Whether you want to minimise your routine or make your makeup looks last all day, MAC have a gorgeous collection of products which can make getting ready in the mornings that little bit easier.

Finding the perfect products and techniques is the secret to creating a makeup look which takes only minutes to apply and lasts all day long - looking just as perfect as when you first applied it.

Prep your skin

Follow up your morning skincare routine with one of MAC's hero products - MAC Prep + Prime Fix+. Formulated with a soothing botanical blend of Green tea, Chamomile and Cucumber, the refreshing spray instantly gives your skin the little boost it needs, adding much needed hydration and glow.

Infused with vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients which nourish your complexion, Fix+ helps to combat environmental aggressors and the impact of free radical damage on the skin.

Not only will the spray help to protect your skin, it also perfectly preps your skin for makeup, helping your look to last beautifully throughout the day.

Create a long-lasting base

The perfect way to create a long-lasting, natural base is to work in thin layers to build up your coverage. Using a lightweight foundation which is thin in consistency is ideal, allowing you to build up your coverage gradually to create a beautifully flawless complexion which lasts all day.

MAC Face and Body Foundation creates a dewy, natural looking complexion which can be build up for flawless, imperfection blurring coverage.

Apply Face and Body in thin, even layers onto your skin using the MAC 190 Foundation Brush to achieve a luminous base which lasts all day.

Fuss-free eyes

When eyeliner and multiple shadows seem a little bit much in the morning, opt for a metallic cream eyeshadow like the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot to  create an eye-catching look in seconds.

Apply with your fingers and seamlessly blend onto your eyelid or pack on with a brush for a bolder, more intense look. With up to fifteen hours of wear, the long-wearing Paint Pots are the perfect product to apply if you need your make up to last throughout the day creasing or fading.

One-step brows

Although micro pencils and pomades are wonderful in your brows, they do take a lot of time and work. To speed up your makeup routine in the morning without fully neglecting your brows, try the one-step MAC Big Brow Pencil which fills and sets your brows.

The long-wearing creamy formula blends beautifully into the brows, adding structure and shape without taking too much time. Your brows will look full and defined and will stay in place all day.
