A Product | Mac Prep and Prime Highlighter.

Now, where do I begin with the MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter? I am still very new to the whole highlighting and contouring malarkey, and have been dabbling around with many different products. Previously, I have been using my concealer to highlight under the eyes, around my nose and slightly on the forehead. However, I did not always notice much of a difference.

It was during one of my numerous YouTube tutorial watching sessions that I heard about the MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter in ‘Light Boost’, and from the moment of first application I was won over.

The product is dispensed by twisting up the base of the pen, where it comes out in the bristles. This makes applying the product easy and precise. ‘Light Boost’ is a thin consistency, which means that it is really easy to blend. I have been using my Beauty Blender to mix the product into my foundation seamlessly. There are three other shades available, but the yellow tone in ‘Light Boost’ makes is perfect for illuminating the skin for a natural finish.

I have been using this product in conjunction with my concealer; however, I also use the MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter on its own as a sheer coverage concealer and brightening. I tend to use this on its own when I am having a good skin day, along with my Benefit Big Easy.

One of the only downsides I have found with this product so far is that it can get very messy. The product can end up all around the tip of the pen, so after every use I just use a tissue to wipe off the excess.

I would highly recommend this product, particularly for those who are new to highlighting (like me) and are looking for an easy to use highlighting product!
