Can I mix paint primers?
I think you’ll be fine, although I’d only mix primers of the same kind, i.e. water-based, etc. I’d just use them individually and then move to the next one. I’ve been mixing and matching primers all over the house for different scenarios, sometimes right next to one another (or even one OVER another). No problems.
Can I use different types of primer?
There are three basic types of primers: oil-based, latex and pigmented shellac primer. Each has its strengths and weaknesses and works best on certain surfaces and in particular circumstances.
Can you mix brands of primer?

Can you layer two different primers?
Primers are built for layering, so if you have multiple skin concerns, feel free to layer different primers. Based on your skin type (oily, normal or dry), the right primer will smooth over fine lines and wrinkles, seal pores and increase the longevity of foundation—every makeup lover’s dream.
Can you use different brand of primer and paint?
It absolutely matters. The paints aren’t identical. If it’s a home you’re looking to do the right thing with, use the better paint for both coats. All companies have their high and low-quality lines, so don’t just assume that all paints under one brand are better than another brand.
What type of primer should be used?
If you intend to paint the walls a light color, use a white primer. If you want the base coat to be similar to your final wall color, use a tinted primer or add paint to white primer.
What type of primer should I use on my face?
Look for primers with words like “hydrating,” “soothing,” or “replenishing.” Pick a mattifying primer if you have oily skin. If you struggle with excess oil and shine, you want to combat this with your primer. To do so, your best bet is a great mattifying primer that will reduce your skin’s oil production.
