The Many Uses of Fix+ Spray ! <3

The Many Uses of Fix+ Spray! 

 There are many ways to enjoy and utilize this product and I'm sure you all may have some of your own so please comment and share and pass on the love!!

The product description per MAC website:

An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!
100 ml / 3.4 fl oz

  • This fabulous fine misting spray is great for setting your makeup and helping make it last longer.
  • I love using it to help de-mattify my face if I want a dewier look or if a client has changed their mind and don't want a matte look.
  • Probably the most common way this is used is as a mixing medium. There are two ways to do it and it's all about preference: 1. spray your brush with Fix+, shake off any excess (so it's not wicked wet) then work with your eye shadows, pigments, etc. and it will make them pop and be super vibrant! 2. the other way to do this is to pack the shadow, pigment, etc. on the brushfirst, then spritz the brush with the Fix+ spray and apply to your eye as usual, just be sure you don't use it on your matte shadows or it will ruin them! They'll get cakey and crumbly and be gross. Boo! Hiss!
  • To the point above, spritzing your face brush of choice then swiping it across or swirling it into your Mineralize Skinfinish Foundations before applying to your face will give you a beautiful, natural finish to your look. The end result is awesome!
  • Because of the healing ingredients in this product, it's a great skin refresher, rejuvenater, healer! If you have redness or acne, spritz your face and you'll notice a reduction in irritation. It's especially wonderful to people with sensitive skin, like me. ;-)
  • Because this has caffeine in it, it wakes your skin up and gives it (and you!) a bit of a boost and little pep in your step!
  • I love using this in my hair. Yup, you read that right. It's incredibly conditioning to the hair follicles and your scalp. It also helps with frizz! this year, Germany was experiencing some sporadic rain and by the end of Day 1, my hair looked like I had stuck my finger in a light socket. No joke. I made a bee line for the MAC Pro store down the street and spritzed my head all over, massaged it gently into the roots and voila! Not-so-scary-me was back! Hahaha! It was all smoothed out and calmed down and I didn't look like the bride of Frankenstein.
  • A dampened powder puff using MAC's Fix+ Spray is a great way to absorb excess oil and moisture from the skin without moving the makeup.
  • How about a moisturizer for your skin!?? Sure! I tend to only do this in the evening as I like to wear a moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30 in it (sun and UVB = bad for your skin!) during the day, but after washing my face instead of applying my normal moisturizer, I spritz Fix+ and I'm good to go.
Overall, this is just a "makes you feel good like a big 'ol hug" product that I think everyone should have. LOL! It smells wonderful yet it's such a light "barely there" perfume scent that it's not heavy or overpowering. If you really don't like any scent whatsoever, then this is definitely not the product for you but check it out first b/c you may find it's ok for you!

These are just the main ways I use this product but I'm sure there are tons of other ways that people use it so please share your tips!

Happy Gorgeous Sunday, lovelies!
