M·A·C Prime Focus.

As I have gotten older, I have faced the fact that I need more than just good makeup and skin care.  I need the extra help of primers. I consider primers to be a part of my skin care routine as thy are a very important step in the overall process.  A good primer not only helps to keep makeup in place all day perfectly, it smoothes the skin, protects the skin, even it out and more.  It really makes you skin the perfect canvas on which to apply makeup.

M·A·C has their Prep & Prime line that features just that. Products to prep the skin and prime it for perfect makeup application.  Today, they are adding to it with these new beauties and they are calling it Prime Focus.

We’ve become THE high-performance Prep + Prime player backstage at Fashion Week. To keep up with the demand to achieve an even more awe-inspiring level of Artistry, M·A·C puts the latest must-haves right in the Pros’ hands again this season by taking Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer SPF 35 global. This major multi-tasker functions as colour-corrector, face primer, and UV protector with light hydrating properties all-in-one. But innovation never idles; so we’re introducing NEW  Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed to glide on skin after for an undetectable and smooth, silky-soft, colourless aura, in the form of a compact cache to freshen up on-the-go. Day or night, runway or real time, these Primers are the start-to-finish every girl needs to get where she’s going in record time, ultimate chic! These are fast times. We’re running with it.

Take a look at the collection!


  • Adjust Light - neutral peach
  • Illuminate - Pale lavender
  • Neutralize - Pale yellow
  • Recharge - Bronzy orange

I have tried Illuminate and Neutralize.  As I am self tanning right now, Neutralize is the shade for me these days.  It evens out my skin making the need for less foundation. It softens my lines and makes my skin just look better.  Illuminate is a more pink/lavender shade that totally brightens a look when used under makeup.  IT was too bright for my tan, but I can see this shade being perfect under foundation in the winter when I am more pale.


This finishing powder adds a beautiful soft focus look to the skin.  I am applying it with the MAC Bufffer Brush 182. It is a kabuki style brush that blends the powder into my skin so there is no white look left behind, only smooth flawless looking skin.
