"Before I developed Veil Mineral Primer, I wasn't a big fan of using makeup primers. They always felt like an extra and unnecessar...y step in your makeup regimen. But then I started working with a chemist on the idea of a next generation primer, and, after numerous incarnations, we came up with Veil. It was unlike any other primer I had seen-it was silky in texture, it concealed redness, it repelled water so your foundation lasts longer and it had an SPF. I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine." -Carisa Janes, HOURGLASS founderWhat it is: An oil-free, weightless and multipurpose primer that goes beyond traditional formulations by concealing redness, minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles and shielding skin with broad-spectrum SPF 15 protection. Who it's for: All skin types. What it does: Designed to repel water to keep your makeup looking freshly applied all day long, this primer extends the durability of any foundation or powder while providing broad-spectrum protection with titanium and zinc oxide. Its unique texture is fluid, airy, silky and cushiony and goes on weightlessly without ever being greasy, tacky or pearlized or balling up on your skin. How to use: Apply 1/2 to 1 pump of Veil Mineral Primer to clean, moisturized skin prior to concealer, foundation and powder application. It works with any cream, liquid or powder foundation. Pro tips: You can also use it as a clean-up tool for your makeup, applying it to cover any excess eye makeup. Dab a small amount onto a cotton swab and glide it across any areas with eyeshadow fallout, or to clean up a cat-eye. Style Name: Hourglass Jumbo Veil Mineral Primer ($102 Value).
