I heart Smashbox primer and Dior mascara.  They’re the best.  Don’t know anything about the foundation though.  Are you going to be using powder?

The best bet then is to take your powder that you have, that is if you want to use it, and go to Sephora and have them find a great foundation that will blend nicely with it.  That way you don’t need to buy yet another thing!

 

As for the Smashbox, they also have three tinted ones that either help with discoloration (peach bottle, goes on clear).  There’s also a purple one and I think a green one.  They are also great.  I have freckles on my forehead that aren’t so cute looking and the peach one works great.

Cool!  I don’t know anything about that brand so I won’t give opinions, but it looks like they have Primers too.  Have you tried any of their products before?

I bought the MakeUpForEver HD Foundation and have not looked back since! I actually bought it for my wedding makeup as well but have been using it on a semi-regular basis to get used to applying it, etc. (I typically use a tinted moisturizer only.) It is sooo fantastic. It provides really great coverage but does not feel heavy at all, and it is very easy to apply one light layer or multiple layers depending on the amount of coverage you needs.

 The only issue I foresee you having is that there are a TON of different shades to choose from – great for finding one just right for you, but probably really confusing if you are buying online. When I bought mine I had one of the Sephora SAs test a few shades out on my skin.

I was drawn to your post as soon as I saw the title, I love all three of these products! Lol I tend to love all make-up but I especially love these 3 products.

I agree with honeylove26 about finding the right shade for the foundation, that is a must. Another thing is you might want to invest in a foundation brush to put it on with, it give you a airbrushed look and doesn’t waster any of the foundation like sponges tend to do.

But besides this I don’t have anything to say about them, the mascara is great and the primer is awesome too. I highly recommend you geting them.

DiorShow works great, but I dont use it anymore.  It kinda melts and gets under my eyes.  Also, the PhotoFinish is WONDERFUL, but I can tuse it under my Bare Minerals makeup, so I dont use that anymore either, sadly

I was just shocked at the performance of  Smashbox primer and Dior mascara.  They’re the best.  AND I’m the MOM of the Bride……   worth every cent.

 

Amazing how smooth Smashbox makes your makeup apply.  don’t know how I lived without it.  

 

The Sephora store in our area, Tampa~ does excellent on matching you with the right products, offering great color suggestions, so I STRONGLY suggest getting there with that foundation~ which can make or break your look.

I understand about the Sephora thing, I love them but there aren’t any near me. 🙁

But, you might want to check out an Ulta Cosmetics store, I think there are some near you, they are like Sephora but with a little less brands I think. They usually also have a hair/makeup salon in them. Ulta does carry Make Up Forever and Smashbox. So if you have the chance you might want to stop by one. There is a store locator on their wevsite, http://www.ulta.com Good luck!

I give a thumbs up on the smashbox primer, I’ve never tried the foundation, and for the mascara – Dior is good, but I have thin/sparse lashes and I’ve found the best to be Benefit’s Badgal – thick, lengthening and even the non-waterproof version stays put really well
