in sight.

Barry M Cosmetics Primer Water

Five pounds is an absolute steal for this lightweight, refreshingBarry M Cosmetics Primer Water. Not only does it create a flawless base (by minimising the appearance of pores) but it also conditions your skin to prolong your winter makeup.

The fine mist also feels so nourishing and invigorating on application, leaving your face drenched in hydration. We love Barry M for being so consistent and reliable! What more could we want from a brand?

L'Oréal Paris Infallible Magic Essence Primer Drops

Glossies, have you ever tried primer drops? If not, you need to this month! These blue-toned drops use light-diffusing technology to bring dull skin back to life! The lightweight water texture of L'Oréal’s Paris Infallible Magic Essence Primer Drops sinks into the skin quickly, allowing the rich ingredients (Kiwi, Goji, Acai and Hyaluronic Acid) to instantly get to work.

For under £10, this miracle-working must-have brightens, preps and deeply hydrates for up to 24 hours!

Revlon PhotoReady Rose Glow Mist

Superior, unique and knows how to show off what they're good at! We love the Revlon brand. And one of the products we love most from the brand is its PhotoReady Rose Glow Mist.

This primer is full of hardworking ingredients that will benefit your skin this winter... Palm and coconut oils refresh and offer up to 24 hours of hydration. (Yep, you read that right!). This lightweight mist also absorbs quickly, working almost instantly to illuminate and revive dry and dull skin. Dewy and glowing in seconds, your complexion will thank you later.

Revolution Pro Hydra-Matte Fixing Spray

Revolution is everyone's favourite brand for purse-friendly, yet high-quality products. So it’s no surprise this £8 wonder is my new go-to! Formulated to lock your makeup in place all day as well as plumping skin with bags of hydration, the Revolution Pro Hydra-Matte Fixing Spray is a great alternative to a 'classic primer'. Apply before makeup application and again once your look is complete. Why? Because this locks in moisture, even more, all thanks to help from skincare faves hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Your complexion will have a matte yet radiant look in no time!

INC.redible is such an innovative brand and creates unique products time after time, like this Prime and Protect Anti-Pollution Shield Good Day Jelly Spray. Refreshing, cooling and working as a protective barrier over the skin, it firstly helps defend against environmental aggressors (think blue light, pollution, harsh weather).

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
