THE BEAUTY EDIT: A FACE FULL OF MAC

20 August 2015

I apologise in advance for the late posting as I travelled to Shanghai yesterday and it was a full day of busy-ness while running through the airports for transit and expecting delays; I have planned, written and scheduled posts to make up for my lack of internet as well as time as I will be spending my time sight-seeing. Putting that aside, today's post I'm focusing on a brand itself and it is none other than MAC Cosmetics, and preparing your makeup with only MAC products [without any eye-makeup].

STEP 1 [PREP]: PREP + PRIME SKIN BASE VISAGE

The step between post-moisturiser and pre-foundation is important for the skin, as a layer of base will block out any impurities from hitting into the skin. This primer has been around for a few months now, and perfect for all skin types - with a layer of this your skin will glow from the shimmery particles from the primer so you'd look more awake and hydrated.

STEP 2 [BASE]: STUDIO FIX FLUID SPF15

On days when you need a full coverage base, this is the one for you. Comes with SPF15 it is the foundation you won't have to worry about sun-screen. I have a bit of love-hate relationship with this foundation, as sometimes I find it too thick on my skin but I suppose it's what the full-coverage base is for.

STEP 3 [CONCEAL]: STUDIO FINISH CONCEALER DUO

I love love love this concealer, it covers my blemishes like no other, while it doesn't dry out or cake my blemishes (if I have one); it's also great for the under-eyes if you have really dark circles. The texture is thick but not drying and one of the reasons why I like it.

STEP 4 [SETTING]: MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL [LIGHT+]

Setting makeup is very important if you do want it to last all day. What I reach for is this whenever I want my makeup to last [duh], especially for a full-day long event I powder this on my face because it's so light on the skin that it wouldn't make your skin looks cakey with the powder on, as au naturale as your skin can be. I use this to touch up my makeup whenever I feel like they're slipping away.

STEP 5 [BROWS]: PRO LONGWEAR WATERPROOF BROW SET

One of the best eyebrow products I've ever used. It's super waterproof as it says on the name of the product, and it comes very pigmented so your brows would look super full no matter how thin or thick your eyebrows are. It just fills in the sparse gaps and your eyebrows are set for the day. With this, your eyebrows can slay.

STEP 6 [LIPS]: LIPSTICK - RUBY WOO

Red lipstick is the most classic and iconic look for all women around the world. MAC's Rubywoo is one of the bright reds that every girl wouldn't miss out on; the texture isn't creamy but moisturising while it is also matte, but gliding on the lips was as smooth as silk. Needless to say it's one of my favourite lipsticks.

STEP 7 [FIX]: PREP + PRIME FIX+

Fixing the makeup after a few hours can be tricky but the Fix+ is here to help you out. Spray this onto your face about 10-15cm away and expect a breeze on your skin, while making your skin feeling fresh again; which the Fix+ is also useful in setting the makeup.

STEP 8 [REMOVE]: GENTLY OFF EYE AND LIP MAKEUP REMOVER

Sometimes attending events require a face full of heavy makeup and it can be super difficult to remove your eye and lip makeup, and that's when the Eye and Lip Makeup Remover comes in handy. It's oil and water based and you'll need to shake the bottle for both elements to combine together before putting them on cotton pads and let them do their magic.

Have you tried any of these? What are your favourite MAC products?
