Wet N Wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer

This eyeshadow primer is one of my favorites. For a while, I was using the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer, but I found that this works just as well for a fraction of the cost.

When I wear this primer, there are no creases in my eyeshadow and it doesn’t budge at all!

How to Use The Wet N Wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer

Simply squeeze a pea sized amount from the tube (more or less depending on your eyelids – but a little goes a long way!), and evenly distribute across eyelids.

You can let it dry to start applying shadows where blending is needed. You can also apply eyeshadow while its still wet for a higher pigment look – I do this for my glittery shadows to help give them an extra boost!

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

This foundation primer is a top pick for many people. This water based primer will go great with your water based foundation.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Review for Oily Skin

My skin is more on the oily side, and I found this primer to help reduce the shine on my face; However, when I used this I found that it didn’t quite hold my foundation the way I wanted it to.

My foundation was breaking up around my chin area (which is one of my more oily spots). I have since switched foundations, so I may give this another go to see if it was just the combination of the two or if it was really the primer causing the issue.

What Foundation Does the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Work Best With?

This is a water based primer, so you will want to make sure you are using it with other water based foundations. You never want to mix a water based primer with an oil based foundation – and vice versa.

Does Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Cause Breakouts?

As you can tell from the above video tutorial, I have acne prone skin. Mine is primarily hormonal, but is very sensitive and breaks out with certain products.

When I used this foundation, I did not personally see any increase in acne or breakouts on my face.

Everybody’s skin is different, so you may want to compare the ingredients to products you have used before that may have caused you to break out to see if there’s a common link.

How to Use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

You will first want to make sure to clean and moisturize your face, exfoliating to remove any dead skin and leave a smooth finish.

Sqeeze a dime-sized amount and apply to your face evenly. I personally use my fingers for this process.

🧜🏻‍♀️SIREN SECRET: You can also rub a small amount on your fingers and smooth through areas on your hair that have any flyaways to help tame them.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Ingredients

  • Cyclopentasiloxane
  • Dimethicone
  • Dimethicone Crosspolymer

Maybelline Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner

I’ve always been a fan of gel and liquid eyeliners due to their pigment and ability to last throughout the day without smudging (if you find one with the right formula).

I was looking for something new and saw the Maybelline Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner at Target and figured I’d give it a try.

I absolutely loved it! My only complaint was that it seemed to dry out fairly quickly, making it difficult to do a full eye set application with the full pigment that I love.

Maybelline New York Eye Studio Gel Liner

This is the gel liner that I had. been using prior to switching to a liquid pen-style eyeliner.

I was using a precision brush to apply it and it worked like a charm!

My only issue was that it tends to gather in my tear ducts, causing a build up that did not look the greatest – but that may just be due to my eye shape and how far down on my eye line I was applying the product.

What Colors Are Available in the Gel Liner?

You can get this liner in:
