A few weeks ago, I stepped into my local Sephora looking for a new primer. I find gel type primers very drying on my face and I was looking for a more moisturizing primer. I came across the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, thanks to one of the sales associates.
At first I wasn’t sold on it as it was primer water, so I wasn’t sure how my makeup would last wearing it but I decided to give it a whirl. Plus, as you may already know, I am a sucker for trying out new makeup products.
I went for the smaller bottle as it wasn’t a product that they could give me a sample of since it was a spray bottle and this way if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t have spent a lot of money.
When I first sprayed it on my face, the primer made my skin feel revitalized right away, it felt so refreshing. The primer reawakens the skin and restores moisture into the skin which is very important. It’s also packed with electrolytes and free of alcohol, oil and silicone (always a plus). My favourite way to use the primer is by spritzing it on my face in the middle of the day to reawaken my look.
How to use the primer: Hold the bottle 8″-10″ away from your face and mist evenly. I first do a T across my face then a X.
This multi-purpose primer doesn’t only moisturize and lock down makeup, here are 4 ways to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water.
The Cannes International Film Festival kicked off this week and the stars delivered some jaw-dropping couture glamour.
The Cannes attendees always bring out the big guns (and jewels) when it comes to the French festival and we expect nothing less.

Lupita Nyong’o – I love when Lupita hits the red carpet because I know she will bring some colour and that she did. Lupita wore a flowy green Gucci gown with floral appliqué. Her bright pout and hair was on point as well.
Other than the Academy Awards, the Met Gala is my favourite red carpet fashion event. This year, the 2015 Met Gala is celebrating the opening of the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition.
Every year, the Met Gala has a theme and with the opening of the exhibition, the focus of the evening was (you guessed it), China! The one thing that I love about the Met Gala is that celebrities and influencers are more willing to take a red carpet risk.
With red, gold and florals being a huge trend during the evening, you can see who made my list of favourite looks below!
