Ask a Question

Because concealer alone sometimes just doesn't cut it, Smashbox developed this breakthrough to prep for application that immediately wakens and brightens skin. PHOTO OP can be used on any area of the face to highlight and add radiance, too.

Formulated without parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, phthalates & fragrance.

Before concealer, apply under eyes and blend out using fingers. For a lifted and youthful appearance, highlight the inner corners of the eye and orbital bone. You can even fake a plump pout by dabbing on the top of the cupid's bow.

    Comments about Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener:

    I've been using this in place of concealer for 10 years. Because it's so lightweight, it naturally settles into skin and brightens dark circles, as opposed to covering them. I LOVE this product!

            I have dark under eye circles that can't seem to be corrected or covered up well. I use this on top of my concealer to give my under eyes a brighter look. I have been using it for a couple years and haven't found another product like it.

                      I'm on the darker side of olive skin and have dark under eye circles. I love how this reflects light and removes shadows and darkness. I have oily skin and it lasts all day. IT's the first concealer that works on my circles.
