Beauty Must Have: Smashbox Photo Finish

While the weather in New York is still very much Winter, the stores are brimming with bright and beautiful Spring clothes making my shopping trips a struggle between "do I buy now?" or "do I wait?" While the coming months mean less layers of clothing, it also means less layers of make-up which makes a Sephora-worshiper like myself cringe a little. Before you start peeling off the layers, you MUST get yourself some Smashbox Photo Finish foundation primer. This lightweight serum is full of skin-nourishing ingredients like grape seed extract, vitamins A & E, and green tea to feed your skin while it fills in enlarged pores, small scars, and fine lines/wrinkles to create a flawless finish. In the Winter months, I wear it under my foundation creating a the perfect canvas for my make-up. But in the coming Spring months, I'll be wearing it alone with a swipe of blush and a coat of mascara! If you don't believe me, it was a Best of Sephora product in 2008 and on Marie Claire's list of 25 Products That Will Change Your Life. Bring on Spring!
