Hey guys! Me again! I’m back with another Tuesday Favourites: the Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer!
I feel like I should preface this by saying I really don’t consider this to be an everyday product — I only use it when I want to look my best. I personally don’t always do my makeup the same way every day, for instance my “just running some errands” makeup is significantly more simple than my “casual” makeup, which is still more simple than when I really want to look my best. However, when I do put in my full effort, this product is a staple. My first time using it, I was kind of turned off by how heavy it felt — I’m sure you can tell by the picture alone that this product is THICK.
But when I went to apply my makeup on top, I was nothing but impressed. Honestly, depending on your skin, this stuff practically eliminates the need for foundation. I myself only use tinted moisturizer, however paired with this it gives the same effect as full-coverage foundation, while also lasting perfectly throughout any situation as well as not feeling too heavy after all your makeup is applied.
This stuff LITERALLY blurs out any flaws on your face, evens your skin tone and soften + smoothes out your skin, all before you even apply foundation. Seriously. On top of that, my makeup always seems to apply WAY more smoothly after I use this — I hardly ever feel like my blush/bronzer/highlighter appears patchy, heavy, unnatural etc after I’ve used this to prime my face. It’s literally like an airbrush effect IRL.
Thought this isn’t my everyday go-to, I love this stuff endlessly. Every time I need to look my best I know I can count on this stuff to make it happen. If you struggle with smooth skin, patchy makeup, or wearing and fading throughout the day, I’d seriously recommend this stuff. Check it out at Sephora here.
