Make Up For Ever Step 1 Equalizer
Shade: Mauve (Radiant)
In every girl’s makeup arsenal, there should be a definitive makeup base and brand where you can depend on for a work day, evening out or even a photo-op: the Make Up For Ever line’s Step 1 Skin Equalizers are a series of primers that promise to refine, smooth, even out and brighten the skin tone as well as to prolong the wear of makeup. They’re appropriately named ‘Step 1′ Skin Equalizers because a ‘primer’ is applied as your first step before you apply makeup: regular skincare, primer, foundation and the rest of your makeup.
I noticed that the Radiance Primer instantly color corrects according to your skin tone giving what looks like fresh-looking bare skin. These tailored equalizers transform radiance levels and brings more hydration and light to the face. In addition, the Radiance Primers are formulated with a blend of Spectraflex® pigments to neutralize imperfections and banish dullness to give immediate radiance and even skin tone for a flawless makeup base all day long.
Each Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer has a different function and they are available at your local Makeup For Ever store for around HKD370 each; from the line, I chose from the Radiance Primer section:
- #6 Cool Pink – for yellow fair skin
- #7 Blue – for yellow red fair skin
- #8 Peach – for fair skin
- #9 Yellow – for tanned skin
- #10 caramel – for dark skin
- #11 Mauve – for yellow dark skin
I purchased the Mauve Primer and it tripled the power of the foundations that I used it with! Although the primer has a slight fragrance to it, the scent smells great and it dissipates fairly quickly and hasn’t caused any reactions.
All in all, I’m keeping this makeup primer in my arsenal as my go-to product for a regular work day to a night out and events where I know I’ll be taking lots of photos <3 Later on, I’m interested in trying out the other primers in the line: Smoothing, Nourishing, Hydrating and the Radiant Blue one <3
