Prime Time

MAKE Beauty’s Moonlight Primer protects your skin from technology. (Seriously.)

It’s a total first world problem: The light from your electronic devices could actually cause premature aging. (Don’t even get us started on the wrinkles we’re probably getting from squinting at a too bright screen in our dark bedroom.)

But putting down the iPhone? Not exactly an option. Putting on a primer? Totally doable.

Enter MAKE Beauty’s Moonlight Primer. First and foremost, the product serves as a base to lock in your makeup and keep you looking fresh all day long. The silicon- and pararben-free gel is intimidating thanks to the color—but post-application you’d never know the primer is black. The only after-effect is a dewy finish. 🙌

On top of giving your skin that Instagram filter-esque smoothing effect, the technologically advanced gel protects your skin from the High Energy Visible (HEV) and Infrared (IR) light emitted from the very screen you’re looking at. High pollution city dwellers will also appreciate the benefits of having marine algae as an ingredient—it serves as a barrier between your skin and the free radicals pollution and heavy metals found in the air around you.

First world problem, solved.
