Yesterday I showed you MAC's new Brunette, Blonde Redhead collection, and I promised that today I'd show you my favorite items from the collection.
I'm not quite as blonde as I once was, especially after this weekend's visit to my stylist Shannon. My hair is naturally a brownish nothing, with my blonde highlights, I come out in the end still kinda between blonde and brunette. In addition I have very fair skin, so that influences my picks. I picked items from both the blonde and brunette selections.
Mineralize Skinfinish Blush in Blonde
With my pale complexion, a light, subtle blush looks much more natural on me than darker shades. This Blonde shade is beautiful! The compact is actually very large (the same size as other Mineralize products, but larger than a regular MAC blush).
There is shimmer in this blush, which if you are not careful with can come across as an oily face. I get around this problem by applying a light layer of translucent powder over the blush. It blends well and sticks around all day! Love, Love, Love!
MAC Henna Eyeshadow
This is my brunette pick, and you can see that this shade (described as a "dark gold" by MAC) is a gold with some green and bronze leanings. It's very highly pigmented and I have been using it as a base color on my lid, layered under more neutral colors. Absolutely beautiful! I'll be trying it out in a more smokey eye as well, I have high expectations for this shade.
MAC Pincurl Eyeshadow
I couldn't get this shade to show up in any swatch pictures, and I know in this picture it looks incredibly blah and bland. Almost like concrete. But, trust me, this Blonde Shade (a "dusty white") is amazing.
I've had great results using this shade completely alone. I apply over my entire lid, shading it up over the crease just a bit. I've been pairing it with black eye liner, usually a very thin line that I've really smudged into the lash line. The shadow just has a very ethereal look almost. I can't describe it any more than that. But, this is my new "go to" color for a fast easy eye!
With so many new MAC collections, there's a lot of new stuff in my house! Tomorrow I'll show you my new lippies from the collections.
