Prep + Prime Products You Need To Know About! | MAC


A good base is essential for any make up application and these Prep & Prime products from MAC are life changing..

Last month I had the amazing MAC senior make up artist,  Debbie Finnegan give me a little make up refresh. I was really adamant on switching things up with my look, the make up products we tried I will share with you soon but first let’s start with the base - these products are the bomb. 

Fast Response Eye Cream 
Eye cream is a step I often miss out (oops) but lately I’ve been diligent with incorporating one into my routine. The MAC eye cream is extremely lightweight and absorbs well into the skin. It has a smoothing finish on the skin and really help to soften the lines around my eyes - This works so well under concealer which is an essential for me. 

Prep + Prime TimeCheck Lotion 
When Debbie applied this product to my face I was amazed at the difference it made. Is it a face cream? Is it a primer? Well it's a bit of both, it's a product that can be used however you desire. Timecheck Lotion has an instant blur effect to the skin and perfects the appearance of lines/pores. It doesn't have that silicone feeling on the skin, instead it feels light and a small amount goes a long way - After using this you'll find you need a lot less foundation. 

It's no secret that I love a face oil but I rarely use them during the day let alone before make up application. I was surprised when Debbie used this to hydrate my skin but it felt incredible. This oil can be used in combination with your moisturiser - it instantly perks up the skin and enhances radiance. This is a key product used backstage at fashion week and it's no surprise why. The MAC Essential Care Oil is also a beautiful product to mix in with your foundation/concealers it transforms the textures and is certainly a hidden gem from the Prep + Prime collection.

Lip Conditioner 
Who can resist a good lip balm and the scent of this one is so nostalgic. When it comes to moisturising, lip balms is one of the first steps in my Prep + Prime routine. This one is nourishing and locks in hydration all day - It doesn't have a glossy/shiny finish which makes it the perfect base for matte lip products. 

Have you tried any of the Prep + Prime range? I adore it, there are so many amazing products that never get enough light shone on them. 

Lots of Love 


  1. I love the prep+prime range at mac! I used to introduce it to many customers when I worked on counter and they would never be disappointed. My essential oils smashed in my freelance kit basically 3/4 full; need to pick up a new one. I love the eye cream and the lip conditioner; they are staples in my kit xx
