Most people I know love a bit of MAC makeup but some are not quite sure where to start in terms of what to buy as MAC have such a huge range so I thought I would share with you what my top 6 recommended products are.
These blushers come in various different finishes
Mineralise- a sheer, lightweight blusher
Pro Longwear- a highly pigmented lightweight blusher
Powder- a buildable powder for all over the face
Casual Colour- a versatile creamy product for lips and cheeks
Cream Colour Base- a creamy formula that gives a dewy finish
Cremeblend- a medium coverage buildable blusher
They offer such a huge colour range that will wanting you want them all! One of my favourites is Dolly Mix, pictured below. It is a beautiful powder which is highly pigmented perfect for spring/summer, it is quite bright but easy to blend and tone down.
There are various different finishes available
Pro Longwear- a silky., creamy texture that is buildable in colour
Mineralize- a long wearing highly pigmented shadow
Veluxe Pearlfusion- a pearl matte finish, highly pigmented
The range of different shades is huge, from golds to purple and green, there is a shade for everyone. I love how easy it is to work with these shadows, I particularly love Woodwinked, Mythology and Satin Taupe.
