As a make-up hoarding fanatic, I’ll be the primary to confess that the joys of the hunt — the hunt itself — to search out new make-up to fall in love with, is one of the motivating components for why I like make-up and sweetness a lot.
There’s all the time one thing new to find, proper? A new approach to grasp? A new end, new method, a brand new plant-based ingredient found deep within the jungle, a model new model, a traditional model re-brand, a secret method, an historic skincare secret, a brand new GWP, BOGO, or a stunning LE palette?
On the identical time, there are days once I simply need to take it again to magnificence “consolation meals” — the previous requirements I do know so properly, and that I do know work for me, and for me, that’s all the time MAC. I’ll all the time be a MAC woman at coronary heart. 💕
On this look, I’m sporting some traditional MAC colours I’ve cherished for greater than this complete decade. It appears bizarre to say that, however I did the mathematics; it’s true!
There’s a touch of shade within the liner, however all the things else on the lids, cheeks and lips is impartial.
I like this look as a result of I can put on it wherever and in every single place. The lids are softly outlined with cooler-toned browns within the crease and a glowing peach from lash line to crease (to create the phantasm of extra deeply set eyes, since mine are getting extra hooded by the second!).
There’s additionally lash definition by manner of the liner, which is *not* a stark, inky black, or perhaps a brown. As a substitute, I’m sporting an eyeshadow referred to as MAC Membership, which is a stupendous shimmery peacock feather that goes from teal to inexperienced to grey to darkish brown. It’s GORGEOUS.
So, yeah, I’m sporting that alongside my higher lash line.
On the decrease lash line, I’m sporting a pencil liner that I additionally take into account a MAC staple, MAC Powersurge. It’s a heat, shimmery bronzed gold, and it provides slightly something-something, however it doesn’t get all up in your face. It’s one of my favorites! I feel it’s even subtler and fewer intense than a brown liner. I wore it day by day for nearly a 12 months.
On my cheeks, I’m sporting the primary MAC blush I ever fell in love with, MAC Blushbaby… It’s a matte pinkish beige.
And, on my lips, I’m sporting an up to date tackle an early-2000s lip. Yup, that mild, shiny nude lip everybody was sporting again within the day (together with their low-rise denims and camisole prime, of course)? I acquired there with MAC Stripdown lip liner, MAC Honey Love Lipstick, and good ol’ Angel Lipglass.
Oh! — I simply realized 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 mix of eyeshadows, however I can’t. It’s from probably the most unlikely palette from years and years in the past, from, like, Halloween! I by no means thought I’d fall in love with it, however I take advantage of it virtually every day. Keep in mind the Monster’s Bride palette? I don’t use the inexperienced shade (ever), however all the things else is a workhorse, so when you’re constructing a MAC palette, I can suggest all of these colours 100%.
The lightest shade — satiny beige Mylar — you should use as an all-over eyeshadow base to brighten your eye make-up, or, you possibly can even use it as a watch or a cheek highlighter. (Facet be aware: I simply seemed this up on the MAC web site, and it’s MIA; unhappy panda. 🙁 However you possibly can sub it with Shroom.)
The lighter cool-toned matte brown is Omega, which I’m sporting within the crease. It’s nice for pushing a hooded lid again *and* for filling out brows (I’m sporting it blended with Brun in my brows on this look). It’s nice if you would like a extremely ashy brown forehead, however you don’t need it to look too grey or too harsh.
You probably have any gaps in your forehead, it’s significantly nice for filling in sparse spots.
MAC Brun, LOVE OF MY LIFE. Carrying it in my brows and outer crease.
Membership is the liner, which I utilized with an angled brush moist with MAC Repair+.
Carbon, I’m probably not sporting on this look, however it’s your standard-issue black which you could put on with something and all the things.
Whereas we’re on the topic of MAC classics, please record the MAC classics you like down under. I’m curious!
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
P.S. I noticed this earlier as we speak, and now I can’t cease laughing! It’s a trailer for the Christmas film Elf (one of my favorites), recut and reimagined as a thriller… 🙂
