If you’re in the market for a new skin primer, then I urge you to check out the new Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers.
I’m not a huge primer person, but dang! These are GOOD. And there are 10 specially designed primers that target and perfect all skin types, tones and textures. Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers apparently triple the power of your foundation for smoother, more even, and longer lasting make up. How? Well, they contain Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and firm. There’s an ingredient called Vederine that helps your skin look more even. And theres something called Acti Tensor 3D that smooths the skin and makes your makeup last longer.
What’s unique about the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers($43) is that they’re meant to be mixed and matched to get YOUR perfect primer. They’re divided into two categories: Texture and Tone. Five of the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers are designed to address texture-related issues like shine, large pores, fine lines, dryness, and redness. The other five boost radiance for specific skin tones form light to deep.
I have the Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers in Redness Correcting and Radiant Primer Blue which is for light skins.
These feel pretty amazing for primers. One of the reasons I don’t like primers is that most of them feel so heavy and suffocating because of the silicones. These do have silicones, but feel more like a moisturizer to me. My skin feels like it can breathe when I wear them. And they don’t clog my pores causing breakouts. WIN.
Here’s a before and using the after Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers:
You can see that the green in the redness reducing MUFE Skin Equalizer softens the redness in my skin nicely! It doesn’t get rid of it completely, but when I put my foundation on, I think my skin looks more even-toned for sure! The Radiant Blue is nice too! You can combine it with the other primers, or like I did put a bit on the high points of my face. Here’s a FOTD after makeup in the sun so you can see the radiance and smoothness:
I really like these Make Up Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizers! There’s a hydrating one, and also a nourishing one as well, and those are next on my list to pick up. Those I can use before the redness reducing one. If you have oily skin you can use the mattifying or smoothing one after the redness corrector or any of the radiance ones. I’m telling ya, there’s no easier way to perfect your skin! I say pick one or two up this week during the Sephora Sale! Highly recommended!
Make Up Forever is kicking it this year with all the newness! They were a really great brand before all these product makeovers, but WOW. So many of these new products are becoming Holy Grail for me! They are that good!
Do you use a primer every time you wear make up? I didn’t, but now I sure as heck do! What’s your favourite one?
