Smashbox Cosmetics has been around providing us with awesome primers, lipsticks, eyebrow makeup, and many more. The brand was born out of a photo studio, the Smashbox Studios in L.A. The founders Dean and Davis Factor (yes, their bloodline is closely connected to the Max Factor—they are his great grandsons) understand the need for perfectly photogenic makeup. It all started when the brothers found themselves disappointed in the outcome of the models' makeup during a photo shoot.
Fast forward to today—this day and age of selfies—Smashbox spoils us with primers that vanish pores and allow for everyday makeup to look always, well, camera-ready.
We decode one of the brand's best-selling primers, Photo Matte Anti-Shine Primer (P1500), to give you more reasons to love it.
