Ask a Question
Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, Smashbox's best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish.

THE ORIGINAL BLUR
The first step to any great close-up is great skin - skin that's free of fine lines and pores. That's one of the reasons why primer was the first products created at Smashbox Studios. They developed a formula that diffuses the light hitting skin to blur out imperfections for an even, soft-focus look. It also makes makeup look better and last longer. Think of Smashbox's primer as the original blur - and the best way to start your makeup every day.

Winner of 2013 Martha Stewart Weddings Big-Day Beauty Awards and 2012 Nylon Beauty Award.

Apply a dime-size amount to clean or moisturized skin, using fingertips, for complexion perfection. Follow with your favorite foundation. To tame frizzies, try smoothing primer through wet or dry hair.

          I love this primer but unfortunately I can't wear it everyday because it causes breakouts. It definitely makes a good photo finish that makes my skin look completely smooth and helps keep the makeup on...forever. Love it!!!

                  Under CC cream for excellent primer coverage, but do not like the tube. Hard to get the bottom portion out. Would prefer a jar.

                      Just a pea sized amount is needed for your entire face, so one tube should last you a long time!

                  • Q:

                    Will this work as a primer for the whole face? And will it also help control oil particularly in areas such as the nose and lids?

                      A:

                      Photo Finish Foundation Primer should be applied all over the face for best results. It is not indicated for use on the eye area and is not recommended to be applied to the eyelids. This product is oil-free and does help to control excess oil.
