Alright, what I'm about to pitch may have some of you wondering if I've gone mad... & ... no, tap water will not have the same effect... :)
There is a product MAC carries called Fix+, it is in a clear cylinder bottle and it looks and feels like water. No, I'm not wasting your time... i promise... read on.
It is a light mineral based liquid that you spray on your face. It is meant to be applied after you put your makeup on. It takes away that "powder" look and leaves you with a nice fresh, non-makeupy finish. I, on the other hand spray it on my face BEFORE i put on my moisturizer. Moisturizer gets optimal results when it is applied to a damp face... essentially, it locks in moisture as well as provides it. Try it! Spray a little bit on before makeup (1 or 2 sprays) apply your moisturizer, then the rest of your beauty regimen. When you are complete, give another spray or 2 to create that nice airbrushed finish.
According to MAC, Fix+ is a "aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup."
FIX+ is sold at MAC retailers and online at www.maccosmetics.ca. $21.50 for 100 ml/3.4 fl oz bottle. (or if you have a nice makeup artist friend who will buy it for you... about 40% less)
Sorry the blog is so short tonight ladies, I'm exhausted and my little one hasn't been sleeping well. She is with grandma for the evening, so i am off to get some much needed sleep.
