A go-to trendsetter of the beauty industry, MAC Cosmetics sets the bar high for editorial quality make-up on a more affordable scale. STYLE etc are discussing our top three can’t-live-without make up products from the synonymous beauty brand.
Favoured by many a make up artist and celebrity beauty buyer alike, Studio Fix offers slightly heavier coverage, ideal for long lasting wear and blemish concealing. The formula promises to conceal oil to achieve a more matte finish, with an SPF 15 rating to offer additional protection from sun damage (seek further advice on sun protection before wearing in place of sun cream).
In typical MAC form, Studio Fix offers a great range of shades to accommodate different shades. If getting consultations before you buy be sure to take advice from some artists with a pinch of salt as many are prone to gearing shoppers toward slightly darker hues than their natural colour, always stick to your own opinion on shade and you won’t be disappointed.
MAC lipsticks work best for adapting to different skin types and shades, making this nude basic an essential for all collections. Velvet Teddy has become a veteran staple of beauty bloggers across the globe and it is easy to see why.
The pale pink shade creates a matte base, in a subtle enough colour to wear everyday for all manner of occasions. The little details are taken care of in this lip product, right down to the fragrant scent which is signature for MAC products.
MAC palettes are legendary amongst beauty mavericks, the only issue in buying them is deciding on a palette. Palettes can be bought and built up from individual eye shadow purchases to create a customised set, or bulk purchased in a themed set. Prices vary depending on the collection you go for and number of shades, the set pictured is £25.00.
The range of textures is what makes MAC palettes so enticing. Glitter sets become the perfect accompaniment for party season and nudes befit the day to day grind. Combine a mixture of styles with satin eye shadows thrown in for further versatility to ensure your collection is ready to suit any occasion.
