I’ve had a challenging relationship with primers over the years. I’ve tried many, but never have I found one I ever felt really worked. I could never truly feel if they were working their magic in between my skincare and makeup, but then MAKE UP FOR EVER showed up with a new line addressing every skincare need under the sun and I’m totally convinced primer can work when it’s done right.
The new Step 1 Skin Equalizer from MUFE come in 10 varieties to fix common skin problems and create the perfect base for your makeup. Split in to two categories, texture and tone, the range can be mixed and matched to colour correct and tweak the surface so makeup plays along for the day.
With my endless hunt for products to nix shine, I gave the mattifying product a try and haven’t let go of it since. I love the packaging for its simplicity – tubes are the way to go with products like these. I applied after my skincare with a beauty blender, paying close attention to my t-zone and chin. Within seconds I could literally feel the difference on my skin – its appearance was much smoother and makeup clung to it that much better. I set with their Mist & Fix, and my makeup has been staying in place the best it ever has.
You can find the range for $43.00 a tube at Sephora or directly from MAKE UP FOR EVER. I really think this is the best primer I’ve tried, and worth the price tag.
