Pregnancy Safe Foundation Primers

List of pregnancy safe makeup primers

I’ve written a lot about skin care products that are safe to use during pregnancy, but not much about other beauty products that are safe to use while pregnant. The product I get asked the most about (after skincare) is definitely pregnancy safe makeup, especially face primers you can use while pregnant.

I’ve resisted writing a post listing pregnancy safe makeup foundation primers, mostly because it is sometimes really hard to find a full list of ingredients for makeup! Companies don’t typically list their full ingredient lists for makeup online like they do for skincare products. After some digging around, I did find a lot of face primer ingredient lists!

Read this before commenting to ask about your product

I have gone through every product’s ingredients list from the brands listed below. If your favorite product isn’t listed (but the brand is) then the product did not meet my pregnancy safe criteria. Note I am reviewing US versions of products, as the majority of my readers are in the US.

Please utilize the list below for products, and if you would like to ask if something is pregnancy safe please provide the product name, an ingredient list and limit yourself to a 2 products. I have readers asking about 20 products sometimes, and as much as I want to help, I simply don’t have enough hours in the day to check so many products. When you comment, please search the comments for your product first (command F will let you search for the name with most browsers) in the comments, I have already answered safety for hundreds of products.

Don’t forget to check out the other articles in my Pregnancy and Nursing Skin Care Guide! Please only ask about foundation primers on this post, you can check other product types on these other posts. I have been getting makeup questions here for the products that are already in these posts. I will no longer answer questions about products on the wrong product type post, it spreads the information out and is a waste of everyone’s time.

      Please refer to the pregnancy safe skincare products, I’ve already checked this product. It is not safe due to chemical sunscreens and salicylates. All of the skincare from Charlotte Tilbury that is safe will be found on that page.
