Primers under makeup have been a craze for years, but StyleBakery beauty editor Mickey Williams claims this is the best she's seen. Oil-free and weightless, this super-smoother leaves a barely tinted eggshell opacity on skin while filling in fine lines. Makeup stays on and gives any skin type or tone its maximum appeal. And best of all, it works on just about everyone.
With anti-oxidants, vitamins A and E, Green Tea and Grape Seed extract, this weightless oil-free primer fills in fine lines and wrinkles, prevents collagen breakdown and gives the skin a silky smooth, long lasting, flawless base.
