Smashbox Photo Finish 24-Hour Shadow Primer is an eye shadow primer that locks on shadow and maximizes color vibrancy for 24 hours.

Benefits:
  • Keeps your eye shadow in place and vibrant all day
  • Glides a smooth base onto lids that makes applying every type of shadow a breeze
  • Acts like glue (without the ew) to lock on shadow
  • Sweat- and humidity-resistant formula prevents budging, fading and creasing
  • Cruelty-free

Smashbox tested this primer during day-long shoots at their L.A. photo studio - and in women's real lives. It's proven to last for full 24 hours, whether you're at an A.M. yoga class or after-hours drinks. It works great with oily lids and locks on even the most shimmery shadows.

Formulated without Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Phthalates & Fragrance.

Warm a thin layer between fingertips and apply to bare lids. Let set for 30 seconds, then apply shadow. Going for a cat eye? Don't forget Photo Finish 24 Hour Shadow Primer on the outer corners.

                      Hi There! Apply a small amount of 24 Hour Photo Finish Eyeshadow Primer with your fingertip and allow 60 seconds to dry. Then set it with a light dusting of an eyeshadow base.

                      Hi There! Smashbox does not make hypoallergenic claims. The 24 Hour Photofinish Eyeshadow Primer will not accentuate wrinkles, rather it helps to smooth and soften the appearance of the eyelid.
