People are always asking me what my MAC must haves are so I thought I would begin to answer that FAQ here in segments! I will probably do a video on youtube.com/aglittery life soon giving more detail to what my MAC must haves are and the why behind it so head over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that!!
I love the MAC PREP + PRIME line! There are two products that I use almost everyday from that collection.
1. MAC PREP + PRIME highlighter in light boost. Here is how MAC describes this product “A pen-style highlighter that efficiently brings a soft sheer wash of colour to the skin. With its precision application, adds radiance just where you want it. Goes on smoothly for cushion-soft wear. Use over makeup for highlights, touch-ups or under makeup to brighten and prime.”
I love this highlighter! I use it mainly for my under eyes and for some highlighting on my nose and chin. It’s the perfect highlight for my fair skin and I find that it stays all day and has minimal creasing.
2.PREP + PRIME transparent finishing powder. This is how MAC describes it “A silky finishing powder that provides an invisible way to set makeup. Reduces shine while optically minimizing the look of pores, lines, imperfections. Available in one universal colour that suits all shades. Wear over makeup or on bare, moisturized skin.”
It’s really important to set your makeup. I like to set my foundation and contouring, then set my face again after applying cheek color. I love to layer blush and this is an ideal product to use in between using a cream blush such as the NARS multiple in Na Pali and a powder blush like Benefit Rockateur. The powder keeps the multiple from sticking or catching when the powder blush is applied over it. This is also my go to powder for setting my under eye area. It’s so finely milled that it goes one flawlessly! Don’t forget when using powders swirl your brush in the lid to pick up product and then tap off excess before applying to your gorgeous face!
