No primer needed! It's built into Ultra Skin's sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types, water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid and arid climates.
The silicones in Ultra Skin's formulation create an optical blurring effect that diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, creating the illusion of a smoother, more uniform skin with a unique satin finish.
The oil-free formula hydrates skin and does not require powder for setting.
The SPF-free formula allows you to choose the best suncreen for your skin but remember that SPF products will flash white. More importantly, SPF isn’t effective in cosmetics. We urge you to find a good sunscreen and use as directed. Read more about SPF.
The silicones in the formula ensure a long lasting, moisture, heat and oil-resistant finish that doesn’t crack, settle or fade. The silicone molecule is bigger than human pore, enabling it to float on the skin without settling into pores, fine lines or wrinkles. It also has soft focus properties that create optical blurring, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and gives the illusion of smoother, more uniform skin. Ultra Skin performs well in any weather, from stifling humidity to cold, dry winter conditions.
Dermatologists report that a silicone-based foundation is ideal if you suffer from rosacea, in part because of the silicone in the formula creates skin-barrier protection. Silicone's large molecules prevent it from being absorbed by the skin. In addition, Ultra Skin's undertones will cancel out much of the red caused by rosacea or other skin conditions.

Cylcomethicone l Cetyl Dimethicone - Silicones are derived from silica that is derived from quartz, the second most naturally occurring mineral on earth. They impart emolliency and significantly enhance a product’s lifespan and effectiveness. They create a soft, smooth product that is pleasant to apply and, in the case of cyclomethicone, impart a unique skin feel. Silicones are naturally water resistant while absorbing sebum (the oily substance produced by certain glands in the skin), thus reducing skin shine. Their molecules are larger than human pores, preventing them from settling into them upon application. The unique molecular structure of silicones (larger molecules with wider spaces between each molecule) allows them to form a breathable and protective barrier between skin and the product. They also have unique healing and protecting properties. Silicones ensure an even application of other ingredients and leave behind a silky, almost imperceptible feel that noticeably enhances the skin's texture and appearance.
