i know that summer has a tendency to make us want to wear less of everything – layers of clothing, makeup, even hair (anyone going for a chic summer chop?) – but summer sweat also tends to cause an increase in unwanted breakouts. for that reason, i usually need to up my foundation coverage a notch while still avoiding anything that looks or feels heavy on my skin. mac’s prep + prime bb is the perfect solution. its creamy consistency primes my skin, mattifying in the slightest, yet also illuminating. (how they achieved that bit of magic i’ll never know!) i’ve been using it with my new favorite brush, finding that coverage is lightweight and flawless. the product decreases redness and evens out any sunspots for a beautiful complexion that i can’t get enough of. it’s not at all drying and the addition of spf 35 (an upgrade on most makeup that boasts a measly spf 15) means that it’s even more perfect for spending some extra time in the sun. if you’re looking for a summer staple (and something that can carry you easily into fall, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves) i’m thinking this tube holds your new favorite face perfector.
