Why It Works

This multi-tasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer for face, eyes and lips.

  • Blurs: Silk extracts feel nourishing on skin and instantly diminish the look of pores, fines lines and imperfections for the perfect canvas before makeup.
  • Primes: Silk powder makes makeup glide on more evenly and last longer, minimizing excess shine with a soft focus finish.
  • Protects: Protective barrier derived from botanicals acts as a barrier between makeup and skin, helping to prevent clogged pores that can lead to breakouts. 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.
  • Enhances: Pink and gold pearl helps even skin tone for a healthy look.
  • Anti-aging: Hadasei-3™, a trinity of Japanese superfoods, green tea, rice and algae, visibly restores youthful radiance.


Ideal for all skin types. Non-comedogenic. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing. Dermatologist tested. Cruelty-free.
Formulated without:
Parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA.

How To Use

Suggested Usage

Glide the spatula lightly across the top of balm. Dot with fingertips and massage into skin. A little goes a long way. Use a rice-sized amount for the whole face.

Can be used alone or with makeup. Apply after SPF, before any makeup. Suitable for use on face, eye and lips. Replace the lid tightly after each use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Primer My skin always feels its best at night after following my TATCHA Ritual. In the morning, I always felt that putting on makeup would be clogging the pores that I had just cleansed. Hearing about TATCHA's newest product, The Silk Canvas, I knew this was for me. The Silk Canvas puts a barrier between my cleansed/moisturized skin and my make up. After using it, I am hooked. Like all TATCHA Products, less is more. It goes on smoothly as I massage it into my skin. I have found that my make up looks brighter and lasts throughout the day. I have even gone without makeup on a few occasions, using just The Silk Canvas. Thank you, TATCHA, for another wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Those Geishas In the past, I tried primers and felt no affection for them. They didn't deliver anything but an added step to my routine. I’ve ignored them all until my beloved TATCHA introduced theirs. The results I saw after the first application, startled me. My pores which are the size of moon craters vanished. And by the end of the day, my makeup was still in place. No Houdini act as is typical for my foundation. Such an amazing primer.! I want to put in the suggestion box to please develop a powder foundation for combo skin. Those geishas and their beauty secrets.... Love you Tatcha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A makeup artist's dream As a makeup artist, I can tell you this primer is a game changer. The texture is like pure silk on skin, and glides effortlessly when applied leaving a soft-focus finish. Skin looks transformed even before foundation is applied making my job so much easier. I especially love this for under-eyes! Concealer did not crease one bit even shooting under warm lights! Pores and fines lines look immediately diminished and the tone has a beautiful lit from within glow. I have been using the Dewy Skin mist on clients for years and have recently been adding more Tatcha products to my kit. If this primer is any indication of future things to look forward to, I can see my kit getting taken over by Tatcha! It's amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Holy Grail Primer I've tried my fair share of primers, including popular primers from top makeup brands like Too Faced, Becca, Tarte, etc but never found one that I felt actually made much of a difference. The Silk Canvas changed the game! You can literally feel your skin becoming smoother as you apply it to your face. This primer makes my liquid foundation glide on easily and evenly, and smooths out pores and imperfections. I'm also used to needing a loooot of product with other primers I've tried - One of the best things about this one is that a little bit goes a very long way, so it will last so much longer! You really only need a tiny amount of this product - applying in excess has the potential to make your face appear oily because the primer is so moisturizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Official: I'm In Love This is a primer that really does what it says it will. From its velvety texture to its perfect hue, it has already become a must-have staple in my makeup routine. I have a bit of rosacea, and I love the way it evens out my skin tone and preps my skin for foundation. I notice that my makeup looks crisp all day and it's so convenient that I can also use it as an eye and lip primer. I've also worn it without foundation, and the fresh face it gives me is worthy of applause. So pleased with this TATCHA product. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So silky!!! This is the best primer I have ever used. At first when I opened it I was apprehensive because I was like how can something so thick looking be light on your face? But by some miracle it is the lightest primer I’ve ever tried. I love that it’s also good for your skin and has all these benefits like anti-aging! I don’t feel guilty using it every day. It also makes your face makeup look super vibrant! I would buy in bulk if I could. I just love all tatcha products and this one doesn’t disappoint !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Product! The silk canvas is a wonderful primer to use before you apply your makeup. I use a liquid foundation and this primer just made it glide on better. In fact, I am using less foundation ( nice plus if your foundation is pricy) since I have been using the Silk Canvas Primer. This primer also diminishes the size and appearance of your pores. Another great product from Tatcha and the container and packaging are equally as great. I have been using this every day and I am very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Focus glow! I’ve never been particularly interested in primers and thought of them more as a special use product for occasions when I needed my makeup to look fresh and to last from morning to night—until now! I decided to try Tatcha’s new primer because I had a couple events coming up. I told myself if any brand could come up with a primer that would feel weightless, be suitable for sensitive skin, and not dry out my mature skin or create that dreaded über matte finish, it would be Tatcha. And, Tatcha did not disappoint! This silky primer blends out beautifully on my fair complexion and leaves a smooth and even, soft focus glow of good health that renders my skin “makeup optional”. Full disclosure here (lol), I do have excellent skin to begin with and only use about half what Tatcha recommends. That is enough to do my face and neck. And, since I’m in my seventies, I really appreciate the blurring effect on the wrinkles and crinkles. Three cheers for Tatcha’s new primer and the look of good health!

How does the skin absorb the anti-aging benefits when this product provides a "skin barrier" to keep makeup out?

Asked by: Susanf
That is a great question! The Silk Canvas helps to keep pores from congestion and protects skin from environmental stressors such as pollution. Our formula is designed to not inhibit your skin from benefiting from the anti-aging goodness found in our Hadasei-3 complex of green tea, red algae, and rice bran which is in every item we make, including The Silk Canvas. Always, TATCHA
