Must have: M.A.C Prep + Prime Skin Smoother


I adore the look of velvety smooth, matte skin, which is harder to achieve than it sounds! Especially when you live with high humidity like I do, and your skin is on the combination side of things.
The powers-that-be at M.A.C however, must have heard my prayers, as on counter now is the truly remarkable Prep + Prime Skin Smoother.
A creamy, balmy primer, it aims to “create the perfect canvas for foundation and other face makeup products by softening imperfections, filling lines to reduce the look of wrinkles by 28% and providing a silky, matte finish”. Thank you M.A.C! To maintain the skin’s smoothness and natural barrier, it also includes a beneficial blend of sandalwood extract, bark extract, barley extract, coffee arabica seed oil and Hydrolyzed Yeast Protein. Add to that a blend of peptides to boost skin smoothness and help improve collagen production and you have one clever wee balm. And it’s incredibly portable due to its compact nature, hurrah for that!
The magical primer was tested backstage during three seasons of Fashion Week and almost immediately the M·A·C Pro Team fell in love with the concept, with Senior Artist Luc Bouchard describing it as “my real life ‘photoshop’”!
You can apply Prep + Prime Skin Smoother Compact over moisturiser and under foundation or powder, or to refresh, mattify, or smooth your makeup by lightly stippling or pressing the product over your T-zone or anywhere that needs it.
It can also be worn alone to refine, diminish imperfections and pores, and smooth the texture of skin. Heaven in a compact this may be…
