When I am doing a photo shoot it is very important for me to have the skin ready for a smooth makeup application. It starts with a clean face, then a toner and then a primer. I like to use mineralized Timecheck Lotion by MAC Makeup. Mineralize Timecheck Lotion utilizes ingredients that fight against time. The addition of a new innovative polymer technology also creates the optical illusion of blurred lines and wrinkles, while helping to shrink the look of pores. Formulated with our signature Charged Water Technology to saturate skin with short- and long-term hydration and Mineral-Rich Yeast Extract to nourish and redensify the complexion with a blend of essential minerals. Delivered in a unique gel-lotion formula that feels like a cooling, refreshing splash of water. Can be applied as a primer for makeup that glides like silk on top. You have to have a nice clean palette to start your skin. JosephKellner.com
The primers give the makeup something to grab onto and help your makeup last longer, because the makeup primers create a smooth and perfect surface. Most of them are oil and fragrance-free and have a gel formula that allows an even and precise application. They work especially well for people with oily and combination skin as they control excess shine and absorb the oil. It is also appropriate for those with very dry and sensitive skin as it nourishes the skin and calms inflammations. If you apply makeup primer before the foundation it won’t rub off or smear. A primer should be applied after your moisturizer and before the foundation. It’s essential to let it sink in for a few minutes (give it enough time to penetrate into your skin). Apply it with your fingers to the areas where your makeup doesn’t last longer (usually chin, lips, eyelids) or over to the whole face. It should always be applied on clean skin.
Joseph Kellner Recommends BB CREME EYES if you are looking for good coverage on your model for a photo-shoot. I may say if you are looking for a concealer this is a very good one to use if you are also using a liquid foundation for the model. I have not used it on a powder application but I am sure I will not have a problem. I started my model out with a clean face and applied PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER. This is a excellent primer and fills the pores and leaves the face satin smooth.

This is a affordable product to use. I was surprised at the amount of coverage under my eyes. I was expecting to have to layer it on, but a few little dots did the trick. Keeps skin moisturized and smooth all day, doesn’t crease or cake. I also used the darkest tone to contour the face, cheeks, and nose with my foundation. This is easy to use and disappears once you blend with brush. Makes under eyes look great. But this really smooth’s out under eye area & blends perfectly with rest of foundation. Excellent product to use.
