smashbox makeup primer

Here’s what I got for the Sephora VIB sale! I saved up because I wanted to go a bit ham and I’m really happy with everything I got.
SUPER excited that Smashbox is cruelty free now because their primer water is the BEST for my ridiculously dry skin.
I may go back for a second round to get some Drunk Elephant stuff but I’m not sure yet.
What did you all get? I’m always curious to see what people buy during this sale 😊

ghostly-illusions  asked:

Could the ELF cosmetics poreless face primer be a possible dupe for Smashbox's photo finish face primer? I really like smashbox's primer, however paying 36 dollars for it is a little too much for a college student.

I think the best dupe of the Smashbox primer is actually Maybelline Baby Skin.  Both are clear, lightweight primers that blur pores without clogging them.  I might even venture so far to say that the Maybelline primer out performs the Smashbox primer in terms of smoothing the skin to perfection.


Maybelline Baby Skin Face Primer - $6

Hope this helps!

How to Choose a Face Primer

Face primers are fantastic, and even though I don’t wear one every time I do my makeup , if I need my makeup to look last and look flawless all day I’ll use one. Don’t be fooled into thinking they are just another product to buy so brands can get more money, they are much more than that.

In short, primers are amazing products that you apply after you’ve cleansed and moisturised your skin, but before you apply any coverage products like foundation or concealer. Majority of primers are designed to help make your makeup last a lot longer and smooth over the surface of the skin so your makeup applies evenly.

sippngwaterfalls said: do you have tips for under eye concealer and creasing? I’ve tried multiple primers, using a setting powder, etc but it still seems to crease :(

Creasing is one of (in my opinion) the worst traits in makeup, and there’s nothing more annoying than perfectly applying eyeshadow only to find that it’s a hot mess within a few hours or covering your dark circles so they’re nowhere to be seen, only to end up with what looks like intense wrinkles underneath your eyes. Creasing is a pain, but some of these products & techniques could be your saving grace.
