          I use an IT flawless foundation brush to apply all over my face. It works great to even out my dark spots and freckles. I use my IT CC foundation over it and it looks great and natural; not spackly or clay like. Only complaint is it kind of balls up on my brush but I'm sure if you apply by hand it wouldn't do that.

              I use this primer under IT cosmetics CC cream which can be a bit greasy and does not stay on well without a primer.
              This is the best primer I've found and I've used many.

                      Is this the best primer to cover up acne dark spots. I have smashbox radiance and love it. Just wondering before I buy this one if it would change color skin where I would need a new foundation color.
