Forget retouching! Smashbox is your key to looking photo-shoot flawless every day. It all began when brothers Dean and Davis Factor—great-grandsons of makeup legend Max Factor—created Smashbox Studios in 1990. With a slew of world-class talent passing through the photo studios daily, the two were often asked to develop makeup that met the demanding needs of a shoot. So they combined talents—Dean, a business guru, and Davis, a top celebrity/fashion photographer—to launch Smashbox Cosmetics in 1996. If this iconic collection is good enough for the A-list, it’s certainly on our list of frontrunners.
You don’t need to be an A-lister to use makeup fit for a professional photo shoot. Products should keep up with any demanding lifestyle, whether that’s lasting all day in front of a camera or looking pulled-together during a grueling 12-hour day in the office.
Smashbox’s packaging is recyclable, made with sustainable paper and soy ink.
Photo Finish Foundation Primer prepares your skin for makeup and keeps it fresh throughout your daily adventures; Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation SPF 10 is oil-free and gives natural-looking coverage; Photo Set Pressed Powder keeps you shine-free under the spotlight—or any light for that matter.
