A melt-in smoothing primer with innovative blurring and filling technology for a youthful appearance perfectly primed for makeup application.

Turn back the hands of time with Tarte's timeless smoothing and filling primer formulated to fade out your biggest beauty boundaries such as large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant-rich formula infused with vitamins C & E and green bean extract gently melts into the skin delivering a surge of moisture, peptides and other naturally-derived elixirs for a firmer, smoother appearance. You'll love the lightweight texture and fresh powder scent as it provides the perfect blank canvas to enhance the look and wear time of makeup. It can also be worn alone as part of your skincare regimen, blurring out skin imperfections and signs of aging for a flawless, soft-focus finish.

Powered by:
  • Vitamin E: Natural preservative that also acts as an anti-inflammatory emollient and antioxidant
  • Vitamin C: Antioxidant that fights free radical damage and premature signs of aging while brightening skin
  • Green bean extract: Known for anti-wrinkle and pore minimizing properties
  • Mineral pigments: Soothe and soften skin

Smooth a pearl size amount over skin before applying makeup or wear alone as a treatment to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.

    Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

    I really love this primer. I have large pores and had previously been using the Benefit Porefessional primer, which was great, but this one seemed to give me a lot smoother of a finish. I had been wanting to buy it forever after swatching it on my hand in store because it just smoothed out all the lines on the back of my (admittedly dry) hands. I finally took the plunge and bought it and I absolutely love it. It blends so easily into my skin and it just makes my skin feel and look so much better. It really gives me a great base for my make up.

            This is very different from other primers I've tried (and I've used several). It is very thick. It doesn't glide on like other primers. It also feels heavy on the skin. Once in place, it stays on all day. I have oily skin and this keeps my skin matte all day. Overall I would recommend.

                Comments about Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer:

                I've been playing around with different primers, and so far this has been the best. It works with a spectrum of foundations and BB cremes, and really helps them wear through out the day. You don't need much of the product, and it applies smoothly to the skin. The only draw back was the mild perfume sent it gives off. If you have a sensitive nose, it may bug you when you initially put it on, but the smell fades quickly.

                    Our timeless & poreless primers are both great for tartelettes with combination skin since they help blur the appearance of pores and absorb excess oil without drying out the skin.
