After working with the Mac pro team last week and testing out some of the skincare they used back stage I got myself to Mac to make some purchases. As you know I am all about the skincare so that skin looks amazing even before makeup is applied. If you follow fashion week around the world you will see that skincare is so important and the models always look so amazing. Last week I mentioned the skincare that was used backstage but decided to write a post on the Mac Cosmetic skincare bad boys. There are 3 items that really make a difference to the skin the Charged Water Spray skin hydrating mist, Prep and Prime natural radiance and the Mineralize charged water moisture gel. Combine them together and voila gorgeous illuminated glowing skin. My favourite combo.

First up spritz the skin with the charged water skin hydrating mist on clean skin. This energises, enlivens and revitalizes the complexion. Its great to hydrate the skin and just make it feel fresh before doing anything else. Plus it just feels good to have the mist spritzed on your face as its got green tea and a citrus fragrance.

Next up apply the Prep and Prime natural radiance which gives the complexion a gorgeous glow. This one you can use and not have to go onto the  moisture gel if you have amazing skin or if you are working on a model with great skin. At the shows last week with the Mac team some of the artists just used the natural radiance after the charged water. It comes in 2 shades yellow for yellow undertones and pink for th pink undertones. This product hydrates, primes to improve foundation application, controls oil, Vitamin C and E protect with antioxidants, caffine calms the skin and the illuminating pearl powders give that gorgeous glow. Its a seriously all in one product that really does it all. the Prep and Prime natural radiance melts into skin on application just leaving nothing but amazing looking skin.

Last up the Mac Mineralize Charged Water Gel this one feels like heaven on the skin. There is one for face and body but I just went for the face one for my kit. The gel is super light which literally melts into the skin leaving it feeling fresh and has a cooling effect when it makes contact with the skin. This moisturiser gives serious hydration to the skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Infused with the charged water this bad boy leaves skin really luminous.

For my bride on saturday that struggles with dehydrated skin I used all 3 on her and then applied the Mac Face and Body that also gives great hydration to the skin. These are a triple winning combination that will stay firmly in my pro kit from now on.
