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 and 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:

      Was a little doubtful when I first applied but 5 minutes later realized this is going to be a regular in my tool bag. Although it feels very liquidy and almost seems too light to do anything it, it actually blends really well. Just a but goes a long way. Whether you wear it alone on bare skin or underneath full coverage makeup the eye brightening pay off is fantastic. You're left with a fresh, bright eyed look. Overall, great long lasting product.

            This item was too liquidy to apply, and therefore wouldn't blend or stay on. No coverage at all and a total waste of money

                  I've seen some poor reviews saying the product doesn't work, doesn't do anything, doesn't cover, etc. This product is supposed to be applied UNDER your under eye concealer. It is a "brightener", not a concealer. It won't hide your dark circles, but it will shine through your concealer, hence brightening your eyes. I apply it all over my face BEFORE I apply my foundation and concealer because I have dry skin and I like to be shiny. Hope this helps!

                      Hi There! The Photo Op Under Eye Brightener is an illuminator that highlights and brightens the under eye. The Hydtrating Under Eye Primer creates the perfect base for concealer so it will last and last without caking or creasing.
