The newest edition to my beauty arsenal is MAC cosmetics’ Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment . I’m still on my journey to clear, glowing (hopefully, flawless) skin! I’ve been focused on all-over skincare, face and body. However, I can’t ignore the fact that even when I’m wearing makeup I want my skin to look its best. The Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone actually helps control oil and shine throughout the day.
I’ve tried it and I know that it works (yes, folks have noticed!). This product has the consistency of a lotion, so I use a brush to gently and strategically place it on my skin. After applying my oil-free moisturizer, I place a small dab (not even dime-sized amount) to my T-zone, specifically around nostrils and on my chin. It dries immediately so you really don’t need to work it in. MAC Makeup Artist, Romero Jennings, recommends just a gentle tap with the brush to help it absorb. What I noticed is that I went a lot longer before seeing any signs of “shine” on my forehead and under my chin, which kept my makeup looking smoother and more polished throughout the day.
Tip: You can also use the Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment once your makeup has been applied for added oil control!
