Product Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Reduced Redness Primer

This is a colour correcting primer with many benefits

Post written by Leanne Perilly

This Product is from the Smashbox Photo Finish priming range which means it’s a highly effective make-up base by smoothing the skin, reducing the look of pores and lines in preparation for foundation application, and ensuring make-up stays put all day. 

It also reduces the look of redness in the skin with its green colour tones it down but is so light that it can be used alone or underneath foundation. I find it makes skin look smoother and more even immediately. 

It’s suitable for all skin types and performs well in all conditions, it’s the perfect make-up base for all ages too. You don’t need to use lots of it so it the tube lasts a long time, a smaller version is available to buy for travel or to test out. 

Contouring and highlighting is a case in point.  Should you bother trying to sculpt the perfect Kate Moss-esque cheekbones, or just leave all that to the youngsters? After all, contouring and highlighting can seem scary if you’ve never attempted them before.  They are fairly recent sculpting techniques that would not have been part of a staple make-up routine for somebody aged over 40.  Meanwhile, teenagers and women in their 20s and 30s seem to perfect it with ease.
