Smashbox: must have products
Grace: What is the product that a woman who does not yet know Smashbox should try?
Lisa Brugin: "First of all the primer. The primer was the first product that made a difference in photographic studios, to meet the needs of the founder of the brand, Davis Factor, a professional photographer, who was looking for something that made make-up last for a long time, that had an excellent photographic yield, but that it was also extremely practical for the make-up artists who had to work with him. So fast, smart, easy to apply: Smashbox face primer is the product that made the biggest difference ".
Grace: Which foundation would you recommend instead?
"I would definitely recommend the Studio Skin foundation in its declinations, both the new Shaping Foundation than the classic Studio Skin because it is a foundation that responds to this new Smashbox concept that is the light concept. In the Smashbox studios, a room has been created, a studio called Flashbox, in which there is a make-up chair surrounded by a large number of professional lights. There are settings that reproduce various lighting conditions within this room. Cold neon, daylight, sunset light, flash light, just to test the reaction of all the products, the yield they have in all the light conditions in which we can find ourselves in real life. Our foundation perfects the complexion and gives a second effect skin in all light conditions ".

Lately there has been a lot of talk about contouring as a trend, but it is a technique that make-up artists have always used to harmonize faces. The important thing is that it is always natural, harmonized with the tone of the skin and the shape of the face ".
