Smashbox have been a favourite with makeup artists for years now and are famed for their primers. As a working makeup artist I’m actually not that big on primers. Cue horrified gasps. Highly pigmented lipsticks with buttery smooth texture, and high quality pro brushes at consumer prices? That’s more my thing.

Here are my favourite 3 sets available right now.

Smashbox Light It Up 3 Mini Palettes £26 (RRP £39) Contour palette | Photo Op Eye Shadow palette | Be Legendary lipstick palette


Smashbox Light It Up Glossed To Go set £13 (RRP £19.50) Shades: Ruby Light | Fuchsia Light | Lilac Light | Bare Light | Orange Light


Smashbox Light It up Brush Set £28 (RRP £42) Foundation Brush #13 | Shader Brush | Fan Brush #22 | Lip Brush #6 | Crease Brush #10


You can buy all three sets online direct from Smashbox or from Boots stores and
