The Primer the Internet Can't Stop Talking About

The queen of primers.

Let's be honest, your makeup is only as good as the primer you're using. A slick, hydrating base is key to a long-lasting look. It may seem like just another product to add to your routine, but it's hands down a total power product. A solid primer is meant to hydrate the face and make you actually get the most out of your foundation and powder. So, which one is highest of the land? We'll give you a hint—it's an Influenster Reviewers' Choice Award-winning product!

Smashbox Photofinish


To sum it up, the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is basically the queen of primers. Fun fact: It was actually the very first product Smashbox created at their photo studios in L.A. It's designed to help makeup look better and last longer.

And, even with so many top-notch products from the legendary brand, this still remains its best-seller. It instantly blurs fine lines and pores, leaving you skin with a velvety-smooth finish. More than 7,000 reviews on Influenster suggest it's seriously an endlessly-lauded product on the market. Here's what Influensters are saying:
