A Face Full of MAC Classics
As a make-up hoarding fanatic, I’ll be the primary to confess that the joys of the quest — the hunt itself — to search out new make-up to fall in love with, is one of the motivating elements for why I love make-up and good looks such a lot.
There’s at all times anything new to find, proper? A new approach to grasp? A new end, new system, a brand new plant-based component found out deep within the jungle, a brand spanking new model, a vintage model re-brand, a secret system, an historic skincare secret, a brand new GWP, BOGO, or an attractive LE palette?
At the similar time, there are days once I simply wish to take it again to good looks “comfort food” — the outdated requirements I do know so neatly, and that I do know paintings for me, and for me, that’s at all times MAC. I’ll at all times be a MAC woman at center. 💕
In this glance, I’m dressed in some vintage MAC colours I’ve liked for greater than this whole decade. It turns out bizarre to mention that, however I did the mathematics; it’s true!
There’s a touch of colour within the liner, however the whole lot else at the lids, cheeks and lips is impartial.
I love this glance as a result of I will be able to put on it anyplace and far and wide. The lids are softly outlined with cooler-toned browns within the crease and a glowing peach from lash line to crease (to create the semblance of extra deeply set eyes, since mine are getting extra hooded by means of the second one!).
There’s additionally lash definition by means of method of the lining, which is *no longer* a stark, inky black, or perhaps a brown. Instead, I’m dressed in an eyeshadow known as MAC Club, which is a gorgeous shimmery peacock feather that is going from teal to inexperienced to grey to darkish brown. It’s GORGEOUS.
So, yeah, I’m dressed in that alongside my higher lash line.
On the decrease lash line, I’m dressed in a pencil liner that I additionally imagine a MAC staple, MAC Powersurge. It’s a heat, shimmery bronzed gold, and it provides a little bit something-something, but it surely doesn’t get all up to your face. It’s one of my favorites! I feel it’s even subtler and not more intense than a brown liner. I wore it each day for nearly a 12 months.
On my cheeks, I’m dressed in the primary MAC blush I ever fell in love with, MAC Blushbaby… It’s a matte pinkish beige.
And, on my lips, I’m dressed in an up to date tackle an early-2000s lip. Yup, you understand that gentle, shiny nude lip everybody used to be dressed in again within the day (together with their low-rise denims and camisole most sensible, of direction)? I were given there with MAC Stripdown lip liner, MAC Honey Love Lipstick, and just right ol’ Angel Lipglass.
Oh! — I simply discovered that I forgot so as to add a swatch of MAC Teddy liner, which I tightlined with.
I want I may take credit score for this mixture of eyeshadows, however I will be able to’t. It’s from probably the most not likely palette from years and years in the past, from, like, Halloween! I by no means concept I’d fall in love with it, however I exploit it virtually day by day. Remember the Monster’s Bride palette? I don’t use the golf green colour (ever), however the whole lot else is a workhorse, so for those who’re construction a MAC palette, I will be able to suggest all of those colours 100%.
The lightest colour — satiny beige Mylar — you’ll use as an all-over eyeshadow base to decorate your eye make-up, or, you’ll even use it as an eye fixed or a cheek highlighter. (Side be aware: I simply regarded this up at the MAC site, and it’s MIA; unhappy panda. 🙁 But you’ll sub it with Shroom.)
The lighter cool-toned matte brown is Omega, which I’m dressed in within the crease. It’s nice for pushing a hooded lid again *and* for filling out brows (I’m dressed in it blended with Brun in my brows on this glance). It’s nice if you wish to have a truly ashy brown forehead, however you don’t need it to seem too grey or too harsh.
If you’ve gotten any gaps to your forehead, it’s specifically nice for filling in sparse spots.
MAC Brun, LOVE OF MY LIFE. Wearing it in my brows and outer crease.
Club is the lining, which I carried out with an angled brush rainy with MAC Fix+.
Carbon, I’m no longer truly dressed in on this glance, but it surely’s your standard-issue black that you’ll put on with anything else and the whole lot.
While we’re at the topic of MAC classics, please listing the MAC classics you like down beneath. I’m curious!
Your pleasant community good looks addict,
P.S. I noticed this previous these days, and now I will be able to’t forestall giggling! It’s a trailer for the Christmas film Elf (one of my favorites), recut and reimagined as a mystery… 🙂
