Smashbox: For the primed and mighty fine!

Smashbox: For the primed and mighty fine!

Prime Time

In my opinion, NO ONE does primers like Smashbox, it's a cult classic. The first primer I ever bought was a Smashbox primer, back then the product came in a glass bottle with a pump. 

Primers act as a protective barrier between make up and the skin. Many people say wearing make up damages your skin, not true. Incorrect application of make up damages your skin. With the rising popularity of highlighting, the delicate skin under the eye are takes a bashing from make up overload, with layers of colour-correcting, long-wearing, tinted concealers, liquid illuminators, setting powders, which some women do as part of their daily make up daily.

The Smashbox Photo finish hydrating under-eye primer gives this very thin and delicate area a little more TLC  applied over your eye cream, by hydrating while minimizing fine lines.  it isn't greasy and is very light weight and fast absorbing. It definitely gives me peace of mind, at the very least, to know that this part of my face is given a bit more protection. Use this sparingly, as too much product on the eye can cause puffiness. I applied two different types of concealer; a liquid Estee Lauder double wear line smoothing crème smoothing concealer on on occasion and on another occasion an ochre MAC pro sculpt cream concealor for highlightlng, on top of which, I set with some Ben Nye Banana powder  My highlighting stayed put and didn't crease or oxides. The product created a smooth canvass for make application and the few fine lines I have 'disappeared'.  The make up didn't dry out and cake up to emhase any lines nor did my conceal or oxides. It lasted my work day and I found that my make up did come off a little earlier with my eye make up remover.

Some may find this product luxe and pricey, to me, it's a necessity. I believe: protect your skin, you have to live in it forever and your peepers will thank you for it.
