Sarah’s Secret- Boot’s PhotoFix

The secret to Lisa D’Amato‘s flawless look after her horrific accident just a month before the Grammy’s was Boots PhotoFix!  Primarily used for fine lines and wrinkles but heaven-sent to hide any unwanted scars or marks. It’s also hypo-allergenic and completely safe for us to use on Lisa, leaving scars unnoticeable in photographs!  Katy Perry is also known to use PhotoFix to diminish acne scars.

How to use: Apply underneath your foundation and allow the primer to work it’s magic!
