BEST Face Primer Ever!
For the rockstar ladies who dominate your every day, your outings, events and daily whereabouts... you will appreciate this! NEWS FLASH - having a great make-up primer can make a really big difference for applying and maintaining your make-up all day. As a mommy of a 2.5 year old, using fancy products are the last thing I tend to spend my money and time on.....until I looked in the mirror LOL. #Yikes
ONE THING is for certain, I am definitely not a professional make up artist (far from it LOL), so I'm not the best person to ask about which products are best for YOUR particular skin, but I do know what products have worked super well for my skin type (I'm a tad on the dry side with little/few breakouts)....and which products I prefer for certain occasions.
I'm lucky to have several amazing Make-up artists friends that help glam me up for my events, so they have tried numerous products on my skin to the point where I know which work really based on the fact if my make-up is still in tact by the end of the night. Then there are times where I do my own make up for events ...which is where I've found that a quality face primer makes a HUGE difference when applying it!
I didnt realize years ago why I needed 46 different products for my daily routine (ok that's a bit of an exaggeration) to put on my face especially when I only have 7 minutes to get ready and fly out the door....and now as a Mompreneur (working at home with an active kiddo is no joke) I have to make the best of those 7 minutes (if I even get that much time) to do my make-up well .....and have it last the entire day.
This is where SMASH BOX comes in!
Nope, this isn't a sponsored ad...just a lady who really did her research. I've tried quite a few Face Primers ranging from drugstore brands, to high end beauty counter brands at the department store, to online beauty company brands, to "subscription boxes," to "at-home party" brands... but my FAVORITE brand off all of them has been the Smashbox Face AND Eyeshadow Primers. OMG- game changer, lifesaver, all of it!
WHY use a Makeup primer? Isn't just another step?
I thought the same thing for soooo long, until I realized it takes less than a minute to apply AND it helps make my make-up LOOK more polished and LASTS longer throughout the day. BOOM
