If you have a problem with your eye shadow creasing half-way through your day, look no further. Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer ($20) is all you need. I am an eyeshadow fanatic, but I have really oily skin, so getting my shadow to stay on all day was a serious struggle until I found this primer.
Smashbox wasn’t fooling around when they said “24 hours.” One time, I accidentally slept in my makeup (which I know you aren’t supposed to do), and when I woke up, my shadow was still fully intact. Actually, it still looked so good that I didn’t want to take it off.
This primer is great, because it is both sweat and humidty resistant, so your eyeshadow won’t drip down your face on hot summer days or when you’re at the gym. And since it’s photo compatible, your selfies will always look perfect. If that’s not a relief, then I don’t know what is.
While spending $20 on a tiny tube may seem a little steep, I can assue you that it’s totally worth it, because a little bit goes a really long way. I use my Smashbox primer everyday, and I only have to replace it every 4-6 months. It also makes your shadow colors more vibrant, so you save by using less eyeshadow! So if you want your shadow to look awesome all the time, head over to Sephora‘s Smashbox section.
