MAC COSMETICS PREP + PRIME VIBRANCY EYE PRIMER RRP £22
I suffer from dark circles underneath my eyes most mornings (who doesn't?). Having tried natural solutions such as increasing my water intake and getting more sleep, I can safely admit I need a helping hand in the form of makeup. I'm always seeking makeup or moisturisers that will brighten my under eyes and I've come across a few that have let me down! The skin is incredibly thin underneath the eye and so delicate so I try to look for natural ingredients to prevent reactions to the eye area.
Prep and Prime Vibrancy Eye primer is quite a thick serum that can be applied across and underneath the eyes. It reduces the appearance of dark circles and sets a canvas for liquid or mineral powder foundations/concealers. It feels lovely and sinks into the skin naturally. I found that the prep + prep was not enough to cover darker areas in the corner of my eyes(MACconcealer was used in conjunction). I also found the pump to be a little unreliable and sometimes gives you too much! I use this product for the overall texture the product gives and unfortunately not for brightening my dark bags!Smokeyblush TIP: If the pump does give you a little more than expected, why don't you use it to highlight and contour the nose or perhaps a little above the mouth will give your smile that extra radiance you want!
