Pregnancy Safe Makeup Primers

What makeup and foundation primers are safe to use while pregnant?

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.

Read this before commenting to ask about your product

It is very time consuming to check the ingredients lists for products. This list is for foundation and makeup primers only. There may be more primers listed on the appropriate brand page on the Pregnancy Safe Skin Care page. If you would like to ask about your product, please provide an ingredient list (why? Because a lot of products have similar names and can have different ingredients in different countries, and I only have so many hours in the day.)

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.

          I wouldn’t use this due to the retinol. Definitely not while pregnant, if you’re more conservative some would avoid it while nursing as well.
