Makeup Monday


One thing I think everybody needs is primer now matter what brand or color you use. For your eyes or face it's stays on longer goes on smoother and looks better period.

I have tried so many of these over the years its crazy and always on the face I go back to Smashbox it's the best one I have found. It goes on so smooth and makes my foundation go on smoother and last longer. I used the one below for it seems like forever.
 Photo Finish Foundation Primer To Go

Then we went shopping with my mom and sister maybe a year or year and a half ago and they used the color correcting on her which I had never considered even trying. Once I saw how amazing it was on here  I just had to have it that day and I have been using that ever since.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer Adjust

My face has a tendency to get red around my cheek area this has really helped switching from the normal primer to the color correcting.

Recently however I got a sample of the Hydrating primer by Smashbox and I was speechless (does not happen often when it comes to makeup) during the winter I need any and everything to help with moisture on my skin this stuff is a dream! So now I think I have found one for the summer then switch for the winter. I have used so many different brands for primer but Smashbox has been hands down the best I have come across for your face!


Yes I truly think every person needs. No this is not a want but a need. It will make your shadow last so much longer I don't care what brand of shadow you normally use. Unless of course it's mally shadow sticks and they just don't move til you take it off. I have 2 that I use for my eyes. Yes I know.. do I need two really? I do because I love choices. The 2 I think are a must?

Eyeshadow Primer Potion Professional Size
This is more or less my go to for primer on a day to day basis. I love the angle of the wand they have to apply it with and it makes sure whatever I put on my eyes stays.


Shadow Insurance

The two faced goes on smoothly and has almost a tiny sparkle and color to it when you put it so it's great to use with the shimmery or every day use. Like I said I just like options and these 2 are the best I have found in eye primers. 

What primers do you love?


  1. I actually use and love my primers. Smashbox foundation and eye primer :)

  2. I have been using shadow insurance for over a year and I love it!!

  3. I use Avon's Magicx face perfector primer. It is under $10, and I love it as much as Smashbox.

  4. I use the primer that came with my Bare Minerals. You should sell makeup!! I worked at Macy's cosmetic counter years ago! LOVED IT.

  5. You should do a video on how you do your makeup!

  6. Love love love smashbox primer and urban decay eyeshadow primer! Both are awesome!

  7. Love smashbox primers! The hydrating one was one of my fave finds last year-- it is heavenly in the winter!

This is the random everyday of my life. I live in a small town in VA with the husband and 2 furbabbies (Bo the dog and Toby the cat). I love makeup, reading, country music, Scentsy pinterest, blogging, and spending time with my family.
