But then I started working with a chemist on the idea of a next generation primer, and, after numerous incarnations, we came up with Veil. It was unlike any other primer I had seen—it was silky in texture, it concealed redness, it repelled water so your foundation lasts longer, and it had an SPF. I felt like it delivered in so many ways that I knew it had earned a place in my daily routine."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder

If you want to know more…
This multitasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer is for face, eyes, and lips.

Anti-pollution natural active ingredients fight immediate attack from environmental stressors and help support the skin’s barrier function to act against future attack, visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dullness.

Tatcha brings a modern evolution of this time-honored practice to life in The Silk Canvas.
