You know the frustration when you look in the mirror mid-afternoon to find your make-up has all but vanished? It’s one of the sure signs of spring.

As the weather warms up and the sun starts beating down, your skin will naturally produce more oil, meaning your foundation can very easily slide off your skin. And whilst that may not be a problem for you clear skinned ladies (and trust us, we’re very jealous) some of us need a little more help in keeping our skin looking flawless.

For beauty novices, a primer may be foreign territory but it’s a make-up artist’s essential for keeping foundation in tact – and this Smashbox photo finish primer is one of the best on the market. 

Smooth onto your skin before your foundation and this dream product will not only keep your foundation in place all day, but it will also smooth fine lines and large pores. It’s full of nourishing antioxidants and vitamins, too, and the oil-free formula means it can even be used on spot-prone skin.

Once you use this product, you’ll never look back – and you can say goodbye to sweaty holiday and festival photos once and for all.
