The Importance of Face Primers
Do you ever get extremely upset when you finally get your make-up to look “on point”, then after an hour or so you sweat off your foundation which, in turn, drags that beautiful sculpting job you’ve done? Well, I can tell you right now that it’s not the result of the price of make-up. You could be wearing NYC or Chanel and the outcome would still be the same.

Face Primer? What in the heck is that?
In the past year or two, major companies have spent an ample amount of time and money to develop primers with the perfect formula for consumers. Many of you that visit beauty stores with issues regarding makeup not lasting through the day are told by a beauty adviser that what you need is a make-up primer. No, it’s not a ploy to empty your bank account. After trying it, you’ll see what I mean when we say it’s important to have one in your kit.
Not only will primers help your makeup stay put, but they can be used for other purposes as well. Smashbox is one of the leading brands in the primer bearing family. They produce many different versions of the same product. The Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer is applied after your moisturizer, but under your face make-up. If you have problems with redness, large pores, signs of aging, dark spots, oily or dry skin — you name it and they provide the product you need.
I personally use Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer to help hide the texture imperfections on my face. The silicone in the products fill all of the unwanted nooks and crannies, leaving a smooth canvas for your makeup.
Stay you, stay beautiful!
