Beauty find: MAC Prep + Prime

I’ve just discovered that the makeup I’ve used since I was 14 is making me look older around the eyes. I kept seeing myself in photos with weird, white, dry under-eye circles and would cringe. What was THAT?

I have dark circles so I have to cover them up, but that white streak business had to stop. This is my new find: MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, $24 at Nordstrom and MAC.

I’m a less-is-more makeup girl and skip foundation in favor of  just moisturizer with a little under-eye concealer. YSL Touche Eclat is my desert-island beauty product, $40 at Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks, or Neiman Marcus.

Now, I add a light dusting of MAC Prep+Prime powder all over to keep things where they belong. It doesn’t add color or texture and cuts just enough of the shine to keep the dewy look that I like.

I only apply it once a day, in the morning. (Although a more valiant cosmetic user would probably include an afternoon touch-up as well, but I’m a lazy makeup girl.)

It also comes in a pressed compact version, which I’ll need for my purse post-haste.

(Do you have any other tips for keeping away makeup lines under the eyes? I’m still learning.)

Happy weekend!
