Use an alkyd oil primer 97% the color you want for your top coat. Latex top coat ( 2 coats ). Use Benjamin Moore for both and you'll be happy with the finished product.

Just a note about my experience. The light yellows do not cover as well as other colors because of a lack of tint in them. It might be something to consider.
