I am not usually one for primers and other peripheral steps in the makeup process. But a recent reading of a review for Studio Secrets Base made me want to run out and buy it right away. I am always plagued by the dark under eye circles. I have loved both La Mer and Chantecaille concealers. By adding the base under by eyes first, my skin was smoother. Concealer stayed on longer and looked more natural. For a drugstore product, Studio Secrets Base really performs. I am making room on my upcoming trip in my paired down makeup bag for it as my new “must have”.
