We all know MAC, and we all love MAC. That’s why I’ve picked the best selection of what MAC has to offer at the moment, for a run through of why we (still) love them.
Let’s start with the basics- foundation. The base of any good make up routine, you need your skin looking clear, matte- and most importantly- matching your natural skin colour. MAC’s Matchmaster SPF 15 foundation allows you to have all of these. The translucent pigments in the foundation allow the colour to adapt to your personal skin tone, which also means isn’t too thick a foundation- allowing it to look natural. And of course, the SPF 15 protects your skin from the sun (even if there’s no visible sun your skin can still be damaged by UV rays!).
Next up, the miracle Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. You may look at it and think- umm but my skin isn’t that white! The powder comes in this universal white colour that suits all shades and provides an invisible way to set make up to reduce shine and minimize the look of pores, lines and any imperfections. You can even just wear it over bare, moisturized skin to give you an extra glow.
Now we’re going to need to bring some colour to the equation- in the form of Cream Colour Base and CremeBlend Blush. The multi purpose Colour Base allows you to highlight specific areas of the face, and can be applied over bare skin, foundation or powder- allowing you to have a variety of outcomes as it can also be applied with fingers, brush or sponge. Total control. The CremeBlend Blush is specifically made for the cheeks. The creamy and easy to blend formula gives you a dewy and smooth finish to complete your look.
Sometimes, it’s too easy to remember why we all love and trust MAC.
