My Guide to the MUST Have MAC Products!

13.5.17
Dubai - United Arab Emirates

MAC was the brand that first ignited my love for make up.. 



It takes me back to my teenage days, eagerly queuing up outside the MAC store waiting for the new exclusive collections to drop. I have so much love for the brand and even to this day I'm very rarely left disappointed. I'm sure many of you, like me find it hard to keep up with MAC and all there latest launches so I wanted to go back to the core of the brand and I wanted to shine light on some of those hero MAC products I'm rarely without. 

Strobe Cream 
Strobe Cream has been killing the make up game since highlighters even became a thing! I remember being mesmerised by this lilac based cream that added the most gorgeous glow to my base from back in the days. I used to mix it with foundation, I used to apply it under my base as a primer and I used to pop it onto the high points of my cheekbones. It really was a revolutionary product and even now all these years later, it's still a product I like to reach for to give me that glow. Strobe Cream has now extended its family and is available in many more tones - I've written about that HERE

Studio Fix Fluid 
This was the first foundation I ever bought! If you've never worn Studio Fix where have you been? This foundation to me, is still by far one of the best - it delivers such incredible coverage, it photographs beautifully and leaves your skin looking flawless. I will forever have a bottle of this in my foundation collection because I adore it, I wear it in most of my YouTube videos because it makes the skin look really polished.

Pro Longwear Concealer 
By far my favourite MAC concealer - fluid in consistency and excellent in coverage! You know I'm super fussy when it comes to my under eye area and this concealer has never let me down. I use this in an NW35 which has a slight pink undertone, this helps to counteract darkness and I love the way this products sits on the skin without appearing cakey or overly heavy. I also love this to contour with, I use it in the shade NC45 to give my base natural warmth which is easily buffed into the skin. 

Fix Plus 
Another hero product from MAC - who even wears make up without a spritz of this? I never used to see the point in 'setting' my make up with a spray but seriously the difference this makes is massive. I especially notice it when I'm in warmer climates like here in Dubai, my make up lasts for longer and my base looks more radiant. I also like to use this throughout the day to freshen up my face and keep my make up in place. 

Mineralize Skin Finish 
..You babe. What a beautiful powder, like seriously? I use the matte one in 'Deep/Dark' daily as a bronzer to warm up my skin and I use the highlighter in 'Global Glow' or 'Gold Deposit' to give my cheekbones life. I adore how finely milled these powders are and how well they sit on the skin. They blend in so well without leaving that cake/powdery finish. Life changed when I discovered these, no joke and now I use them daily!

Eye Shadow x 9 
Again I'm going to throw it back and tell you about my university days - every week I would spend a little bit of my student loan and treat myself to an eyeshadow to fill my MAC pro 15 palettes. Now collecting MAC eye shadows is easier than ever and these Eyes X 9 are amazing. I find the shades are pigmented, the colours are wearable and they are just so convenient and compact to carry in your make up bag. 9 shadows with endless possibilities to create day to night make up looks - this is by far one of the most genius products MAC have ever come out with.

Eye Brows 
I love a good brow pencil and the MAC one is such a precise way to perfect your brows. I generally prefer to fill in my brows to the minimum and this pencil allows me to fill in the gaps without going overboard. 

Matte lipstick 
If one brand does matte right you know it's MAC - My ultimate go to for matte lipsticks, rich in pigment, true in colour and long lasting on the lips - what's not to love? I actually believe I own like 90% of MAC Matte lipsticks and I think on a day to day basis they're all I wear. Whirl, Persistence and Velvet Teddy are my nude go to's - video on this coming soon! 

Hope you guys have enjoyed my guide to my MAC must haves. Do any of you also love these? What are your must have MAC items? 

Lots of Love
