It’s almost April, and while it’s my favorite time of year it’s also time for a bit of makeup strategy. Warmer weather means the dreaded “makeup slide” will once again become a daily reality. You know what I’m talking about. You get a bit too warm, start to perspire a bit… the next thing you know your makeup is everywhere but where it was intended. This is precisely what shadow primers like Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer are all about. Not only does this lid primer hide imperfections, the formula keeps shadow perfectly in place.
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer is available in five shades to ensure a solid match for every complexion. Each tube is equipped with a flat, angular sponge applicator. Once applied to the lids, simply blend and allow the product to set. Then apply shadow, and you’re set! Pro-tip: in a pinch this product can also be used as a concealer! My personal challenges are some red capillaries, and this product hides them masterfully!
Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer swatches above from left to right: Dark, Medium, Light, Smoke, and White. Smoke and White shades are intended to transform your shadows. Smoke deepens the color of shadows, and helps give more body to sheer shadows. White intensifies shadows, and is the best friend of those vivid shadow colors you really want to pop.
Retail price is $21 per tube.
