    I clean my face first, add some moisturizer and then apply a few dabs of the magic perfecting base and from there apply my foundation. It works well filling in any creases especially under eyes it leaves a smooth finished look all day.

        I am extremely oily and nothing ever stays on, not even Estee Lauder Double Wear and I have tried several primers, even high end brands. I thought I'd try this out and it worked, even foundations that would immediately dissapear stayed on! For me, it was definitely magic!

          this is such an incredible primer, its super thick so it covers EVERY blemish. I have tried all the expensive primers: smashbox photofinish Benifit Porefessional, and none work as good as this

                    This is the only primer that has worked on my skin (I am oily through the T-zone). It keeps my forehead from becoming shiny and it keeps my makeup on really well. I have tried multiple more expensive primers and have never been as happy as I am with this one. I will continue to use this forever.

                        Hi Cami! Our Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base is not waterproof. You can use this product if you have combination skin. This primer will create a smooth canvas for your makeup. We do not recommend replacing this product with your moisturizer. You should apply your moisturizer first, let it sink in and than apply the primer. We hope this helps!

Apply this product each morning on bare skin after your moisturizer has absorbed completely into skin. Apply dot by dot and blend in a gentle circular motion over the whole face or to targeted areas: Under-eye to smooth over fine lines. Nose and cheeks to minimize appearance of pores and blemishes. T-zone for a matte result. We hope this helps!
