I was never much of a foundation primer kinda girl. I just didn’t see the point. It was just an extra step in my makeup regime every morning and frankly every extra minute in bed counts. Yet in recent months my makeup just wasn’t sitting right. I found that my fine lines were becoming a little bit more prevalent and this was stressing me out. When talking to my mother about this problem, she told me she had just the thing. The Smashbox Photo finish light foundation primer. I was more than a little bit dubious.
This primer can be worn alone or over moisturised skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores. It gives your makeup a lovely smooth matte finish and is great for people with oily skin to help keep their foundation in place all day. For those of you that have very dry skin there is a Photo Finish primer with oil. I just find that it doesn’t work as well on my skin as the oil free one does.
As you can see from the picture I have been 100% converted to the power of primers. I have since tried out a few more primers and I just don’t find them as good as the Smashbox Photo finish. It is expensive at €31.50 but it lasts ages and it absolutely worth the money if you want flawless makeup all day.
