As a rule, the weather over the past few weeks can be considered changeable at best. At worst, it’s been hot, sticky and humid all at the same time, so keeping my makeup on and looking fresh has been something of a priority! Thankfully, I’ve just discovered Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer Water which is basically magic in spray form!
Packaged in a chic and easy to use spray bottle, the Photo Finish Primer Water is a 3-in-1 product which promises to provide hydration, sheer radiance and primer when applied to skin. In a word, it’s genius! Since the formula is free of alcohol, silicone and oil, it’s the perfect choice if you have dry or sensitised skin like I do, as it won’t clog or irritate.
I’ve I’m doing a more ‘full-on’ makeup look that requires a bit of foundation, I apply a few squirts before I start with my base. The Photo Finish Primer Water has a gorgeous fresh scent which has a hint of melon. When I’ve applied it prior to makeup, my foundation and concealer feel like it just glides on. If I’m having a more natural makeup day, I tend to just apply a spritz once everything is on. The mist feels light and refreshing, and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated with the perfect amount of glow. The magic of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, however really appears as the day goes on. My makeup does. not. move! Seriously, on days I’ve used the Primer Water, I only need to touch up my lipgloss as the afternoon progresses!
