MAC cosmetics are well known as "top of the line" in the cosmetic industry. Walking into the MAC store can be a little overwhelming if you don't know what you are looking for, and without the Pro card your bill can add up fast! So I want to go over a few of my MUST HAVES from MAC to help you start your MAC collection:)
Kohl Power Eye Pencils- come in 10 different shades, ( Smolder is my favorite). It is a soft stick pencil. I use this liner when I want a messy or smokey look, it's very easy to smudge. You usually have a minute to play with it before it sets.
Fluid Line - This is a gel liner, that is applied with a brush. I LOVE my Blacktrack (a very bold black) and Dipdown (a soft light brown). The fluid line is water proof, so it's great for the upper and lower waterline. The only issue I have found with this line is that it starts to harden and get flakey over a long time (a year or so) so I would only get you're basic colors if you don't go crazy with your eyes very often. Other than that this liner is awesome and will last ALL day and comes in UHHH-MAZING colors.
|Powder Shadow Pigment Paint Pot|
Eye Shadow- I love Arena, Taupe, Rice Paper, and Wedge, for day to day looks. Electric Eel, Cranberry, and Chrome Yellow are my favorites when doing something fun and are more bold.
Pigment- Can't say how much I love MAC's pigment. Its a loose powder shadow; the colors are very bright and bold if you wet your brush prior, and softer if applied dry. I love Melon and Naked Dark, on blue eyes, and Copper and Antique Green on brown.
Paint Pots- Cream Shadow used to prime the lid. You can't go wrong with Bare Study, Soft Ochre, and Painterly (all neutrals), colored paints pots are great when getting into more specific looks.
|Warm and Cozy Collection|
Sticks- You really just have to try out lipsticks on your own, it's all about personal preference, but I LOVE this collection above! For every day looks I really love neutrals and soft pinks. My favorites are Myth and Creme D' Nude.
Hope this helped out a little, once you get familiar with MAC products you will fall in love.
