Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smooth & Blur Primer

It’s lightweight and silky, and gives your face a more even texture while giving your liquid or powder foundation something to hang onto. This formula is free of fragrances, parabens, and talc, too! And as an added bonus, Smashbox even recommends you try a little in your hair to tame frizziness!

Imagine a BB cream, CC cream, and a moisturizer combined. That’s this cruelty-free makeup product! It’s lightweight enough to wear alone but it can also be layered for more coverage in place of a foundation. The best part? It has SPF 30 so your beautiful face is always protected!

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer

8 Cruelty-Free Makeup Musts

If the adorable retro pin-up girl packaging’s not enough, ticket to slightly sun-kissed and contoured. Add a little around your hairline and just beneath your cheekbones and blend for a little extra color. Life hack: Bronzers can help you balance out a foundation shade that’s a shade too light for your skin tone. You know, when you buy one foundation shade that just isn’t quite right? Yeah, we’ve all been there.
