It definitely depends on your skin type. For me, my skin is super oily and very acne prone and sensitive. So I tend to spend more on primers than i would usually spend on other products. Primer is essential for me, as it's the base and a big help in controlling my oiliness. I always say that skin care products and primers are what i spend my money on the most. As far as setting sprays, if you have a great primer, you really only need a setting spray if you go out clubbing or something often, where you'll be wearing makeup super long or during activities that would make you work up a sweat. But a good setting spray definitely doesn't hurt, and i've found quality to only be in the higher end brand ones.:)
Primer? Yes, especially in the summer when you live in a place that can be very humid. Setting sprays? I think if your skin is oily, possibly. I've never owned one and don't plan to.
I use a primer to smooth and even the texture of my skin, as well as help the makeup stick. I have pretty acne-prone, oily skin, and a primer really helps things go on smoothly without so many little bumps showing through. And I like to use a setting spray, but I haven't noticed a huge difference now that I just wear powder and not liquid foundation. I need some help because I drum a lot and work outside, so without primer and spray my face might just melt off! But if you work an office job in the air conditioning or you don't do much physical activity, then you probably don't need them.
Thank you everyone!
