Why I’ve fallen in love with Mac Cosmetics again this Autumn
Mac Cosmetics was THE brand to shop at when I was younger. It catered for darker skin tones such as mine, and was the brand that you simply progressed to buying when you could afford a little more than just drug store alternatives. MAC was the brand that got me wearing bright orange and yellow eyeshadow (yes, that was a look when I was 18) and it was the brand were I bought my first eyeshadow palette from and really learnt how to do a smokey eye from. So, you could say what happened and why I stopped using Mac. Well, my brand and product options grew and I became curious to discovering and testing out new brands. Still, even with all the extra choices, my beloved Mac Concealer and foundation always remained in my arsenal of go-to beauty items. When Mac Cosmetics finally launched on Lookfantastic earlier in the year, it made me rediscover and fall back in love with the brand and of course bring out the Lady Danger in me! Below are some favourite Mac Cosmetics items that I’m loving this Autumn.
MAC Eye Shadow x 9 in Burgundy £25* – a highly pigmented palette consisting of a variety of finishes including matte, satin and frost across nude bronze and pink shades. Your perfect handbag-sized Autumn companion.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Global Glow £24.50* this baked powder is the perfect highlighter for both the face and the body, giving all skin tones that shimmering glow. For a more dramatic effect, try wetting your makeup brush before application.
MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation £29.50 this is a lightweight foundation that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and gives a more natural look. I find that being so sheer, it gives more of a natural glowy look and more of an even toned complexion. I don’t recommend using this without concealer if you have bags you want to hide!
MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ £18* – A mist is definitely a luxury or an additional step to your makeup routine but either way, it is a great setting spray to use over your finished makeup look. I like to use this before and after makeup application.
