I hope you’re all doing well.
So today, I AM SO HAPPY to finally be sharing with you a primer that I love.
I basically have been going through some shit with my makeup for a few months; it just didn’t look good. You know when you get into a complete rut with your makeup, and it just looks bloody awful all the time, and you have no idea what’s going wrong? Yep, that.
I was using the Becca Backlight Primer Filter, which I loved at first, and then it started making my makeup look like the worst thing to ever grace the earth. It has literally unreal reviews left right and centre, but it just ended up not working on my skin.
My makeup oxidised, was crumbling off my face around my nose and cheek area by midday, it looked dry, cakey, patchy…just awful. But I stuck with it, until a gal could do no more.
I used the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer years ago and remembering liking it a lot, but I then wanted to try new primers. Fast forward to now, I reordered it a few weeks ago and PRAISE THE LORD I DID!
This primer has changed my makeup routine through and through; it’s clear and completely weightless on the skin. It’s not a heavy duty, thick, creamy primer that can sometimes make you feel laden with makeup before you’ve even applied your foundation.
It’s like buttery velvet on the skin, and sinks in quickly, giving you a perfect canvas to apply your makeup with.
It contains Vitamins A & E, green tea and grape seed extract. It’s also oil free so it’s ideal for the summer.
A clear gel, you only need a really small amount to cover your whole face, and I just apply it with my finger tips.
Honestly, there’s not much to say about this except it has revolutionised my makeup. It now looks flawless, stays on all day, and doesn’t need topping up. With my previous primer, I was re-doing my powder every hour to try and save how it had crumbled and oxidised all over my nose and cheek area. With this, it just stays put, and I’ll get home from being out all day and it looks as it did in the morning.
A really great investment, that will last so long as you need to use so little. Plus it comes in a handy plastic, squeezy bottle. No smashed glass bottles, no tipping upside down to get product out.
You can get it yourself here – I promise you that you won’t regret it.
All my love BGP xx
