Hi guys! Today I’m sharing all of my favorites from MAC! There’s a special place in my heart for them because when I first started wearing make-up it was the only brand I really knew about so going to the MAC counter was magic. Here are my top 5 go to nude lips I’ve been using for years as well as some bonus favorite products from MAC!
1 // Amplified Lipstick in the color Blankety
2 // Satin Lipstick in the color FleshPot
3 // Matte Lipstick in the color Really Me
4 // Cremesheen Lipstick in the color Creme D’Nude
5 // LIMITED EDITION Cremesheen Lipstick in the color Bosom Friend
Other FAVS from MAC :
6 // Pro Longwear Paint Pot – I use the colors Painterly & Soft Ochre as a base for my shadows.
7 // Strobe Cream – I use color goldlite under my foundation & it makes you skin look so healthy and glowy. Also good for a no make-up make-up look.
8 // Prep + Prime Fix+ – I love the original, makes you so dewy & it is the best smell ever.
I know I normally only post about one product but there is a few I want to share to get up to date again.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Shadow Palette. I know I’m late to the game here but this palette actually changed my life. I’m sure you’re thinking yeah yeah another shadow palette. I would trade every shadow palette I have for this one. I will never use another make-up palette if I can help it. They are INSANELY pigmented. I have to use the tiniest bit of product to do my shadow everyday. These colors are perfect for brown eyes, but they would look amazing on any eyes. The colors are cohesive but different enough to make so many different looks.
The perfect pink lipstick. Finding a pink lipstick that has the perfect undertones to not make my teeth look yellow is so hard (a continual struggle). The formula is so creamy but is matte which I love. I have a few retro matte lipsticks that dry my lips out SO BAD, but this formula is a lot more moisturizing. (it’s called REALLY ME if the link doesn’t pull the correct color).
The biggest game changer of all. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder!! Wow. I apply this under my eyes and in my T Zone in the morning with a damp beauty blender and it lasts ALL DAY. I don’t get oil break through as the day goes on and it gives my skin a flawless smooth look. This is definitely busy body approved because I will go hours without looking at myself in the mirror and I don’t get scared when I finally see my reflection.
I want to finish off this post by talking a little bit about the New Year. There are so many resolutions to choose from, but this year the one that I chose is to conquer my fears. To be brave. To take every opportunity that presents itself. I’ve been debating jumping out of a plane, but we’ll see if it actually happens. You don’t have to wait until a New Year to change. You have the power to change at any time. To take the world by storm and make it your own. My story is TO BE CONTINUED…
Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is my ride or die (wow that’s a mouthful). The formula is perfect because it’s very lightweight. It gives you a good amount of coverage but it’s not thick so it never creases! It lasts all day long and blends in easily. The concealer comes in a tube with an easy application wand. I apply it in upside down triangles under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, on my forehead and chin. This gives you the most natural look instead of only doing your dark circles. I blend it out with the beauty blender and set it will a banana powder. I use the fair neutral color because I’m usually very pale, but I also have the light color and the formula is consistent between colors. If you love MAC’s Pro Longwear concealer you’ll love this one!
I’ve been searching for the perfect matte nude liquid lipstick and I haven’t been able to find it yet, but I did find the perfect creamy nude lipstick color from MAC! I have a hard time finding pinky nude color lipsticks because with my skin tone they all seem to look more orange that I like, but this one doesn’t. It’s called FLESHPOT, a pale-muted pinky beige satin lipstick. I wear this color every single day now!
