MAC Prep + Prime Fix + Uses

Not Sponsored: Ah! Makeup Setting Sprays. I use my Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray $39 (Nordstrom, Sephora, ULTA, QVC <-$32, Macys <-$32) (review here) all the time. I'm always reaching for it. It hydrates my skin (with makeup/without makeup). It sets my makeup without making it move about. It makes my makeup LAST ALL DAY! It's supreme. Well, I purchased MAC's Prep + Prime $26 (Nordstrom, ULTA, Harrods, Bloomingdales, Selfridges, Birchbox, Saks Fifth Avenue) awhile ago and it just kind of sits on my makeup tray...lonely....calling out, USE ME...USE ME PLEASE! LOL Oh, if makeup products could talk. HaHaHa I use it if an eye shadow needs help with pigmentation, but other than that the bottle just sits. So I thought I would hop on the internet and research its uses again. I found a lot of uses for it and I'm ready to give it a go again. I'm not going to rate this products, because personally I haven't used it to it's fullest potential. I thought I would share some of the uses I found below. Maybe yours is sitting! Maybe this post will get you to use yours once again as well ;) It's definitely a really good product. People talk about it all the time. I feel there are many others like me, that are not getting all the uses out of it. It's too expensive to just sit.


1. Hydration (Great for Dry Skin) - On MAC's website, it says it will provide hydration. It's a lightweight hydrating mist that will soothe and refresh skin. It's a lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh skin. It gives and instant boost of hydration while setting makeup. Moisturizes and soothes tired skin.

2. Makeup Setting Spray - MAC states Fix+ will set your makeup.

3. Use it as a Base - Before applying your makeup, use it to hydrate and PREP your skin before makeup application. It will also create a smooth and even surface for makeup application.

4. Tone down your makeup - Applied too much powder, blush etc. MAC Fix + can be used to tone down those errors. It can also be used to erase makeup mistakes (if applied with a cotton ball etc).

5. Thin out thick concealer & foundation - You can use MAC Fix + to thin out thick (full coverage) foundation and concealer that has become too thick. 

6. Intensify eye shadows & highlighters- Some shadows/highlighters need a little help in the pigment department. Spraying a little Fix + (brush or skin) will help intensify them.

7. Helps soothe sunburn - Who would've thought!?! But the chamomile, green tea and cucumber extracts have soothing properties. 

8. Adds Hydration & Shine to Hair - Spray a little in your hair, brush and comb through.

9. Give new life to dried out eyeliner and eye pomades - A spritz or two should help bring the consistency back to life if dried out.

10. Hydrate your Beauty Blenders - I've been using my Smashbox Primer Water for this, but I will also try it with MAC Fix+
These were some of the most common uses that I came across. 
I'll give it another go :) Hope you do as well!
